Just because your child can sing their ABC’s does not mean that they know their letters. It means that they have memorized a song. To help them become more familiar with the letters they will start seeing every day in the classroom, try this little exercise.

  • Write each letter on an index card
  • Mix them up on the floor
  • See if your child can arrange them from A-Z

You can help them by putting out every fourth letter and encouraging them to fill in the blanks. With repetition they will soon become familiar with the order. Keep in mind that by age 4 most preschools expect a child to recognize their name, and will encourage them to start writing it. Make this a fun activity by writing it in chalk on the sidewalk or with a stick in the sand. Check out our post on setting the stage. Leave us your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
