Alphabet Airplane Banner

I wanted to have a simple alphabet to hang in our playroom for the summer. As I was searching on-line I found this cute 'Alphabet Airplane Banner' that I thought was both cute and functional.

My son already knew all the letter names and most of the sounds but I thought the extra review would be good before kindergarten started. To make it meaningful for him, I asked if he would teach his little sister the names of each of the letters.

He LOVES being the teacher. As they reviewed each letter we traced it in marker, doing a few letters each day. Now she goes and pretends to read the letter names and points & sings the ABC song! She is definitely getting the concept that print goes from left to right and that each letter has it's own name. I think she may have even been teaching her 'kitty' the alphabet the other morning~~
