Large dried white beans are inexpensive and can be easily written on. So collect some of them and write uppercase and lowercase letters on them. Then place each one in a container and ask your child to connect and put them together in order.

2- Writing letters on sticky sheets

Write each letter separately on the sticky sheets and stick it in the different corners of the house. This exercise can take many forms and your child will engage with it throughout the day. The order for children can be as follows:

Lowercase letters

Capital letters

The letters inside the name

Letters with smooth lines (H)

Letters with curved lines (c)

Letters with straight lines and curves (B)



For even more practice, you can connect lowercase letters or put uppercase letters together and ask him to help you with this.

Then ask your children to look for the letters in the rice lab and when they find them.

Arrange the letters in a large circle on the floor. You can also use magnetic letters and write them on the card. Then play the music. Ask the child to walk around the circle with the music.

For example, you can ask your child to give an example of an animal’s name, color, or anything else that begins with the particular letter in front of him or her.
