Alphabets and Phonics for my 3 year old [G - P]

Alphabets and Phonics for my 3 year old [G - P]

In term 2, we are revising letters A to F and learning letters G to P. In fact, this is the second round of learning alphabets and phonics. Faith have done a round of recognizing letters and their sound last year. But this year, she is learning more vocabulary for each alphabet. 

Here are some of the activities we have done for each letter.

Letter G

Learning new vocabulary and the sound of letter G.

Learning the shape of letter G and our button craft giraffe.

Faith was asked to point out words starting with letter G from the newspaper.

Faith identified these G words from the 'Today' newspaper. 

Colouring small letter g. 

Letter H

Activities for letter H. 

Making a Hippopotamus: Sponge painting 

Letter I
I for ice-cream. Painting and colouring ice-cream. 

Letter J

For sensory play, Faith made the planet- Jupiter out of play dough.

I use this chance for Faith to explore colour mixture and taught her about different shades of brown.

Rolling it out.

Using the different shades to make Jupiter. 

Just practicing rolling.

Letter K

Letter L

Creating a ladybug.

Making an attractive lollipop. 
Tracing the leaves.

Letter M

Letter N

Creating our very own "The Starry Night" with oil pastels.

Faith learns more about "The Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh. 

Letter O

O for Octopus. An octopus made of plastic plate and some straws. 
Tracing activity. 


Tracing, then learning to 'copy' the drawing. 

Not bad for her first attempt at 'copying' the images. 

Letter P

 Literature Based Learning 

This book was a gift by my lovely friend , Jacqueline.

Activity 1: Identifying words in the book that starts with letter P. 
 Faith seems to like identifying words and she is getting faster and more accurate. 

Activity 2: Identifying some animals that are pink. 
I'm actually quite surprised that she could come out with pig and pink dolphin. I added the naked mole- rat for her. 

Activity 3: How am I different?
I wanted her to think about how different she is from the others. She gave me quite a few physical difference about herself and others, However, I chose to focus on her personality rather than appearance and she could only come out with 2. 

Activity 4: Learning about acceptance.
The moral of the story is that family and real friends will accept you for who you are. Hence, I spent some time talking to her about how much we love her and about our  unconditional love. 

Activity 5: Learnt about the sequence of events. 
This is the first time I'm introducing the sequence of events to her. I printed out some of the main events of the story and got Faith to sequence them according. She has to narrate the story while pasting the pictures into the boxes. She seems to enjoy this activity a lot. 

Visual Learning 

This alphabet train corner is made up of materials that I previously made for my boy.

  1. Teach Your Child to Read Today!

    Reading is one of the most important skills one must master to succeed in life. It helps your child succeed in school, helps them build self-confidence, and helps to motivate your child. Being able to read will help your child learn more about the world, understand directions on signs and warnings on labels, allow them to discover reading as an entertainment, and help them gather information.

    Learning to read is very different from learning to speak, and it does not happen all at once. There is a steady progression in the development of reading ability over time. The best time for children to start learning to read is at a young age - even before they enter pre-school. Once a child is able to speak, they can begin developing basic reading skills. Very young children have a natural curiosity to learn about everything. They are naturally intrigued by the printed texts they see, and are eager to learn about the sounds made by those letters. You will likely notice that your young child likes to look at books and thoroughly enjoys being read to. They will even pretend to behave like a reader by holding books and pretend to read them.

    At what age can you start teaching a child to read? When they're babies? At 2 years old, 3, 4, or 5 years old, or wait until they're in school?

    If you delay your child's reading skill development until he or she enters school, you are putting your child at risk...

    Did you know that 67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level! According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, of those 67%, 33% read at just the BASIC level, and 34% CANNOT even achieve reading abilities of the lowest basic level!

    There is a super simple and extremely effective system that will even teach 2 and 3 year old children to read.

    This is a unique reading program developed by two amazing parents and reading teachers, Jim and Elena, who successfully taught their four children to read before turning 3 years old. The reading system they developed is so effective that by the time their daughter was just 4 years 2 months old, she was already reading at a grade 3 level. They have videos to prove it.

    Their reading system is called Children Learning Reading, and it is nothing like the infomercials you see on TV, showing babies appearing to read, but who have only learned to memorize a few word shapes. This is a program that will teach your child to effectively decode and read phonetically. It will give your child a big head start, and allow you to teach your child to read and help your child develop reading skills years ahead of similar aged children.

    This is not a quick fix solution where you put your child in front of the TV or computer for hours and hope that your child learns to "read"... somehow...

    This is a reading program that requires you, the parent, to be involved. But the results are absolutely amazing. Thousands of parents have used the Children Learning Reading program to successfully teach their children to read.

    All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes a day.
