Personalised Letters and Sounds Powerpoint

Personalised Letters and Sounds Powerpoint

I used this in Nursery and Reception. Each slide had pictures of a child with the same letter sound doing the letter sound action / holding the letter sound object. I used to sing the letter sound songs doing the action. I would have the slide show on and chn would sing their songs when they saw their sound. I also printed these off a4 and laminated for use in and outside. I printed it off a5 and put in a binder at all the writing areas so chn could flick through when writing their sounds.
