We move through the alphabet very quickly since many students come in and already know the letters. We then make a list of words that begin with the letter/sound and sing a song that emphasizes the sound.
I think this would be very beneficial for those who don't though. Horses eat hay but you put straw in their stall for them to stand on... The part of this video I really like is selecting a book that focuses on the letter you're teaching and pointing out words throughout the story that begins with that sound.
I thought I would share with you a few scarecrow activities and projects.

Hay is food and straw is bedding) I thought it was a great video. I am an adult education teacher but I'm struggling with my own Kindergartener at home. I also enjoyed how the teacher used the literature to segue into a fun craft that also reinforces the sound.
Consistent practice and repetition I believe really helps the child to learn!
