Let’s make words! After the kids have learned the alphabets their next lesson is using these alphabets and their sounds together to make words. For this, the kid must have a strong understanding of the alphabets and their sounds so that they can understand how they work together with each other.
Let’s make this less easy for the kids.
We need to learn how to put sounds in order to make meaningful words from them. Every word that you hear can be written down and to write these words we need the letters from the alphabets. Letters can arrange themselves in different orders to make meaningful words just like dog, cat, apple etc.
It is the ordering of alphabets that matters and how their sounds work together. Hence to master the art of word making you will need to do a lot of practice with the kid. The more words the kid makes the more he/she will be able to understand. And as they say, practice makes a man perfect.
CAT is a word because the ordering of the alphabets make sense. If you put the same alphabets in a different order, for example, ATC, then they don’t make any sense or a meaningful word. Hence the ordering of alphabets is very important.
You can use different word books and then practice them with your kid. Try to use new words but don’t overwhelm the child. Let the child learn with their own speed. Use books with animations so that the kid also knows the exact meaning of the word that he/she is learning.
The more the animations and relation of words with the animations the better will be their understanding and soon they will be able to make up words very easily.
