Why is letter recognition important?

In order for your little one to become a good reader, they first need to master letter recognition (to name or pick out the correct letter in a group of letters). It’s an essential pre-reading skill.

You want your child to be able to recognize letters with automaticity (involuntarily). According to Edvocate, recognizing letters and their names through practice and play, can guide a child’s interest in learning letter sounds and in reading. So let’s get your child starting learning their letters now!

What’s the fastest way to teach letter recognition?

There are many different hands-on, engaging activities that you can do with your child to help them learn their letters.

However, repetition is the number one thing your child will need to learn their letters successfully.

Repeated exposure and  practice is key to how quickly your child will correctly recognize and name the letters of the alphabet.

This can be done with our NO PREP activity worksheets, games, songs, books, and sensory activities

Should I teach the letters in alphabetical order from A-Z?

There are many methods that use different letter sequences to teach letters and letter sounds. A systematic approach works best, but there is no “right” or “wrong” way to teach the alphabet. Showing your child the letters of the alphabet and having them practice their letters in any order is beneficial!

I like the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education’s Approach that uses the Orton-Gillingham method. This research-based method introduces the letters c, o, a, d, g, l, m, h, t first.

Introducing these letters first allows a child to form words for spelling and reading right away, which is such a confidence booster! We’re using this method with our oldest daughter and she’s doing a great job! 

PRO TIP: if your child is struggling or is reluctant to learn their letters, start with the letters of their name. Personalizing their learning experience often leads to more buy-in and enjoyment from your child.

There are 5 worksheets included in the Letter D Packet to get you started! All are NO PREP and do not require laminating or cutting. You can choose to laminate the worksheets or use sheet protectors with dry-erase markers if you’d like to reuse the activities and save printer ink and paper.

  1. Find and Color Letter D Identification Printable: This is a fun find and color activity! Your child will color or highlight all of the upper and lowercase letter D’s on the worksheet. Other upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet are mixed in with the letter D as well. This activity also introduces your child to the correct letter formations.
  1. Letter D Find Worksheet Version #1 Worksheet: Using two crayons or markers (or colored pencils, or glitter gel pens), your child will create and use a color code to identify and distinguish between the upper and lowercase individual letter D.
  1. Letter D Find Worksheet Version #2 Worksheet: In Version #2, your child will create and use a color code to identify and distinguish between the upper and lowercase individual letter D from other upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
  1. Letter D Cut and Paste Printable Version #1: Your little one will use scissors and glue to complete this activity. Your child will cut and paste each letter into the correct corresponding box. This activity helps to strengthen your little one’s fine motor skills, sorting skills, and visual discrimination skills (seeing letters written differently).
  1. Letter D Cut and Paste Printable Version #2: Your child will sort each letter into three categories: uppercase D, lowercase D, or Other. This activity will give your child extra sorting, cutting, and gluing practice.
