Hi there, Mama! Do you have a preschooler working on phonics and letter recognition? This is the sort of skill that benefits from being presented in a wide variety of ways, involving different senses and experiences. “Alphabet Eggs” provide a fun way to experience the alphabet and it’s sounds. This big set, that even includes printable baskets, This printable!!
For ages 2 to 6!
Start by learning letter shapes. “Big D and Little D” or “Upper case D and Lower case D”, whichever you prefer to use. Add in phonics by saying ” /d/, /d/, D!” which stands for… (Go ahead and ‘crack’ the egg open!) ” /d/, /d/, Dog!”
It won’t take much time at all for your children to master these sounds. They’ll love playing with these eggs so much that they’ll never even notice they’re learning!
Older children can practice putting these in alphabetical order! My 6 year old helped me do that with this set. She was delighted! And she’s ready to help her little brother work on all of these sounds, while she, sneakily, will reinforce some concepts she needs to be an excellent reader. 🙂 Win-Win!!
