I cannot believe I haven’t told you all about the Leap Frog Letter Factory! If you have heard about it, watched, it, etc you know what I am talking about. I discovered the LeapFrog Letter Factory on the Internet last year by chance. Well, by chance after showing the DVD to my students they all began to know their letter sounds….almost immediately. At Writing when I would say /mmmm/ they knew “hey the mmm mmm mmm… is M!” It was so fun & exciting to see how quickly it worked. I didn’t discover the DVD and song until around Christmas last year. So, this year I started the year off using the Letter Factory….and wouldn’t you know my kiddos are already matching letter sounds with their letters. When assessing letters for the second time this year…some were unsure of the letter name but could state almost all of the letter sounds from watching the letter factory! Anyway…below is the short little song that is at the end of the DVD …we watch the song everyday during letter & word work time. I have little actions that we do for each letter. During writing you will see me doing these same actions when helping the students find the correct letter name/sound.
I am no way affiliated with Leap Frog even though I sure wish I was!! I purchased last year Letter Factory, Talking Words, Word Caper, & Get Ready for School….tonight I just purchased the rest of the DVDs they sell for both phonics & math. I can not wait!! 🙂 Below is the picture of the DVD cover to the Letter Factory…also if you click the picture you will taken to their site.
