Today I started working with Jeremy on letter recognition. Here are a few projects I made to help him along.
First, is an incentive chart!
Colored Cardstock or Construction Paper
Using something circular (I used a circle cookie cutter but a drinking glass would also work) trace 26 circles onto different colored paper.
Cut them out and glue onto the posterboard in the form of a path. At regular intervals, glue a picture of a reward your child will get once they have mastered those letters!
Decorative Craft Scissors
With the index card laying vertically, write the uppercase letter on the top and the lowercase on the bottom. Cut the card in half using decorative craft scissors. Vary marker color and scissor pattern for each letter to make it more interesting.
Uppercase Matching or Memory Game
With the index card laying horizontally, write an uppercase letter on both the left and right side. Cut in half using regular scissors. Repeat for each letter. Now you can use them to play memory or you can keep one set and give the other set to your child. Then hold up a letter and see if they can find the matching letter in their set.
While I was making these, Jer decided that he wanted to make his own cards using the letter A. They're not bad considering he just learned to write it a few hours before!
