Learning Stages

Letter recognition and familiarity with letter sounds are important skills that will help your child get ready for kindergarten.

Create “Letter Boxes” to help with letter sound skills. To make a letter box, draw a letter on the outside of a box and ask your child to help gather items with the same beginning sound. Make a list of the box’s contents, and draw pictures of each item. Spend a few days on each letter, and then use the lists and pictures to create an alphabet book.
