Learning letters is more than just being able to recognize them on a page and these playful activities are all fun ways to practice letter recognition. No matter your child’s ability you can use these activities for introducing or mastering letter recognition.
A great place to start with the letters in your child’s first name. While I taught uppercase letters first as a teacher I really feel like the best way to teach is to do upper and lowercase concurrently. Try your hardest not to quiz or drill your child for facts and instead make it fun and meaningful.

These are great ideas. Nice to have them all in one handy list! My son has known his letters for quite a while now, but now that he’s started sounding out words everywhere he sees them, I’ve noticed that there are a few that he doesn’t have quite as solidly as the others. I’ll see which of these games he enjoys.

Thanks for putting them all in one place! I’m working on this one with one of my daycare kids, so this’ll come in really handy.
Thanks for this – perfect timing as we’re just getting started on ABCs!
We have a variety of blocks – both wooden and cardboard blocks. My kids play with them all regularly. I should add letters (and maybe some multiplication facts for my older!) to them so they are getting the exposure every time they use them… great idea!
