Alphabet Letter Hunt
Hide alphabet flashcards around the living room. Call out letters for your child to hunt for. If your child needs a little help, print out a second set of the flashcards. Hold up one letter at a time so your child has a visual reminder of what the letter looks like that they are searching for. You may extend this activity one step further by asking your child to say the sound that each letter makes when each letter is found. The simple book about lost alphabet blocks, “The Letters Are Lost" written by Lisa Campbell Ernst goes very well with this activity.
Alphabet Memory Game
You will need two sets of the alphabet flashcards. Choose 8 to 10 letters you would like your child to work on. Pull those cards out of each deck. Place the cards face down. Take turns turning over two cards at a time. If the two cards match, then pick them up. If they do not match, simply turn them back over. Continue in this manner until all of the cards of been paired up with the respective match.
Children love to arrange alphabet cards in order from A to Z. Simply ask your child to line up the flashcards in order from A to Z. Again, some children may need a visual reminder; therefore, you may need a second set of flashcards in order from A to Z. Children simply match up the letters in order from A to Z according to the example set before them.
Shaving Cream Writing
Squirt a small amount of shaving cream on a table surface for your child to use to practice writing her name or alphabet letters. Provide the flashcards as a visual cue if necessary.
Read and discuss various books that interest your child. Use the printable provided in the link above for your child to illustrate their favorite part of the story. Take a dictation from your child as to what their favorite part of the story was and why it was their favorite part.
