We will be looking at the letter Oo and Dd this month. See if you can find these letters around the house in magazines, books, newspapers and on cereal boxes. Keep reading to your child!! It can be the same book over and over. This is very important for their future reading skills. Keep practicing rhyming words and first letter sounds with your child when you are reading.
