If you are teaching your children the sounds that the alphabet letters make or they are learning them in school, I have an easy activity to share with you.
All you need is a whiteboard (or chalkboard), and a basket with a few of your child’s toys or things from around the house. Also, when gathering the items for this activity, please make sure some of the items do start with the letter sound your child is learning.
Here is what you do:
Divide the board into two sections. On one side, write the letter your child is currently working on, and on the other side write NOT (whatever the letter is being studied).
For instance, if my child was studying the sound of the letter Bb, I would write Bb on the left side of the board and NOT Bb on the right.
Next, have your child pick up an object from the basket. If you want to make this part feel more game like you can even blindfold your child or have them close their eyes.
Now they have to place the item they picked in the right section by saying its name, and listening to the sound the beginning letter of the word says.
Take a block for example, would it go under Bb or NOT Bb?
