Just for fun, I added some pages to the end that make this book look like a real book. After I got the book in the mail, I realized that the suggestions would actually be really good for someone else who might find themselves reading the book to Jacob.
|Can you believe I didn't catch that? It still boggles my mind|
that one can read something so many times and never see a
mistake like that! :)
Please keep in mind, that this book and the others that follow are to use when my son is older. He is just now showing signs of really wanting to learn. He is still in the letters and sounds stage.
This is the latest sight word activity I've made to go along with this book. These aren't all of them. I just picked a few to photograph. It is very rough in form, but Jacob likes it. He is still too young to read the words, but finding and naming the letters is like a puzzle for him. Each time he works on this activity and others listed in the book, he is building pre-reading skills. He is not quite four yet. Him being able to read the book is not my goal at this point. My goal is for him to learn that letters have meaning. Letters have sounds, and when thoses sounds are put together, words are formed. I also want him to have fun while learning. When he has found all the letters for a word, we do sound it out and say the word together. He feels like such a big boy and gives the biggest smile! If you want to do this with your child, I would recommend using clear contact paper to laminate the cards to keep them from getting torn up so easily.
You are always welcomed to email me with questions about an activity. I will do my best to help. I know other readers and I would also love to hear your favorite activities that you use with your children. I look foward to hearing them!
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
