Letter Recognition

Are you ready for your child/student to read? Start with letter recognition. Letter


recognition plays a huge role with your child's/student's reading. It is considered as pre-


reading.

Letter Recognition is the ability to identify uppercase and lowercase letters. Some may


argue what order letter recognition should be taught. The truth of the matter is, there is no


special order. As long as your child/student is doing enough hands on activities, he/she will


learn it. Depending on how the child grasps information, you can introduce up to three


letters(uppercase and lowercase) a week.

Set aside 15-20 minutes of your time for your child's/student's learning. It should be


around the same time so that it becomes a routine. You can start off with a short clip about


letters from YouTube. Jack Hartman's channel is one of my favorites. He incorporates movement


with learning. It also helps to get the child's wiggles out before starting on the activity. Inform


your child/student of the letter(s) that you are going over this week. To make sure your


child/student is engaged, ask questions like "Can you name an object that starts with this


letter?".


Below are some activities that will help your child/student with letter recognition and fine


motor skills
