Pre-School Reading & Writing Practice

One of our focus areas at the moment is Literacy so we're spending a lot of time reading together (nothing unusual here, we've done that since birth!), singing alphabet songs (also not something we've only just started), and learning how to write letters.

I've made flash cards of frequently used words, laminated them and stuck them in various places around the house. Things like 'fridge', 'bath', and some others have been liberated by other little hands (aka Little Moo's curious brother). Now I've taken to sticking a few up on the ceiling above Little Moo's bunk bed so she can practise reading them at bed time:

I'll make a point of swapping them with other words in due course.

On our literacy shelf in the school room we also have tubs of magnet letters. Little Moo has enjoyed making words and putting them up on the whiteboard as well as the fridge. It's great practise for sounding out the letters and putting them with others to see what words can be sounded out.

We also have a set of Disney 'read-along' books with a CD for her to use, but it's a little premature for that just yet.

There's also a lovely wipe clean book for practising letter writing:

And I also printed some alphabet tracing printables  laminated those, put some tracing paper ontop and got Little Moo using those.

  Funny how she was more keen doing that, than tracing a princess picture from her colouring book :-)
