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!)
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.
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.
