Alphabet Hunt

When you teach your child the alphabet always remember to make it fun! Teaching the alphabet to your child is the first step to reading and will give your child a positive attitude towards engaging with books and print in the years to come. This is a fun activity that I call "Letter Hunt." Give your child a page with the letters of the alphabet on it(printed or hand written):

  • lower case letters only

  • upper case letters only

  • combination of lower/upper case letters (once confident with letter recognition)

Using a magazine your child can search through the pages looking for letters they recognise, cut them out and paste them on top of the letter on their sheet. This is a fun activity to sit down and do with your child or to set as an independent activity if they are confident with scissor use.
