About the series:

The videos in this series consist of thematic, multisensory fun learning programmes for preschoolers. A learning through play approach.

The introduction is the same for each programme encouraging children to join in. They are presented by my ‘Jumbles’ toys, Lizzie Witch and Georgie Jumble.

There are NO super heroes. NO goodies and baddies. NO loud music or dramatic light effects!

Just good, calm, but fun thematic programmes which aims to motivate youngsters to be creative and to develop a lifetime love of learning. Art, craft, science, numbers and pre-reading skills.

Made initially for my own grandchildren I hope you will enjoy them too.

Letter recognition and pre-reading skills


Young  children are so ‘open’ to learning. They are creative, inquisitive and just love learning new things.  In the preschool days their learning is at a level they will never experience again as is their enthusiasm to learn. They are learning new concepts with every turn of their heads, to them learning  is play and learning through play is fun not just for them but for parents too.

There’s no need to buy expensive equipment. No need to enlist them in special playgroups.

Just a small amount of time spent making a few resources and playing together is sufficient. They will learn so much and will be content to play on their own afterwards.

Letter recognition is an important pre-reading skill and one that can be acquired through play. There are so many fun activities to help with this. The old traditional game ‘I Spy with my Little Eye’  remains one of the best and requires no preparation or resources. It is great on shopping trips and journeys and children love it!  With very young children beginning to learn sounds it is best to say ‘ ……something beginning with the sound ‘a’ or ‘d’ rather than the letter name.

The way the sound is said is very important. We tend to add an ‘rrr’ to our letter sounds which makes for confused soekking later. You know what I mean? We should say b.b.b.bor. baby but it sort of comes out like bur.bur.for baby! Cur.cur.cur for cat! Etc.. it’s a good idea to visit a good phonic site where you can practice the correct sounds. Here is one I recommend: 

Sound pronunciation

When my eldest was two I decorated the walls of her bedroom in lower case letters in pastel colours of paint.  I don’t remember how this started but I do remember that her bedtime routine, in addition to a story, was to recite the letters painted on the walls.  She refused to go to sleep till this had been done!  We started with just three letters and when she knew these a new one was added. I guess it’s not everyone’s idea of good decor although it did look pretty and was cheap.and easy too!
Other less permanent ways of learning letter sounds and names are explained on my video which you can find by following the link below:

I really hope you find the video useful.
Please take a look at the others in the same playlist.  They are all for parents of young  children.

Your children may enjoy the art and craft and science programmes. Everything is free.

Thanks for taking the time for reading this.
