As little ones become more familiar with letters and their sounds and their shapes, encourage them to practice and learn with this simple activity that will help their literacy, writing and sounds...as well as giving them a great sense of achievement.
Take a note book and on each page write a letter, starting from letter 'a' on page one to letter 'z' on page 26 so you end up with a book that runs the whole alphabet from a-z. Use lower case letters. If your child is able to write letters themselves, get them to write the letters.
Gather magazines, brochures, family photos, spare stickers anything with pictures on them. Decide on which page each picture should go on. For example, a picture of apples on the 'a' page, bananas on the 'b' page. Fill up the whole book.
Use the book to practice sounds and to look through together naming all the objects in the pictures.
