Practice 's' 'a' 't' 'p' 'i' 'n' - Can your children repeat the sound when you say it to them?  Can they recognise the sound when you show them the letter? Can your child write these sounds? 

Practice this with your child.  They can use pens, pencils, chalks, felt pens.  You could use sand, flour, rice or shaving foam and ask your child to trace the letters.  Write the above letters on separate pieces of paper help your child to put the letters together to read some simple 2 or 3 letter words.
