If you are trying to teach your young child the letters of the alphabet or letter sounds, then this one is for you! Pick a letter to focus on all day long and find that letter wherever you go throughout the day.
For added recognition, an adult can write the letter of the day on the childs hand so that the letter is facing him/her. If you don’t want to write on your childs hand directly than you could purchase blank stickers and stick it to the childs hand after writing the letter on it. Either way you go keep trying to find that letter all day long.
In the morning repeatedly bring attention to the letter name as well as its sound and give examples of words with that sound. In the afternoon ask your child questions such as:
What is our letter today?
What sound does the letter make?
What word begins with that letter?
Possible lessons for the more advanced child:
What words end with that sound?
What words have that sound in the body of the word?
No matter what level your child is, this in a great way to introduce or reinforce letter recognition/phonics to your child in an enjoyable way.
Please share with us what works well for your child.
