Tip for making the most out of your educational toys at home:
Use the magnetic letters and put a word on the refrigerator, like “cat” or “top” or “bake.” Then, any time you’re in the kitchen and your child or children wander in, have a quick rhyme game.
Depending on the age and abilities of the child, say:
- How many words can you create that rhyme with the word on the fridge?
- Let’s say all of the rhyme words together.
- Now you choose a starting word, and I’ll rhyme with yours.
- Let’s make some sentences using as many of those rhyme words as we can.
Making solid comparisons like this and isolating individual sounds this way is a great way of developing phonological awareness for little ears.
