Letter of the Week: V

V is for volcano.
After reviewing the letters A - U, introduce your child to the letter V by using painter's tape to create a large V on the floor. Show your child that the uppercase and lowercase V are the same, except the latter is smaller. Then say, "V says vvvvvv!" Brainstorm words that have the V sound, being sure to end with "vehicles." Then show your child how to use the painter's tape V as a road for toy vehicles. Encourage your child to make her own painter's tape Vs to create intersecting roads. Ask: "Can you make a letter V with your vehicles?" When your child is ready to move on, choose one or more of the crafts, activities, or videos, below.
