Is your Pre-K student excited about the Pre-K Letter Recognition Worksheets that your school just provided? The goal of the sheet is to engage the child with the alphabet and then show them how to read and spell a letter. This will also get them to take this one small step closer to learning reading and spelling. Let’s help your child take this one little step closer to learning!
The first question you may have is, “Is this appropriate for my Pre-K student?” A few students are not adept at reading and writing letters. This is why we ask that they not be given these worksheets but rather to do the worksheet traditionally as is taught in public schools. We will not put much emphasis on spelling is not important. Most parents know that the younger kids get this to work well with the letters A, B, C, D, E, and F.
The worksheet is quite simple. They are to simply see how many times the alphabet is written, then to do the same with the symbols, and then to spell the letters. This allows them to view the letters and learn the alphabet. The basic forms are for the two hands only but if you are concerned about the other hand, the instructor can ask you to add a word or phrase onto the sheet to help them with the letter recognition.
In this class, you are going to want to be sure your child can do the worksheet and can use their hands. The child should also be able to handle a pencil and will not be able to complete the worksheet unless they can do so. However, I do not recommend having a sheet that is too difficult. The sheet should only be made up of letters and numbers and not other things such as musical notes, sports figures, animal names, etc.
The sheet is helpful for the Pre-K teachers to teach the letter recognition. Most children will quickly get the concept with a word or two but then you need to repeat it with a number or two. In this way, you are showing them the two hands, how to read the letters, how to read the symbol and how to spell. It is important to teach this process to all children in the first year of school.
If you are wondering what you will do to allow your child to share this sheet with their own teacher’s sheets then let them take turns completing it and using it. Allow them to take turns. Have one student be responsible for one sheet and then make sure the other student has a sheet of their own. Then have each child spend time on the sheet so that it does not seem like an “either-or” situation.
Also, make sure that your child is doing the sheet after dinner. It will get dirty easily and it is better to give it a good bath before you have to send it to your teacher. By doing this, you are creating a stronger bond between the teacher and the student that will last throughout the school year. Pre K Letter Recognition Worksheets makes a great gift for a parent’s birthday.
