Recognize Letters in Name
Children’s names are special to them and they quickly learn to recognize letters in their own names. What better way to learn capital letters than to use something as important as their own names!
Materials: Capital letters for child’s name Vocabulary: capital, first, beginning
Activity: (Ex. Child’s name is LIAM)
1. Give the L to your child. “This is L for Liam.”
2. Help the child say and trace the letter.
3. Repeat with the IAM.
4. Optional: Sing the “Alphabet Song” slowly. Have your child stand up when he hears the letters in his name.
Check for Understanding:
Do they know the names of the letters? Can they put them in the correct order to spell their name? Once they learn their first name, switch to their last name. Have them learn more letters by using other family members names- or even pets!
