Letter N

Letter Skills:  N

  • Say It:  N says “n” like nest
  • Play a Game:  Spread a sheet on the floor and scrunch up the ends to make it circular and with a raised edge like a bird’s nest.  Have toddler pretend to be baby bird.  When he says “n” sound he may get into the nest; have him “fly away” and then make him say “n” sound to get back to seat
