After hearing several of my friends express their praise for the LeapFrog Fridge Phonics® Magnetic Set, we got a set. I have to add my praise as well. My children place letters in the base several times a day and sing along.
If you are unfamiliar with this set - when a letter is placed into the base, the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell" is sung stating the letter and the phonetic sound or sounds the letter makes. Using this as a cue, I have taken each letter and made a rhyme that coordinates with a Bible story. While these are no longer part of the ABCJesusLovesMe Curriculum, they are super fun and could be used in your home or classroom for further learning.
Unlike in the LeapFrog set, only the "short" vowel sounds are taught along with the "hard" consonant sounds. These rhymes can easily be sung "over" the LeapFrog set. The LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Lowercase Letters Expansion Pack is available for purchase.

ABCJesusLovesMe is an educational ministry that equips adults with the materials needed to be intentional in educating children. To do this, ABCJesusLovesMe designed five comprehensive, research-based curricula for ages 1-5 that focus on academics, development, and Bible learning through play. Additionally, a Sunday School curriculum, unit studies, digital downloads, and the Be Intentional Planner accompany the core curricula. These materials are sufficient on their own, but the heart of ABCJesusLovesMe is to offer guidance, support, and direction to make your educational efforts at home, preschool, or church successful.
