Preschool Letter Activities: 3 Ways to Teach the Alphabet

Preschool Letter Activities: 3 Ways to Teach the Alphabet

Ever wondered how to teach the alphabet? First, it should be a fun and experience for both the student and the teacher. Why should it be fun?  It allows your child to be more receptive to learning and to enjoy the process of learning. When I taught Jael her alphabet, we did so many preschool letter activities with one goal in mind. That goal was to  ENSURE THAT ITS FUN FOR HER. Caleb (my son) is about to start his pre-preschool journey (is that a thing?) and so he will be learning his letters as well fairly soon. Today I will share with you 3 of the activities that I have done with Jael to help her learn the alphabet.

Working on those preschool letters? Here are just 3 methods you can use to teach the alphabet to your kids

3 WAYS TO TEACH THE ALPHABET TO YOUR PRESCHOOLER

1) Purchase Leap Frog Letter Factory

Please note that affiliate links are used below for your convenience.

I have a confession to make. I was never the one to initiate Jael’s alphabet knowledge. We were walking in a supermarket when she was younger and she simply pointed out the letter O. Obviously, I thought this was a fluke and simply nodded. Jael however, continued to point out other letters and then I realized, “Boy do I have my hands full”.

Our go-to activity for exposure to the alphabet (short of sticking up a chart in their room and singing the alphabet song) is Leap Frog Letter Factory.

Once she was singing the letters, we bought the Leap Frog Letter Factory Phonics Game (below on the right). Actually, Caleb enjoys playing with this one and he is obsessed with the letter O.

2) Preschool Letter Worksheets

Okay before you jump down my throat about worksheets and early childhood let me say this: My kid loves worksheets. Secondly, our worksheets consist of hands-on activities such as playdough mats and dot pages as J loves dot markers.

3) Create a few preschool letter activities

Ever thought a sensory bin could help your child learned the letters of the alphabet? Or wondered just how to use those magnetic letters that you may have stepped on one too many times? Well, they are a huge help in our house. Below you will find just a few of our preschool letter activities.

Alisha, I have enjoyed visiting you sight today. I love your 3 ways to teach the alphabet. The number one is my favorite I used it on my kids when it first came out on VHS. Later when I began working as an education parapro teaching reading I Let the Kindergarten teachers borrow my copy. They used it for several years and I have taught my 3 Grandsons to read with The help of The Letter Factory . So when I read your post you hit a tender spot in my heart. Leap Frog has great products. My grand sons were tested for kinder and passed with flying colors. I really like your Ideas and your print outs are very nice. Thank You for sharing.
