Learning your letter sounds. This opens up a wealth of possibilities: being able to read a word and then a book. Or being able to write a word, then a sentence and eventually a story of one’s own. Our My Busy Bots bag uses bright, fun pictures to capture children’s imagination so they can identify the matching picture to each letter sound and pin a peg to it.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 4 - 6 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
