Reading with Elmo

The following video is of Elmo exploring his neighborhood and learning about print in his environment. As you take your child outside to enjoy the nice weather point out print in their environment. I'm always amazed by how quickly children learn to read stop signs and the signs to their favorite stores. As your pointing out print in their environment focus on beginning sounds to words and exaggerate the beginning sound. This will help your child begin to make sound symbol connections. What a fun way to work on beginning reading skills while enjoying the beautiful weather.
