Can you name 10 Ways to Build Preschool Letters?
Letter recognition is fun right now because we are making it all hands-on. We’re spending a lot of time creating letters, forming letters, shaping letters, and spotting letters!
I hope you will capture every opportunity to love teaching your little ones – through the mess and even the repetition. Oh the repetition!! Friend, it goes by too fast!
A loving suggestion, do not make it a big deal if the letters are backwards. Just sweetly change them to the correct position with positive words, “remember B faces this way”. Much nicer than barking, “how many times do I have to tell you B goes this way”. Let’s inspire an appetite for learning not stomp & spit all over it.
