My son can make the letter sounds when he sees the letters but he doesnt know what the letters are? If you tell him to write the letter R he will look at me like im stupid but if you tell him write the letter rrrrrrrrrr he writes it? whats up with that?

Try the LeapFrog product called fridge phonics.. It's this thing you put on the fridge that your child puts a letter into. It then sings " 'R' says 'rrrrrr'. 'R' says 'rrrrrr'. Every letter makes a sound 'R' says 'rrrrr'." For letters that have two sounds, it would go like this " 'A' says 'a' and 'A' says 'ahhh' every letter makes a sound. 'A' says 'a' and 'ahh'." You can pick one up at Target, Wal-mart, or even at
It worked great for my son and the other kids I watch. Good luck!!

Each child is different. He is using his phonetics that will help him to be a faster speller I would bet. He will learn the sight of letters as they are taught in school. I would just keep saying the sounds and he will be that much farther ahead.
