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.
We have had a request for the rest of the letter cards so here they are:
For E- Short e sound, "e" eggs, breaking an egg and making a yucky face For F- Fan fluttering "f, f, f" make a fan with your hand and make the sound f sounds like a breeze For G- Gulping gophers "g, g, g" like you are gulping For H- Hounds hurry "h, h, h" like a dog panting For M- monkeys munching, "m, m, m" like it tastes m, m, good For N- noisy noses "n, n, n" make a nasal sound and touch nose For I- icky, icky insects, "i, i, i" slap the insects as you say "i, i, i" For J- Jenny jumps (can be any name) have the kids jump and say "j, j, j"
For S- "s, s, s" Snakes hiss, make snake slithering with arm For T- timers ticking "t, t, t"move hands back and forth like a grandfather clock ticking. For Q- Quack, quack "q, q, q" make duck beak with hands For R- robots running "act like a robot moving your hands and making the r sound "r, r, r" For u- "u, u, up umbrella", pretend like you are opening up an umbrella For v- Vinny the Vaccum, pretend vaccuming the floor while saying "v, v" like a vaccum sounds For w- washer washing, "w, w, w" make your hands twist back and forth like a washing goes round and round. For x- x-ray, make "ks" sound as you pretend to make an x-ray For c- cameras clicking "c, c, c" taking pretend pictures For d- dinosaurs dancing, "d, d, d" making a little song with the sound and dancing silly.
I will try to post videos of the girls doing the movements if it is confusing.
I am the grandmother. I have five adult children that I homeschooled. I have 22 1/8 grandchildren. My three daughters homeschool their children. I live in Texas and none of my children live near us. So I teach Spanish classes to some of my grandchildren over the phone and internet. I love to teach Spanish so I teach groups of homeschooled children here also. I love to teach young children to read. I have taught eleven of my grandchildren to read. I also love teaching writing and am teaching some writing classes to homeschoolers here this year. In fact, I love teaching almost anything.
I am the youngest in our family. I was homeschooled until I went to 10th grade public school. I graduated from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education. I plan on homeschooling my children in both English and Spanish.
