Brightly Beaming Steps to Reading Program
Preparatory Curriculum
Adaptable for Ages 2 - 4
by Katrina Lybbert


At this level we are going to work on teaching our children to recognize the letters.  We will start with the capital letters.  The lower case letters will be introduced in the Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum.

Introduce the letter with a printout of the week's capital letter your child can color.  You can use the Letter coloring pages from the Preschool Coloring Book page.  I will be adding my own printouts to the Brightly Beaming site in the future.

Post the new letter on your learning poster.  You can also designate a wall space in your home to fill up with the letters as they are learned.

You can teach your child to trace the shape of the letter using their finger.  You can trace in pudding, finger paint, a shallow tray (cookie sheet) filled with rice or beans, etc.

Point out the letter of the week in signs, on cereal boxes, and other places your child sees print.  Review all letters learned often.
