HELPING KIDS LEARN THE ALPHABET TAKES TIME, REPETITION, AND VARIETY. YOUNG LEARNERS NEED PLENTY OF HANDS-ON OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE EACH LETTER.

Learning the alphabet means more than just identifying letters. It means discerning between uppercase and lowercase letters, learning correct letter formation, learning individual letter names, and learning individual letter sounds.

What Can Preschoolers Learn From Letter Recognition Worksheets?

LEARNING THE ALPHABET WITH YOUNG STUDENTS

LEARNING THE ALPHABET IS ULTIMATELY THE KEY TOWARDS FUTURE READING SUCCESS. AS KIDS GAIN CONFIDENCE AND STAMINA WITH LETTER NAMES AND SOUNDS, THEY BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND HOW THEY WILL BE ABLE TO BREAK THE CODE OF READING.

Use the free letter exploring worksheets as a starting point for opening up discussions like:

  • What are the letters in your name?
  • How many sounds do you have in your name?
  • What other words start with the /m/ sound?
  • Does letter M have curvy lines, straight lines, or both?
  • Does lowercase m look the same as uppercase M?

Why Is It Important For Kids To Complete Preschool and Kindergarten Letter Worksheets?

Besides the fact that kids love new and varied ways to practice the same skill, there are other reasons they should explore letter tracing worksheets and letter sounds 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.

Improve Understanding

As children learn to name 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!

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.

Confidence

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

Play a Game

Many of the pages in the Letter M packet can easily be converted into simple games where students get practice rolling dice, taking turns, and placing or moving objects onto a “gameboard.”
