A Collection of Activities to Help Your Little Ones Master Their Vowels

To teach the vowel sounds start with the 5 earliest developing vowels uh, ah, ee, oo and oh. Modeling these vowels with hand cues is a great way to provide more visual feedback and help teach the vowels. I’ve linked a helpful video below of Pam Marshalla, an SLP and expert in motor speech disorders demonstrating the hand cues she uses to teach these vowels. ~MommySpeechTherapy

Lego Word Family Buildings



These Word Family Lego Buildings are a great way to encourage your child to hear/see patterns in reading.  This is an important skill because it allows children to begin “reading” by grouping sets of letters within a word.  To put it simply, word families (sometimes called “chunks”) are groups of words that rhyme.  The first part of a word is called the onset and the last part of the word is conveniently called the rime (although it is spelled differently).  Word families share a similar “rime” as the onset changes. ~IcanTeachMyChild
