More Letter Sounds

I never just teach 26 letters but 4 extra ones are important to teach as well. Ch, Th, Sh and Wh are important to teach just like the other letters. I put in two different versions so you can do Ch with chopping or cho-cho train.

Oh, by the way, I will tell my daughter to explain the little story or movement that goes with each sound.

I will also include a few backs but these you can make your selves.

More Letter Cards

We have had a request for the rest of the letter cards so here they are:

and making a yucky face

hand and make the sound f sounds like a breeze
