Fly Away with Sounds! Free Learning to Read Printable
I realize Big Brother is young and while I am not "pushing" him to read, I do try to encourage him! He does great memorizing sight words and knows his letters and sounds, yet he is still reluctant to go further than that.
I picked up a book at the library called: "Wow! I'm Reading: Fun Activities to Make Reading Happen" by Jill Frankel Hauser and tweaked one of the activities a bit to go along with our airplane theme during our row of "The Glorious Flight" (more on that in another post!).

I gave Big Brother a target sound to listen for and he was to put the Little People farmer (don't laugh, that's all I had in front of me at the time!) in in the right "seat"-- did the farmer sit in the front, middle, or at the back of the plane...
