Auditory Discrimination, Creativity
In the alliterative tradition of “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,” help your child to create sentences in which most of the words start with the same letter. For example:
Bob Bear bellowed, “Beware!” to Bonnie Bunny.
The silly snake slept soundly.
Don’t delivery dainty dogs to Doris.
Try to come up with a sentence that highlights each letter of the alphabet!
An anteater ate an apple at the Astrodome.
Big Ben bongs then breaks.
Can cats catch cows in cozy caves?
Don’t dive for dinner at dusk, David!
For an added challenge, repeat each sentence five times fast!
