Letter Match can be a game in which your child need to match the uppercase letter to the suitable lowercase letter on a worksheet. Create a worksheet with two columns of letters. One column should have uppercase letters along with the second column should have all lowercase letters. Your child will use a crayon to draw a line from your "A" on the "a," etc. To make the worksheet additional fascinating and stimulating, draw pictures next to the letters of images that get started with that letter.
How can a parent start this process? As young as 12 to 18 months, a parent can point out letters seen in daily life while shopping and/or taking walks. Street signs, parking lot markers, store window displays, and library walls may good sources. Point to the letter with the sound it makes BEE, EF, ESS, and JAY are good examples. Buy a couple letter sets, both magnetic and sponge for games; a set of letter flashcards is essential and also some poster board and markers (probably the washable kind is best!)
As is, the sheets on this site are great for beginning letter and shape recognition. One component I believe to be missing from these tracing practice sheets, however, are the lines which mimic writing paper. Having those lines available is an important step toward appropriate letter size and formation when children are actually beginning to write and spell. To combat this, I have simply take a sheet of clear overhead transparency film and drawn the appropriate lines using permanent marker. This clear sheet is then laid over the tracing page.
