Word Recognition

Once your child can recognize the letters of the alphabet, try out this activity that encourages simple word recognition.

Design and Create an Alphabet Journal

By the start of kindergarten, most kids are able to sing the "Alphabet Song." But reading, writing and understanding all those letters and their sounds? That takes more time, and practice makes perfect. Here's a journal activity that can help your child develop her alphabet understanding.

Alphabet Hunt

Ask a child if he wants to practice his alphabet and you'll likely get snubbed. But ask if he'd like to play letter detective? You just might hook yourself a fish.

Learn Your Letters with a Winter Alphabet Book

When it's snowing outside, A is for arctic, B is for brrr, and C is for cocoa! Craft a winter words alphabet book to celebrate the winter season with your child.

Trace Letters on Rice

Is your kindergartener eager to practice writing? Does he love to play with his food? Enjoy making designs in his mashed potatoes or carrot puree? Then he'll get a big kick out of working on his handwriting...using rice!

Play Beginning Sounds Clothespin Match-Up

Kindergarteners develop phonological awareness skills in a variety of ways, including lots of fun, hands-on games. Here's a fun way to get your child to listen to beginning alphabet sounds and match them with their letter symbols.

Crazy Eights With Word Families!
