Splashing Through the Alphabet: Water and Letters
  • Kendra Hadnott says:
    The way that letters morph in this video make it easy for children to memorize the way that letters look. Enforce this lesson even more by having children incorporate water. Ask the children to put the water inside of letter molds and watch the way that the water conforms to the mold.
  • Kendra Hadnott says:
    I really love that this book isn't a one-trick pony. The combination of the underwater facts and letters of the alphabet make it a great choice for both the younger and mature reader.
