One of my real life friends asked me about what sort of review I do. Right now we work on a weekly letter of the alphabet so how do I know it's sticking?
Here is a list of the ways I review and assess what letters Hudson really knows and what we need to work on.
The alphabet games on Starfall really reinforce each of the letters and the sounds.
2. Everday letter hunts.
I ask Hudson to point out random letters in signs, on book pages, on the side of vehicles... pretty much anywhere there is writing we play this game.
3. I write letters and short words on out cookie sheet chalkboard. Then Hudson uses magnet letters and matches them up with what I have written.
4. We play "What does __________ start with?"
Hudson: Mom what does garlic start with?
Mom: What's the first sound?
Hudson: (Sometimes with help) Guh.
Mom: So garlic starts with...
So those are just some of the ways we alphabet review in our house. What are your ideas?
