Your child will move letters around to make words and read the words.
Before the activity, write these letters on individual sticky notes: A, O, C, M, P, and T.
Start by explaining the activity to your child: “Today you will read a word made with three letters. Then you’ll change one letter to make a new word. I’ll show you how to do it.”
Using the sticky notes, make the word MAP in front of your child so that they can read it from left to right. “Read the word with me.” Blend the letter sounds together as you sweep your finger under them from left to right: “MAP.”
“Now I’m going to change the P to T.” Remove the letter P and replace it with the letter T. “What word do we have now?” Blend the sounds as you sweep your finger under the letters: “MAT.”
“Let’s see how many words you can make!” Have your child read each word they create.
