It’s Wednesday, and here at Preschool Ponderings, that means time to focus on the standards.  Every Wednesday I choose an Early Learning Standard and share a number of activities that can be aligned with that particular standard.  Remember, the Standards that I use every day, and am most comfortable with are Ohio’s Early Learning Development Standards – you can review them here, however I’ve found that even if your State’s standards differ, many of these activities can still be aligned similarly. I’ve rounded up some great ideas today!

Domain: Language and Literacy
Strand: Reading
Topic: Letter and Word recognition

This standard is the one most people think of when they consider language and literacy development in preschool.  It covers a number of different concepts, including recognizing environmental print, recognizing letters, and recognizing the sounds associated with each letter.

Here are some activities that will build understanding of letter and word recognition:

Make a letter with letters, The point to each little letter and make the letter sound each time

You can find more great letter recognition ideas on my Preschool Language Arts pin board!
