phonic crafts letter j

J is very interested in letters again and has decided he wants to start doing some of his letter book crafts and this week he asked to do J. I thought he was going to ask to do something about his name but it was J is for Jellyfish – so that’s what we did. Working on letter recognition with phonics (or letters sounds) is one of the first steps to reading and making connections between the letter and the sound at the beginning of the word is one of the steps in that process.

We are in the middle of a Mummy do it phase and so I was told to draw eyes on the jelly fish. He then stuck them to the letter j he had glued down.
