Excellent information. I especially like the idea of teaching children to say the alphabet beginning at any spot and wrapping it around to the preceding letter. Valuable skill.

Great information and reminder on how to teach the letter sound without adding any accents and/or vowel sounds. As an ELL educator, we tend to over exaggerate sounds, so this was important to know. Awesome definition of the terms as well. Easy to follow and understand.
This was wonderful! I would love to see more webinars for Pre K early literacy.
