Letter of the Week
Letter flash cards, letter magnets, crayons, paper
A fun way to learn the alphabet is to focus on learning one new letter each week. You can use letter flash cards and letter magnets to reinforce the shape of the letter, and print a page that relates to the letter from the internet for your child to color each day. There are many sites available; it is easy to find seven different pictures for the letter you are working on (apple, alligator, etc.). And each day after your child colors he picture, he or she can put the picture on the refrigerator. A couple of times a day, point to the magnet or picture and ask your child what the letter is. If your child is correct, you can give your child a small reward, like one gummy bear or a star on a chart.
