Beginning Reading Help
There are several great ways to begin teaching your child his alphabet long before he starts school. Playing with the sounds of letters and words and having fun with language will help your child begin learning to read before he ever steps foot into a classroom!
A few of these activities are as follows:
Letter practice: Have your child use his finger to trace each letter of the alphabet while saying the name of the letter and the sound the letter makes. You can do this by using alphabet flashcards, pieces of paper with letters written on them or a sandbox. The combination of sight, touch and speech used in this activity can have a powerful effect on your child’s ability to understand.
