Extending this activity

  • -Read "More More More Said the Baby" by Vera Williams. Exaggerate the beginning sounds in the words as you read.

    -Take a walk around the house or neighborhood and identify beginning sounds. Allow the child to point out three objects that all begin with the same sound!

Adjust for an older child

Encourage the child to identify the letter that the target word begins with.

Adjust for a younger child

Focus on objects that the young child can learn to say and practice saying the words. Then say several words in a row that begin with the targeted sound (mommy, milk, man, more). The goal is that the child begins to mimic the sound with the words.
