White Level (Learning Sounds)
Updated: 4 days ago
Some of the children in our preschool classrooms (and some of our toddlers are ready for this as well) are learning the sounds that letters make; we call this White Level. This isn't exactly how we teach White Level, but it is pretty close and a very good video. We keep track of the sounds that each child knows and try to give daily lessons on new sounds. It may be a good idea to teach one sound for a day or two, unless they learn them more quickly. It's also fun to walk around the house together pointing out items that begin with the sound you are learning! Tip:Try not to give lessons on sounds with letters that look similar (such as b, d, p or q) too close together.
Fun ideas: make letters with shaving cream, play dough, paint brush and water on ground outside, out of pieces of cereal, beads...
