Around the House 3-part cards freebie can help children learn initial sounds A to Z. It is easy to introduce initial sounds when children are familiar with people or objects. A is for Auntie! What is the first sound in your name? What sound does oven begin with?

Of course, the very young child will simply listen to what the adult is saying, and may not be able to read the letters at all. Picture recognition comes first, and later the letters of the alphabet might be pointed out. Children may be familiar with the word alarm, as in alarm clock and alarm system. They associate the sound with the electronic devices and may make the alarm sound when viewing the pictures. Have you seen a child hold up a pretend umbrella when the word umbrella is spoken or sung in a song? Children learn with all of their 5 senses, so they may demonstrate their learning in more than one way. It is always fun to see what they do and say!

Most houses might have a fan and or a flashlight. Children might blow to show they understand what a fan is, and click to turn on a pretend flashlight. The trick is to have the child repeat the first sound, and later even name the first letter.

Children who like to cook (or eat) will know an oven is hot and an oven mitt is used to remove baked food. Perhaps some of the cards could be printed just to be posted around the house near the actual objects, or a treasure hunt could be completed with the cards.
