Letter recognition

19 Mar

The Limpet has suddenly become interested in letter and spots certain letters everywhere. She is only 2 1/2 so I’m certainly not putting any pressure on her to learn things like this just yet but I’m happy to encourage any current phases that she’s going through. The main letter she likes to spot is ‘E’ as this is the first letter of her name. So for this activity I searched through our junk mail to find as many upper and lower case ‘E’s as I could. I then cut a large E out of sugar paper for her to stick all her letters on.
Older children could find and cut out their own letters but my daughter hasn’t mastered how to use scissors yet.
While doing the sticking I took the opportunity to discuss other things that start with the letter E.

    I love this! It’s so fun when they start noticing those letters everywhere! My 3 (almost 4) year old still calls the letter L “His letter” and the letter “T” is his brother’s letter!
