Many children have problems learning the letters of the alphabet. Since letter recognition depends on understanding a sequence of features, the best way to teach children the sequence of features in making a letter is by guided practice. Because of this, we partake in a variety of letter “games” that encourage your child to recognize, enunciate, and match the concept of a letter to its print form. Young children learning letters need vivid, concrete language to understand the abstract component of the written word. For this activity, we practiced matching unicorn blocks of letters to letters written on a mat.
