Teaching Letters and Sounds to Preschoolers Is Not Just Teaching the ABC Song

I have been a discourse language pathologist for quite some time. At the point when I am doing language training with kids as youthful as three years of age to address mistake sounds in their discourse, I am exceptionally mindful that since they are not yet perusers, they don’t have the very comprehension of sounds and letters that more seasoned youngsters as of now have. Some preschool kids know about letters and may know the letter set tune. The association between a letter and a sound, nonetheless, isn’t normally something that youngsters learn until they go to pre-k or kindergarten. This is a lot later than the association ought to be made. Letters and sounds are various ideas and it is as vital to show the association between the two for all intents and purposes to show the actual letters. I show the letter name matched with the composed letter and afterward show the sound that the letter makes. These are undeniably educated simultaneously to provide the kids with a full comprehension of abc kids the associations and give them great fundamental information to assist them with mastering perusing abilities all the more without any problem.

Guardians will by and large show their kids the exemplary letter set melody that is sung to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. A tune is an extraordinary way for individuals of all ages to retain data. It is essential to likewise coordinate what the kids are singing to an image of the letters as they are singing them. In the event that there is no substantial association made between the letter that is sung and heard and the letter that is composed and seen, then the kids are simply learning an irregular tune. Learning the mark for an image or an item is the manner by which these preschoolers have proactively taken in the jargon that they know. Guardians have given marks to things in the youngster’s current circumstance. All kids ought to have a letter set banner or diagram or the like that ought to be brought out when the ABC tune is sung. They ought to be instructed to contact each letter as they are singing it. This will keep away from that solitary “LMNOP” bunch that they plainly believe is one letter.

The subsequent stage for the kids to learn is that each letter utters a sound. This expression will assist them with discovering that there is a contrast between a letter and a sound that it makes. A similar graph can be utilized while showing the kids that each letter utters a sound. I like to utilize a tune that I heard in a pre-k homeroom with each of my children in language training. I take the sound that they are focusing on and put it into the tune. The melody is to the tune of “hot cross buns” and it would go this way: “D says duh, D says duh, each letter makes a sound and D says duh.” This can be utilized with each sound. I utilize the short vowel sounds while singing the vowels. At the point when vowels are long they say their own letter name.
