I Know my Letters!
Learning all the letters and the sound each letter makes is one skill needed to become a great reader!

Read an alphabet book such as Old Black Fly by Jim Aylesworth or I Stink! by Kate McMullan or My Little Sister Ate One Hare by Bill Grossman. More great ABC books can be found at (link to ABC/123 booklist)

Letter Fun

Can you move your body to make each letter of the alphabet?

Get a bucket of water and a big paint brush and paint the letters on a sidewalk with water and then watch them disappear!

Go to the beach and draw your name in the sand with a stick.

Shape playdough into the letters – an adult can help you spell something you like to do in the summer (BEACH, PARK, ZOO…)

Can you jump rope all the way through the alphabet song? Try washing your hands while singing it when you reach the end your hands should be clean!

Can you think of a food that starts with each letter of the alphabet? Read Lois Ehlert’s Eating the Alphabet

Make a picture for each letter of your name. Draw or find pictures of things that start with that letter.
