Want to teach your child to learn letters and numbers, or give him the tools to practice letter and number recognition and comprehension? Maybe you want to make sure his day includes a curriculum that includes learning the alphabet. Or maybe you’d like him to work on handwriting so he can write on his own.
Letters and Numbers helps you with this and much more. Like many parents, I bought physical workbooks to practice letters and numbers with all three of my boys to supplement what they’d been learning in school. Except I found the workbooks too distracting. I wanted to focus on the letters and numbers, not on illustrations or confusing dashes and lines.
I also wanted to keep working on a particular letter or number over and over. The workbooks I bought only had one or two pages of the same letter. We had a difficult time improving if we could only practice the same letter once or twice.
I decided to fix the problem by creating my own worksheets based on how children would best use them to master letters and numbers. This meant:
- Stripping away distractions and focusing on the letter or number.
- Making each row easy to understand by differentiating among the guides, the dashed lines, and the baseline.
- Offering three sizes of the same letter or number to accommodate different levels.
- Including guided and independent writing.
- Designing the worksheets for children to use and learn, not what we think workbooks for children should look like.
- Creating the workbook as a digital file so you can print and practice as often as your child needs.
"My kids are having a lot of fun with their letter practice! In our preschool homeschool, we start our day with these letter practice sheets. The sense of accomplishment sets them up to tackle the rest of our day's lesson plan with confidence! Even my 2-year-old loves getting in on the action, tracing inside the larger letter with his finger or a crayon." -Courtney S.
