1.Textured Letters
Decorating a letter with bright colors can help your child to remember it.
Choose a letter. Draw it's shape on a piece of cardstock or cardboard. The larger the better.
Scrunch up some brightly colored tissue paper into small balls.
Cover one side of the cardstock with children's glue and stick on the tissue paper balls.
Let the card dry, then punch a hole in the top, thread it with a string and hang it in your child's bedroom.
Repeat with other letters using a variety of materials for decoration. Make a color collage from magazine pictures,
or use shiny tin foil, newspaper or cotton balls.

2.Spot the letter

Choose a "letter of the day" and draw it on a piece of paper for your child to see and hold.
During the day, point out that letter every time you see it: on car license plates, doors, buses, shops, gas stations,
labels and so on.
