My 4 year old is a busy bee trying to recognize letter sounds consistently. At this age, I spend a bulk of my “school time” with him using hands-on activities with the occasional pencil activity thrown in there.
We are very loosely following Memoria Press’ Jr. Kindergarten curriculum. I’ve been very pleased with it, but the homeschool mama in me sees things that “must be added.”
I have done homeschool preschool for years and years, so it’s quite hard for me to go to a boxed curriculum. 🙂 I really appreciate the pick-up-and-go aspect to it when I get overwhelmed with my big kids’ school and just need to do the next thing with my 4 year old.
In that way, it’s very convenient!
The Jr. Kindergarten curriculum focuses on a particular letter of the week, and I enjoy this type of focus on phonics in the early years. I look for any opportunity to teach and reinforce phonics, and this set of alphabet posters are just right for doing just that.

Alphabet Beginning Sounds Posters
My son and I use one of these posters each week, and they coordinate to whichever letter is the main focus in school. Last week, we worked on the letter D, so we used the ‘Dogs dance in the dark’ poster.
He loves these!
We leave the poster on the white board all week and read it at least once each day during his school time.
I run my finger underneath each word as I read it, and he points out the letters as I call them out.
I ask these types of questions each day: Find all of the d’s in the sentence. Which one is a capital letter? Point to the period at the end of the sentence.
You can use these posters with any Letter of the Week curriculum, or just on their own.
If you have a child in Kindergarten or First Grade, these would make excellent copywork sentences. Many if not most of the posters use action verbs, so these provide a great opportunity to introduce verbs if your child is ready for that.
I am not one to rush grammar, however, some children are ready for more of a challenge!
This packet contains 26 colored posters, and the same 26 posters in black and white.
Just print whichever set your children would enjoy the most.
