In my Amazing Action Alphabet Flip Chart the letter I is really itching to tell you his sound...
The /i/ /i/ /i/ sound can be a hard for some children.
MANY children mix up the vowels E, U, and I.
A fun way for a child to remember the /i/ sound is by dressing up letter I in a simple witches hat. Don't forget lower case i, he doesn't want to be left out!
I found it easy to practice this sound when pretending you're a witch. Exaggerate and cackle the /i/ sound! Crinkle up your noes and do the letter I action by pretending to scratch your itch like I does in the insect story . Now, in your witchiest voice say...
/i/ /i/ /i/
Dressing up letters can be fun for the holidays. I talk about more letter dress up ideas HERE.
Hope you're ready for the sugar high this Friday. I know my kids are counting down the hours!
