What's important for parents to recognize is the importance of reading. Without this basic skill, there are huge obstacles and limitations that threaten the success of any child. And, as we are not all teaching professionals, we may be limited to our teaching skills. Therefore, we as parents, trying to guide our children properly through life, should be using the various tools that can and will improves on the life of the child.
Make signs with a large capital first letter and smaller case following and post them around the home; Bathroom, Refrigerator, Door, Mirror, Dog's bed, Cat toy, etc. Ask the child every time you pass a sign, "what does that say?" until they are 100% correct. Play games with letters, putting the word of the day on the refrigerator door with magnetic ones, and playing and arranging letters on a table. Write or trace the letters on paper and then have the child think of as many words as he can that have that sound. Play games about animals, food or flowers; asking how many the child can think of that start with a certain letter. Rhyming word games are great learning tools.
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.
