books for children for the letter f

One of the main reasons why we do a letter of the week style preschool at home is to encourage me to continue to read new books, do new activities, introduce new vocabulary. For our letter of the week, I will usually find a small stack of books and read them at breakfast time and try to emphasize the “Ff” at the beginning of words. We cycle through the small stack throughout the week during meal or other quiet times in the day. This is a fun way to read new books and reinforce some beginning sound phonics work.
