Children don't only need to recognize and sound out letters, but they also need to learn to print the letters of the alphabet. You can do this on your own by just printing a sample of a letter and have your child copy it. However, some children need a little extra help in forming the letters and really benefit from tracing over letters several times before trying to do it without a template. Luckily, there are lots of resources online where you can print these letter tracing templates. If your child starts to get frustrated, then take a break. You want them to have fun learning and be supportive of the whole journey.
One component of learning letter recognition is identifying what shape a letter takes. Does it have rounded parts, like the letter "b"? Does it have a tall step, like the letter "h"? Does it go below the lines, like the letter "p"? These are all traits which are shared by various letters of the alphabet, and can be used to make generalizations. Once these traits have been identified by students in preschool, alphabet letters to trace help reinforce the concept.
You can buy blank puzzles that let you create anything you want on the pieces. They're also affordable so your kids can create new puzzles with every new spelling list. With one blank puzzle, kids can decorate their puzzles any way they want and then write their spelling words on the pieces. Once the puzzle's complete, kids can cut around each word to make their own unique puzzle or simply use the pre cut pieces to begin studying their spelling words right away.
