Letter Factory - Page 2

post #21 of 26
That's awesome! I also heard about the Leapfrog series here. I'm sure Letter Factory helped my younger son learn letters and their sounds.

Thanks for the reminder. I've started playing this and Word Factory for my 4.5 year old. He's VERY into it and wanting to learn. What ELSE would be good for him at this stage?

He knows his letters, but he doesn't know the sounds for ALL of them (though Letter Factory is helping with that). He is also VERY interested in writing - he is always writing, copying things from soup cans and boxes, etc.!

Would love suggestions for him.

You could play games where he writes out any letters he likes, and you sound out the new "word". Also works great with the computer.

My 3 year old son loves this show! He watched it 3 times in a row and knew all the letter sounds and names! I couldn't believe it!

Yes, both of these were great for DS.  He was pretty much reading after Talking Words Factory, there was no stopping him.  That was a couple years ago.  Now he's reading everything, even the paper.

DD learned her letter sounds after watching it twice! No need for preschool now . I also purchased Talking Words Factory but haven't watched it yet. I wonder if that will help her learn that reading is just putting the sounds together.

Not to be a downer, but to all those getting ready to buy it, don't be disappointed if it doesn't work magic for your kids.  Everyone I hear says how they're children learned their letters after watching just 2 times or some other equally fantastic claim, but it never worked for my children.  It probably will work for most of you, but...anyway...just sayin'.
