Why Is Learning Letter Order Important?

Learning letter order is important because it is a skill that we often use throughout our lives from finding a book in a store or library, using the table of contents in a non-fiction book, and searching for a contact’s name on a phone.

Learning letter order also helps children with their spelling skills, word work, and more!

Next, your preschoolers will place the first letter on the card (the “K”) on the left-hand side of the cookie sheet.

After putting the letters on the cookie sheets, your pre-readers will sort through the cookie letters and find the one (the “L”) that goes in between the two letters. They will then place the letter on the cookie sheet.
