Along with flash cards, magnetic letters are fun and a great teaching tool. Simple words, with good clear sounds and lots of repetition once again, will help the child avoid frustration and keep interest. Once a young child has mastered a word with rhyming ability like "cat" then they will enjoy changing the first letter to sound out blending words such as "bat," "rat," and "fat" with emphasis on how the beginning letters of B, R and F are sounded out.
Write the alphabet all over the ball, writing each letter randomly and not all in order. Now stand across from your kids and bounce the ball to them. As you bounce the ball, call out one of the spelling words. Not only do they catch the ball, they then search for the letter on the alphabet ball and call it out while showing you the letter. If they get the letter right, they bounce the ball back to you and you say the next letter in the word after you find the letter on the ball, taking turns until the word is complete.
Knowledge, exposures and the experiences of the child in his early years influence how his brain develops. That's the reason why parents send their children to day care schools though others prefer pre schooling them at home which is more practical and cheaper. Either of the both can be a good start for a child to be nurtured and develop. In addition to their pre schooling they give their children a chance to explore the world of art and music. It has been observed that most children who learn music lessons such as piano, violin, guitar and even voice culturing proved to be smarter than those who didn't. Parents believe that if a child practices everything, he will be able to do many things when he grows up.
After being read to for a year or so, children will want and even pretend to be reading the words themselves. Usually they have picked up a word or two by memory, and it will be a good time to introduce flash cards. Preschoolers can handle about 3 flashcards at a time and once they have a good comprehension of those 3, then 2 more can be added. This method is called "chunking" and is very successful. Repetition is important, and testing the meaning of the word in conversation with the child.
