I have three young kiddos close in age – like 30 months between all of them close. This makes homeschooling a bit tricky on occasion. My oldest of the three has struggled with learning letter sounds and remembering them, while the younger two seem to pick it up fairly quickly. So this year, I decided that we needed to do more hands-on learning and be really pro-active in our letters and sounds to see if we could get that light bulb to turn on in his little mind.
