As the parent of a preschooler, you should make alphabet lessons an important part of your daily routine. Waiting until your child starts preschool or kindergarten to begin work on the alphabet will put your child behind in the literacy race while teaching your preschooler the alphabet can make them a sure winner. Teaching the alphabet letters does not need to be arduous or complicated and certainly does not require special tools. One of the simplest way to teach your child the alphabet is by using food. After all, your child needs to eat.
When you are with your toddler or preschool child, point out words that are around you in your environment, like on signs, cereal boxes, clothes, or anything with words. Point to the first letter and tell your child the name of the letter. Have your child repeat the letter back to you. After pointing out the letter a few times to your child, have the child find the letter somewhere and point it out to you. Make it a game and make a fuss over the child every time he/she finds the letter. You can even have letter theme days with your kids. The whole day can be focused on a letter and have fun coming up with ideas for each letter.
There are many free worksheets available, especially online, but still the best worksheet is one that you personally draft. This way, you are able to match the level of difficulty of the activity in accordance to the performance level of your own students. It is not bad to reuse worksheets for another batch of students, but once in a while it is also better to vary the activities you give to kids. Worksheets can be made for fun if it is attuned to the current interests of kids. The kids will respond better to activities close to their own interests.
