Letter Recognition – As your child learns sounds, they will also learn to recognize the letters of the alphabet. A great way to teach this is with a printable worksheet that shows the letter, a picture, and the ’name’ of the letter – like Annie Apple!
Future Use of Color – Other than making sure your socks match, we use color in ways that we, as adults, are often not aware of. Obviously, there are traffic lights that require us to know our colors, and road signs are differentiated by their color too. Reading a map, even on a GPS, relies on color recognition to identify certain features. Color also influences the way we behave, our moods, and how we react to other people.
Play sound games – A ’Sound Treasure Hunt’ will have your child gathering items around the house all starting with the same letter – and of course, there has to be some ’treasure’ at the end of the game, so be prepared! ’I spy with my little eye’ is another great game if you use sounds instead of the names of letters, and it can be played anywhere.
Before creating the worksheet for children, it is important to understand why the worksheet is being made. Is there a message to be conveyed? Can students record information that can be understood later? Is it being created to just teach a basic concept to little children? A well designed worksheet will make its objective clear. The different aspects that should influence the design of the worksheet are the age, ability, and motivation of the students.
Using pictures – While your child is still learning to recognize the letters of the alphabet, you can use pictures (or the actual item) to help them practice their sounds. Find pictures of a bird, a ball, a bat, a bath, a book, and so forth to practice the letter ’B. Choose a letter for the day and encourage your child to find items that start with that letter around the house. Printable worksheets should have nice exercises for this as well.
Read, read and read some more – You don’t need worksheets for this one either, but you may want to join the local library rather than spend a fortune on books that your child outgrows as quickly as they outgrow their clothes! The more you read to your child, with your child, and in front of your child, the quicker they will learn to read, and learn how to enjoy it too.
