These 4 pre-literacy activities help with identifying initial sounds, breaking down long words using rhythm, recognizing rhyming word pairs and identifying final sounds.
Please note that a speech target is whatever speech or language skills that kids can say or do correctly some of the time. These are appropriate skills to practice. Examples of speech targets include identifying beginning and end sounds, which help kids to guess words, using rhythm and actions to break down and say longer words, and rhyming. Rhyming is a fun skill for kids to learn for nursery rhymes, jokes, songs, active play chants and to predict words while reading.
