Letter Recognition

Letter knowledge—learning and understanding the alphabet—is one of the “big five skills” that lay a strong foundation for learning to read. Letter knowledge begins with letter recognition, and one of the most effective way to give kids a jump-start on this important pre-reading skill is through play.

Our Letter Recognition for Preschoolers activities provide a variety of hands-on activities designed to let kids play with the alphabet in a fun, low-pressure environment.
