The best way to solidify learning experiences for young children is combining emotional charge, physical activity, and music like in the song, “Sliding Sound Out.”
For example, understanding how to sound out words becomes an entertaining joy ride by sliding 2 sounds together to make a word while sliding down a slide and singing a song. In episode 3 you’ll see Fletcher’s friends take the letter card with the letter “o” sound up the slide and saying that sound as they slide down the slide. Then they will seamlessly add the “n” sound from the letter card the parent is holding at the bottom of the slide. while singing the “Sliding Sound Out” song.
Another example of adding excitement and incentive to practice their new reading skills and use problem-solving is for kids to go on treasure hunts by finding and reading clue cards until they find a hidden treasure.
