Teaching The Alphabet | Letter Recognition Learning Activity
As preschool I think we share the same goal when it comes to teaching the alphabet. Letter recognition to be more specific! Our goal is to help our students be able to recognize the letters of the alphabet with ease. How you achieve that goal is different for so many teachers! I know for me I tend to follow the letter a week technique and it works perfectly for my group and classroom setting.
However I know that doesn’t work for every preschool teacher. Nonetheless we share the same goal, getting our kids to recognize the letters of the alphabet! Teaching the alphabet tends to be my favorite subject to tackle when it comes to creating learning activities and lessons. The possibility for activities are endless, and I love to keep my creative flow going when thviningkin of learning activities and hands on activities that help my students with letter recognition.
This week we are keeping to the fall theme, and working on these Pumpkin Alphabet Books! My plan is to do a book a day after quiet time, as a transitional activity for pickups at the end of the day. Ive also been encouraging my students to read the books at home with their parents. Which has been a huge success and the parents have enjoyed seeing the booklets come home with their little ones each day.
The Alphabet book has 3 pages, that include tracing, cutting, pasting, coloring, and a mini alphabet search. Each book focuses on a specific letter, which I find to be beneficial for kids when teaching letter recognition in a preschool setting.
If you have downloaded this book, I would love to hear how you’ve been using it. Also let me know your techniques on teaching the alphabet. Do you teach a letter a week? or a few letters each week? Id love to hear from you!
As always, Thank you and until next time keep teaching!
