The Library's Early Literacy Program

For Preschoolers

I Spy with Sounds

Sing & Rhyme Play with sounds, songs and rhymes.


I Spy with Sounds

Put a new spin on a fun game: I Spy! Give a clue with the beginning sound of an item: "I spy something that starts with the 'buh' (B) sound." Start out easy by only using a few sounds (like B, M and S). You can add to them as your child learns more sounds. A game is a fun way to play with letter sounds!


The Fly and the Flea

A flea and a fly in a flue,
Were trapped - so what could they do?
Said the flea, “Let us fly.”
Said the fly, “Let us flee.”
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
