I’ve decided to take advantage of this interest and start doing some letter recognition games.
The first activity I did had to be a sensory box, because he loves sensory boxes! I put together a letter sensory tray using magnetic letters and cornmeal.
I started out by spreading the letters in the bottom of the tray.
I then topped them with cornmeal and made sure all the letters were hidden.
J went straight in and dug out the letters.
We then practiced saying the correct name for the letter as we placed them on the refrigerator.
This was a fun sensory and early literacy activity for J. Hopefully, he’ll learn a few more letters than just S and O!
How did you start teaching your child letter recognition? I’m always looking for new ideas!
I share even more fun stuff over there!
