Clothespins , index cards, markers cut out pictures from a "First Dictionary" or magazine.
Glue pictures on index cards with clearly printed words below , for example f-o-x. Be sure to have corresponding clothespins with letters written on each, so child will not have to take a letter off a finished card. Part of the fun for my little one is standing each card up on its legs before moving on to the next. Each time the child works with these cards , they become more and more familiar with them and will begin to know them by sight.
