This activity is one of many components necessary for a quality early literacy curriculum.
Have your child say an object and then circle the beginning sound of the object. You can also cut these into individual squares to make it a more isolated activity.
The Book Chart included is a great motivational tool for your child. Start each week by putting a circle on the chart to give them a goal to reach that week. Every time your child reads a literacy story, plays a game or completes an activity sheet they can put a sticker on the chart. You can give your child incentives if they meet their weekly goal.
