    I like the idea of C as a thief letter. How do you explain what a vowel is? In trying to teach my preschool group about the letter Ii I told them it’s an important letter and appears inside lots of words like other vowels do. Oops. Blank stares. All I could come up with is that we can make vowel sounds inside our open mouths without having to use our tongue, teeth or lips. There’s got to be a better explanation!

    I like your open mouth description of vowels. It’s preschool. That’s all they need to know in my opinion. Preschool is for introducing letters and their sounds and that they can be put together to make words and names. But mostly preschool is about starting sounds. It’s nice for them to know that there are vowels and consonants. I focus on recognizing the letters, knowing the sounds, spelling their names and three-letter sight words for preschool.
