For part three of Craftulate‘s 5-day series titled “Play, Craft and Learn with Dinosaurs” we are going outside for a really easy but efficient activity.
Nico loves the show Dinosaur Train, and they have an A to Z dinosaur song, so I thought it would be good to get his attention on listening to first letter sound.
We made a list with the dino names but we also added more common words in English and French to give him more of a chance. You can download it here to print for free. I explained to him to listen to the first letter I say and he had to find it. I called the dino name pronouncing the first letter extra well and if he didn’t get it after a few tries I would move on to the regular words in English and French and pronounced them the same way. He’s not quite grasping the concept of sounds like a letter. To him letters are something totally separate from words, he’ll get it eventually
