Listen to the audio and learn the ‘sounds’ of the alphabet whilst having a little chat all about Halloween.
A note to parents. This is a fun way of introducing the name of the letter and the corresponding sound. They will also be able to see the letter ‘symbol’ and learn to associate it with the name and sound.
We can wander through the alphabet and discover lots of letters like
A has the sound of ‘ a ‘ for Abrakadabra, Alakazamm, let’s have as much fun as we can ..
Listening to the audio with your child gives you the opportunity to have a chat with them. For example h for hands. You can reinforce the importance of making sure your children hold hands with you or another adult if they go out on Halloween.
Tip: You could point to or hold up the letter as you hear /say the name and sound.
You can expand and print the a to z letters and words then point to the letter whilst listening to the audio.
