Tips for Teaching Letter M to Preschoolers & Kindergarteners
The letter M makes the /m/ sound as in: mom, map, and maze. It is formed by pressing your lips together and making the ‘mmm’ sound. Since M one of the few nasal sounds in the English language, it can be challenging for kids to differentiate between the other nasal sounds /n/ and /ng/.
One way to help kids remember the /m/ sound is to remind them that its the sound we make when we are enjoying tasting food. Mmm…these cookies taste delicious. Mmm…this is the best peach pie I’ve ever tasted. Mmm…chocolate cake is my favorite!
Another thing to keep in mind for younger children, is visual letter confusion OR letter reversal. This confusion is very common as kids are learning their alphabet, but with a little bit of practice, can easily be straightened out. The letter M can sometimes be confused with the letter N or W. (Try different strategies for learning letters and sounds to help with these common mixups.)
