This activity is great for practicing beginning sounds and letter matching. All you need is some large and small lids! Early pre-reading skills are so important to create a strong reading foundation to build on. As children learn to read, they must draw on a backpack of skills and knowledge that help not only decode the text but also make meaning from it. Trying to teach a child who has not demonstrated a grasp on pre-reading skills to read can lead to frustration and anxiety for the young child—it isn’t developmentally appropriate.
Start saving some large and small lids!
Before we started the activity. Kysen and I went through the letters and their sounds. Then he was ready to have some fun! He had to pick a letter from the smaller lids. Then exaggerate the sound as he said words to go with the beginning sounds as he matched the letters.
