Dd is for Dots

Dd is for dots on a Dalmation dog!
Have you seen the do-a-dot markers?  They're similar to bingo markers, except washable and in every color of the rainbow.  We love them!  They're perfect for projects like this:
The kiddos sounded out Dd, traced it with their finger, and used the black dot marker to place dots on D and the dog.  Some kids even counted the dots - so they got a literacy and math lesson.  Score!
At this point, your child knows the American Sign Language symbols for letters Aa through Dd.  If you'd like to reinforce this with your child, you can find a chart here.  When we make a specific letter sign, we also say its sound at the same time.
Next up...Ee!
