Letter Language

Pre-Schooler Anytime Anywhere

Use a letter, like B, to begin every word you say. Instead of “Hello, how are you” say, “Bello, bow bar boo” Encourage your child to use the same letter to begin the words of their response: “I am fine, how are you” would become “Bye bam bine, bow bar boo” How long can you keep it up?

See what your child is learning

To keep the game going, your child must focus and think flexibly to switch the letters in the words they say. It also helps them to think hard about what each letter of the alphabet sounds like. Making these connections between letters and their sounds is important in learning language.
