"B" is for Butterfly
Make a Butterfly…and Celebrate the Letter B!
Every letter makes at least one sound. Seems simple, right? But to most kindergarteners, it’s anything but. In teacher talk, this is a fundamental skill called “letter-sound correspondence.” And it could not be more important—in fact, it’s one of the most crucial steps in early reading.
For parents, helping your child learn this concept outside of the classroom couldn't be simpler. Every time you talk about a letter or its sound, and explore that connection with your child, you’re helping him build his fundamental reading skills…especially if you can do it in a way that is fun and relaxed.
So here’s a simple butterfly refrigerator magnet that you and your child can make together. It starts with the letter B—and ends up as a practical everyday tool!
