My youngest son is learning to recognize his letters and letter sounds. Letters, by themselves, had no meaning to him and he kept wanting me to help him write words. I wanted his zeal for learning words to continue, so I decided to teach him the letters and letter sounds in conjunction with word families. Word families are words that rhyme. For example: at words are cat, hat, rat, sat, etc. My mom found us these books that are part of the “Fun with Phonics” series. We are using these as a springboard to learn the letters, letter sounds, and words.
To go along with these books, I am creating some flip books for him to go through. Repetition is the key in learning, so anything that I can do that has these same sounds, will be helpful to him.

The first book I made is the “at” words flip book. It goes along with the “Learn to Read with Fat Cat” book by Sue Graves, but can be used by itself. I added in the word “vat” that was not in the book, just so all of the individual letters that could be used to make a word that he could understand, was a part of the flip book. I hope this helps your little readers as it will help mine!
