I haven't posted school in a bit but, we are still working on it. Today we worked with flashcards. Flashcards are very easy to get. You can even pick up a pack for a buck at the dollar store.
There are many ways to utilize a box of flashcards.
1. Match uppercase with lowercase letters. Lay out all of one set of cards and then give out the other set. Cards don't need to be in order.
2. Next the cards were then put in order. This part always amuses me because he sings the alphabet song so many times.
3. Identify the items on the back. Some of the pictures are harder then others but, it helps him to form the picture and letter together.
I find it very helpful in him recognizing letters by several repetitive activities weekly. Reading, and writing need to be done several times a week. I especially see the retention when he's learning new words.
Teaching him and watching him learn warms my heart and I'm glad I can be a part of the process. I'm glad I can build the foundation.
