I knew there was something missing — forgot to post this photo in yesterday’s Wee Society giveaway post. This is what the back of the Wee Alpha postcards look like. As you can see, they make learning the alphabet and letter-sound correspondence incredibly fun. Not to mention the dose of rich, descriptive language each postcard offers as well as an enjoyable writing experience.
Little ones who are learning their alphabet aren’t necessarily going to be able to read the postcards on their own, but it’s a great joint writing experience with their parents. Parents can read the postcards aloud, kids can dictate what they want written and even them just watching their response being written down is a valuable lesson. Kids need countless experiences and interactions with text and writing, even if they’re just observing and not actively performing the task themselves, in order to learn how to read. Just one way to promote literacy, and a pretty terrific one at that. 😉
