My oldest DD is going into Kindergarten this fall. She is less interested in learning letters and more into other things, such as science and social studies. She is very intelligent, but how do I get her past this barrier before Kindergarten of not knowing all of her letters? I feel like if she knows them and her sounds by the end of the summer, she will excel in Kindergarten, and it would give her a great jump start to her education.
Anyone have tips for teaching letters and letter sounds that is engaging for a child who isn't extremely interested in it? lol
Awww, and I just realized I bumped up a category from preschoolers to school agers :( awwww!

Oh! I don't know if she'll be interested in this, but when my little guy was learning his alphabet he LOVED this video :
And Leapfrog is awesome. DS LOVES them, even though he's kind of outgrown it. They have videos that teach the alphabet and how to sound the letters out phonetically. And a letter of the day sounds like a great idea, too. :)
