What Is Letter Recognition?

Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters.
Kids who can identify the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too.
Using hands-on activities is an engaging way for pre-readers to practice learning the ABC’s!

If your pre-readers have just begun learning the names of the letters, start with a few capital or lowercase letter seeds. You can then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
When your kids know all of the letter names, they can practice saying the sound that each letter makes as they put the seed into the packet.
