How To Use The Bird Letter Recognition Activity:

To begin using this alphabet activity, your preschoolers will select a cracker and identify the letter on it as they feed it to the bird. 

If your kids are just starting to learn the names of the letters, start with just a few crackers. You can then add a couple more every time they play.

Learning the ABC's

When your kids know all of the letter names, they can say the sound that each letter makes as they feed the cracker to the bird. It’s easy to differentiate this activity for your kids!

This type of activity is so much fun. We do a "Who's Bird Can Eat the Fastest or the most". I use a timer--who can eat the most in 1 min, etc.
