The CELL Practice Guide for October, Alpha Fun, focuses on how parents can help their preschooler recognize and identify letters. By interacting with your child while playing with letter blocks, magnetic letters, and alphabet puzzles, you will make letter learning fun and exciting. Alphabet toys also help preschoolers begin to form words without the added pressure of writing. As your child lines up magnetic letters on the refrigerator door, stacks alphabet blocks, or strings alphabet beads, talk with your child about what he/she is doing and encourage his/her interest and curiosity about letter sounds.
