The more you can have fun with alphabet games and activities, the more your child will find learning letters easy.
We've got some great free homeschool games
and preschool activities for you to try.
Come and join us for letters in the dark, make a play dough alphabet and try posting letters to your friends.
We'll have fun with music games
and make letters which smell good enough to eat.
You'll see in our page on preschool alphabet activities that we encourage you to have fun making letters from your fruit bowl.
This time we've added a homeschool variation. Why not make fruit letters which spell out action words - you'll soon see alphabet games that make your child hop, sing and jump!
The best free alphabet games are often ones where your child isn't sitting around too long - always hard even for the best-behaved preschool kids!
That's where music and rhyme comes in. You can try popular homeschool books like Chicka, Chicka, Boom with fun rhymes like:
A told B,
And B told C,
"I'll meet you at the top
Of the coconut tree."
The rhythm of the words is perfect to inspire a bit of homeschool dancing!
One Amazon reviewer described it as a "fun, feisty book", great for kids learning the alphabet.
Then there's animal alphabet songs which are even better if you make free homeschool musical instruments to go along with them.
After all that running around, we've got some great free kids letter printables for you.
We're hoping that by using Catherine's animal drawings you can make writing letters into more alphabet games.
The more you can find homeschool games which encourage multi-sensory learning and add the alphabet into everyday activities, the easier and more natural it will be for your child to learn letters.
Preschool sound puzzles
can help because they re-enforce the connection between letters and
what they mean.
One of the nicest games is to switch out the light and get the flashlight out.
Home school preschool crafts are a great way to help teach the alphabet.
It's easy to make sausages out of play dough and turn them into letter shapes; you can show your preschool child how to make them if they need help.
I don't think I've ever smelt a letter before!
Preschool art activities are a great way of encouraging kids to enjoy learning letters and get some practise with the hand strokes.
Letters are so exciting when they come through the mail, especially when you have preschool children.
One of the really fun, free alphabet games is to play posting mail.
We can also help you find out if phonics can help your child learn to read and give you some more fun reading activities!
We hope you have as much fun playing these preschool alphabet games and activities as we did.
