  • Different ideas for learning Kindergarten skills? Color matching, shape finding, looking for things that begin with different letter sounds, having meals featuring things that all begin with one letter and attaching a mini-lesson (think Fish and Fries, Burgers with Bacon, Soup and Sandwich)

  • You can help him learn letters by pointing out the first letter in brands/logos he comes into contact with regularly.

    Example: "M" McDonalds, "C" Cheerios, "F" Ford.

    Its helpful to use elements from his world rather than flash cards and stuff because the logos mean something to him. It's easier for him to make and remember the connection between the shape of the letter and the letter name.

  • oh and you have to do this every day.. practice the letters with him. Get flash cards... there are huge boards that you can get where they have the abc with pictures too... use those. you can aslo get a white board and draw them for hm and have him go up and draw them too. and when you are in the kitchen or any room... try to say the beginning letter of each item.. that might be fun for him

  • My son is autistic and had a hard time remembering his letter sounds. I got him the Leap Frog letter factory video and paired it with flash card and he learned the sounds quickly. The video has a catchy little song that goes with the letter sounds.

    That's a good one that I forgot about! I also recommend LeapFrog Word Launch and Fridge Phonics. Pretty much all of the LeapFrog products are wonderful! =)
