Thank you so much for always providing great resources and freebies ☺️ They have been very helpful!
I laughed out loud when I read:
I’ve been having the same issues with kids just switching the ending sound!! ?
WOW! I love these freebies. Thank you so much.
You’re very welcome, Linda!
Is there a way to just get all the freebies in one download? These look and sound great! I am just a bit confused by clicking back and forth to each post. There is so much on each post it makes it a bit overwhelming.
No – they’re just available as individual downloads. Usually the freebie is toward the bottom with a big image that says “click here” or something like that.
what come after letter recognition please?
After children know their letters, they should work on letter sounds. After that, they might be ready to start building short vowel words and learning simple sight words. This post might be helpful: https://www.themeasuredmom.com/reading-skills-kids-need-theyre-ready-sound-out-words/
