What we know:
Letters have names
Letters make sounds
Words have letters
There's a first sound to a word
Sometimes they make friends with other letters and create a new sound ("T and H in Theodotia. It's like magic!")
We are currently working on how to help our friends read what we write or build, so we are talking about things like words are read from left to right and each letter has a direction that it sits. These scrabble letters are a great tool and manipulative for us to use. Songs emerge as the children simple handle them. Names are a favorite to build.
