In Preschool we work really hard on letter recognition and begging sounds, knowing the letters of the alphabet at preschool age is related to both short and long term reading proficiency. That is why we need to be giving children apple opportunities to experiment and practice using the alphabet.
Create a Letter and Word Center
By providing alphabet materials it increases children's opportunities to engage in alphabet learning. Include ABC Books, Magnetic Letters, Word Puzzles and ABC letter matching puzzles.
Small Group Activites
I feel that using hands on learning activities is the best way to teach my little ones these concepts. When they are provided with hands on activities they enjoy the learning process and build on these skills easier.
Clipping Beginning Sounds
Children use clothes pins to find the beginning sound on each beginning sound ring.
Beginning Sound Letter Match
Children use letter manipulative to match each beginning sound on the mat.
Beginning Sound Word Building
Children use letter manipulative to finish the beginning sound of each word.
Coloring Beginning Sounds
Children need to be provided with coloring activities to build on their pre-writing skills. These sheets can be used as a small group activity or taken home to build on the school to home learning. You could also use them at the end of a unit for review and assessment.
Cute and Paste Beginning Sounds
Children will work on their cutting, glue and sorting skills.
Children will be able to practice their beginning sounds with fun hands on learning activities. Students will be able to apply their knowledge for a deep understanding of letter sounds.
