If you want to start preparing your child for preschool, kindergarten or even junior school, you need to find preschool worksheets that provide a variety of activities. Literacy, numeracy, reading, writing, drawing, social and natural sciences are some of the areas that children between the ages of 3 and 7 can and should start learning about. Look for variety in the worksheets, as repeating the same exercise over and over will bore your child. Lots of pictures, fun activities and clearly laid out worksheets are what you are looking for. If you're just looking for a few fun pages to keep the kids busy while you cook dinner, then many of the free printable worksheets available will be suitable.
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.
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.
