How To Teach Letter Recognition Outside
Have fun letter hunting!
Sometimes you can find sticks in the right form. Compare to other letters.
1
Have your child trace the letter with their finger, then find sticks to form letter.
2
You can let them break sticks while practicing the letter and the sound it makes.
3
Use a straight edge to show how the top and bottom of letter align.
4
Here are some other letters we found.
When forming curves, leaf stems and weeds work well!
5
Teaching letters with lines that are diagonal, you can use words like middle to help with position.
6
More letters we found.
You can also play a "find the shapes hunt!"
Finding heart shapes is one of my favorites!
