Please note there is a specific way to teach letters and sounds. You can listen to ‘Jolly Songs’ to help.
There are also, many children’s nursery rhymes, songs and poems that can be listened to which will encourage children to extend their vocabulary. Stories and sound books enrich communication, language and listening skills whilst providing children time to relax and enhance their imagination.
