Invite children to color the page. Can they name each letter and say the sound it represents?  

Here are more ways to prepare children for literacy learning in kindergarten: 

  • Notice letters all around you in the world, and go on “letter hunts” (look at signs when you’re out and about: “Can you find the letter A?”).
  • Help children practice writing their first names (in all uppercase letters or in a combination of upper and lowercase). 
  • Help children practice holding a pencil or crayon with their thumb and finger supporting the tip.  
  • Keep sharing lots of books and stories!
