Practice Letter Sounds...
While you are out and about with your child at the grocery store, doctors office, park or wherever, take the opportunity the practice the sounds. Simply choose a letter and ask your child to find something that begins with the same letter. Kids generally love this game and will search high and low to find an object beginning with the stated letter.
OR... give your child a few old magazines, then name a letter. Have them look through the magazines for a picture of something that begins with the same letter.
OR... play Stack the Sounds. Using the tiles from a Scrabble game, turn them over so none of the letters are showing. Let your child choose a tile, then name the letter and the sound. If they can, they keep the tile. Let them keep choosing tiles and as they know more letters and sounds let them stack their tiles. See how high of a stack they can achieve.
OR... Write each letter of the alphabet on a post-it note. Place all of the letters on a table. Let your child take one letter at a time and "stick-it" to something in your home that begins with the same letter. Some letters will be quite easy as generally homes have several things that begin with some letters. Other letters will be more difficult, so give your child ample time to consider where the sticky note should go.
