Using Videos to Teach Letter Names and Sounds

Using Videos to Teach Letter Names and Sounds

The past couple of days we have looked at how using names of family members can help with learning the letters of the alphabet and how sesame_streetwww.starfall.com can help as well.  Another resource that I like to utilize is video.  My favorite website that incorporates video to teach letter names and sounds is www.sesamestreet.org.  I have found a great way to get a bunch of videos for the specific letter that you are focusing on with your child.  Using this resource will increase your child’s knowledge by 50%.

 

 

  1. First you need to open up the website, go to the search box.
  2. Type in the search box the letter that you would like videos and games for.  For example, if your child was working on the letter x, then you would type “letter x” and then push go.
  3. Look for playlists on the left hand side.
  4. Choose one of the playlists that has the letter you would like to work on.

 

Now, you are ready to sit back, watch, and learn.  All of the videos will play consecutively, along with the games.

  2. As a teacher and a college teacher for teaching candidates, I enjoyed stumbling across your post. I always get excited when I find new resources for myself or my teacher candidates. Thank you for sharing the information.

  3. Great resources and ideas! I have three kids: 6, almost-5, and almost-2 years old. The oldest is reading ahead of his grade level, and the middle is learning her letters. This will be a great addition for her and the youngest.

    Found you via UBC.

  4. My middle child Makenna who is almost 14, use to carry her Zoe all over the place. Sesame street was a staple when I was a little girl.
