Start your day off right with a few fun ideas for reinforcing letters and their sounds!

  1. Pancake letters – pour pancake batter on a skillet to form letters for the child to recognize.  Remember to pour the letters backwards so that they will be correct when the pancake is flipped!  We spell our names at least once a week in pancake batter!
  2. Set your oven to broiler, and use squeeze butter to write letters on a piece of bread.  Toast the bread in the oven or in a toaster oven (not a toaster).  The butter will brown and the letter will be very visible!
  3. Arrange dry cereal in a letter shape (such as Cheerios or Honeycomb).  See how many letters your child can create on his or her own!
