Wow!! It’s really big help! Thank you so much!
I just printed out your – No Prep Activity Cards. These are awesome and I plan to use them for an assessment. Thank you so much! You wouldn’t happen to have a recording sheet to go with this, do you?
I’m sorry – I don’t!
do you teach phonics first or phonemic awareness? Is their a breakup age wise for these skills? what ll can you start with a three year old?
Please help as i have a little one whom i am homeschooling. Your guidance would be helpful and appreciated.
You start with phonemic awareness. I recommend teaching your child rhyming, syllables, and hearing beginning sounds in words; these are good places to start with.

Thank you so much for the video and resources. Great help to clarify concepts.
You’re very welcome, Maria!
Thank you so much for your information and breakdown of concepts that I still have trouble with as a new teacher. I love all your products and how you make it simple to understand. I was having a hard time with these two topics, so this was a nice video explanation. Thank you again!
I’m so glad to hear that this was helpful, Doris!
I had to laugh as I was watching the video of your daughter doing the cards because I had a shouting match going on in the background of my house as well and I couldn’t even hear yours! We have a loud house as well 😉 Thanks so much!
Ha! I’m glad I’m in good company. 🙂
