Summer Letter Practice

Some of you have asked a good way to practice letters and sounds through the summer to keep the kids ready for Kindergarten. They LOVE Dream English songs and videos!! Below I have added a link to their website that gives you access to not only the songs we have been singing in class...but an individual letter song for each letter in the alphabet, along with printables and activities for each letter. It is a good resource to use that is FREE!!!
