After being read to for a year or so, children will want and even pretend to be reading the words themselves. Usually they have picked up a word or two by memory, and it will be a good time to introduce flash cards. Preschoolers can handle about 3 flashcards at a time and once they have a good comprehension of those 3, then 2 more can be added. This method is called "chunking" and is very successful. Repetition is important, and testing the meaning of the word in conversation with the child.
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.
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.
