As we continue to work on new ways to practice letter sounds, I keep thinking about how important learning phonics can be to a beginning reader. They need all the extra review to make sure they can read letter sounds quickly. Otherwise, sounding out words becomes very challenging. So we will practice, practice, practice and in the meantime, make the practice fun, fun, fun.

How to Set Up the Letter Sounds Clip Cards

How to Use the Christmas Letter Sounds Clip Cards
Just let your child know that these clip cards are for letter sounds and you should be good to go! I tried to avoid any words that could be confusing and kept it just to obvious words.

Isn’t Santa and his gang the cutest? I am all ready for them to fly to our house and the boys are quite ready as well.
