WHY is this dot to dot preschool alphabet game important?
HOW is it helping your preschooler?
Fine motor games will increase strength for cutting, pencil grip, drawing, writing, and pasting later in life.
In Kindergarten, students will be asked to recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
SHOULD YOUR PRESCHOOLER MASTER THIS NOW?
Absolutely not. But it does mean that can begin to expose your preschooler now.
This activity took minutes to set up. Probably 3 minutes total if I set a timer.
- Tape down a large piece of paper. (Kraft or white)
- Begin to go in order A-Z with letters and dots.
That's all! Allow your preschooler to begin connecting the dots in alphabetic order. This is a great way to practice recognizing the letters of the alphabet!
