An A to Z box is great kit to create to practice learning letter names and sounds. As kids hold each item (for each letter or sound), they have a physical and sensory (in come cases!) experience to help solidify the letter sounds and names. Plus, what could be better than handling little toys to play with the alphabet? Our alphabet box is a fun way to practice recognizing and sorting letters in a hands-on way.
I don’t do a letter of the day or letter of the week program with my preschool, but so many people like to focus their learning themes around letters of the alphabet. Here are some of the fun alphabet activities and crafts we have done (and plan to do) here on Line upon Line Learning. More will come, as my youngest is now a toddler and soon to be a preschooler. I expect we’ll be doing preschool alphabet activities and alphabet crafts for a long time yet to come!
It’s so much fun to incorporate alphabet learning activities into our every day reading and activities. Every day items and even garbage materials can easily be re-purposed into engaging hands on activities for my toddler and preschooler! Alphabet learning is the most important pre-literacy skill to introduce to them.
