Help develop phonemic awareness and letter recognition with these alphabet cards.
Instruction in letter recognition, practice in printing the letters of the alphabet (both uppercase and lowercase), and exposure to letters in print are all essential practices when teaching letter identification. It is important to assess students to see which letters they can name and write, and to determine their rate of fluency with letter naming.
Some educators believe that letters should be introduced by phonetic sounds rather than letter names. Other educators believe that letter names should be taught first.
Letter-sound knowledge and letter identification are both reading readiness skills that are crucial in learning to read and write.
