Alphabet Animations and Letter Sounds

If you go to the Starfall site, there are tools to help your child learn the alphabet sounds. I usually emphasize the sounds of the letters rather than focusing on each letter name (although they obviously need to know the names too, lol). Also, I tend to teach/place emphasis on lowercase letters first.

Anyway, these are cute - I didn't check letter "P" so I don't know what's there (when I get alphabet books or puzzles I always look at this letter first to see if it has a you-know-what ;)


***Edited to add - The "p" word I am avoiding is "pig". The kids will go on and on about how we don't eat pork, etc. This is not a bad thing but because they are so young, it becomes a distraction and they lose focus, so I avoid pictures of them whenever possible. Besides,penguin starts with "p" too. ;)

Salaam alaikum sister,
I've followed your blog for a while, but never commented. I don't have kids, but I still enjoy your blog and will pass along some of the info to my married friends. :)

What "p" word are you avoiding? (I know, curiosity killed the cat, lol.)

Cheers!

As salaamu 'alaikum UniMuslimah,

May ALLAH make things easy for you and your family, (AMEEN). JazakILLAH Khairin for stopping by and for your kindness.

We avoid pictures of pigs and I find that most of the time when we get anything educational, that is the only animal/word the authors can think of.

Take care,
wa salaam,
Nakia

As salaam alaikum,

We use Starfall.com from time to time as well. Just last night, I found myself singing the tune, "Just chunk that word you don't know, lol."

Wa 'alaikum as salaam,

It's a really helpful resource for us too. Oh no, don't get it stuck in my head, lol.
