Letter Sounds

Dunagan has been working on his letter sounds lately, and I decided to make him a chart like Kirven's counting-by chart.  Now, he and I can both see which ones he knows and which he doesn't.  We were playing a magnetic fishing game for this work, but he really didn't like it, so he has been doing starfall.com instead.  I'm still going to have him do letter work with stories and drawings and verse writing in the coming months, but I'm going to use those blocks to reinforce and bring to life rather than introduce.  At the end of first grade, Kirven was still sketchy on letter sounds, so I am trying a different approach with Dunagan.
