I have thoroughly enjoyed homeschooling my two younger boys their preschool lessons this year. We have gone from not knowing most (honestly, it was almost ANY) their letters to identifying the letter and knowing their corresponding sound!
We are taking it very slow (almost too slow for the 4 year old and just right for the newly turned 3 year old). We are focusing on a single letter each week.
Each week we make a craft with the letter we are learning. Some weeks we can come up with creative and clever letters. Other weeks we struggle with our creativity.
Here are a few of our letters from our letter wall (in our play room) that help encourage and remind the boys of their letter sounds.
I am using a hodge podge of different resources to teach the little boys. I am using zoo phonics, star fall, reading eggs, workbooks I picked up from CostCo, and of course Pinterest!
The biggest thing I have learned from committing to teaching the little boys, is to have fun with learning! Learning takes time (for everyone involved). Everyone learns at a different pace and in different ways. That is okay. That is how God made us. It is what makes us unique. Finding what clicks and how we learn is the exciting part of life!
