Learning About The Alphabet:

LETTER AND SOUND RECOGNITION WITH PRESCHOOLERS

LETTER RECOGNITION IS AN IMPORTANT FOUNDATIONAL SKILL. STUDENTS THAT ARE FLUENT IN NAMING LETTERS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL WITH THE NEXT STEPS IN LEARNING HOW TO READ.

Naming letters, matching uppercase and lowercase letters, and learning letter sounds are important foundational reading skills! They provide valuable background knowledge for eventually blending sounds into words.

Patience and repetition are key! Just because your plan is to focus on a letter a week/month/whatever, does not mean all students will remember those letters!

Give your students plenty of opportunities to explore letters throughout the entire school year. When students stay engaged, they are more likely to learn the letters and begin to demonstrate fluency.

These mini alphabet books are a great way to introduce each letter of the alphabet!

Each mini-book includes:

  • Five beginning sound pictures
  • Five words to match the pictures
  • Uppercase/lowercase letter search grid
  • List of words and pictures for “reading” practice
