Why Is It Important For Kids To Identify Letter Sounds?

Besides the fact that kids enjoy making silly sounds and rhymes, there are so many other reasons you should practice letter sounds with your child using the letter B preschool worksheets.

Visual Discrimination: Identifying letters (both lower and uppercase) encourages kids to use visual cues to discern between them. This is an important skill when later discerning letters to decode words.

Automaticity: The goal is for children to effortlessly recognize letter names and sounds interchangeably before they begin to put the pieces together to learn to read. If recalling sounds is too laborious, it will be difficult for a child to read with fluency.

Improve Understanding: As children learn to name uppercase and lower case letters and sounds, it helps them connect to what “reading” really means and gives them valuable insight and background to the idea that they, too, will soon learn to read!

Confidence: Kids learn with time and repetition to accurately name all of the letters and sounds. Imagine how proud they feel when they accomplish such a lofty goal!
