Starting Points and Letter Identification
When playing a game, create a visual starting point for your preschooler.
WHY? A starting point allows your preschooler to understand where the game begins. The visual also allows practice with following directions and understanding organized play.
Here is an old, red envelope that I taped to the floor. This allowed Grey to set his feet (yes, only one sock!) to begin and he also knew where to return.
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
The Letter Identification Game can be played in TWO ways.
Begin by arranging letters (written on construction paper) on the ground .
Have your preschooler throw an object to land on a letter. When the object lands, call out which letter it landed on.
Have your preschooler return to the starting point.
We continued to play by "mowing" over the letter chosen.
I think we both had more fun with this round!
