Here is the order for teaching letter recognition:
- s, a, t, i, p, n
- c, k, e, h, r
- m, d, g, o
- l, f, b, q, u
- j, z, w
- v, y, x
I have coloring sheets full of color by letters for each and every set! They are now complete (see links at the bottom of this post!)
Coloring Pages: Set 1
These are the color by letter worksheet coloring pages for the very first set of letters: s, a, t, i, p, n
Within this color by letter worksheet bundle you will find coloring pages for lowercase letters:
(printable available at bottom of post; these are just pictures to show you what is in your free bundle!)
You will find an adorable sloth, alpaca, turtle, iguana, penguin, and narwhal all cute as can be and filled with the lowercase letters s, a, t, i, p, n
Your child can color by letter through these coloring pages for as many as he needs before he is able to recognize all of those lowercase letters.
As you go through these coloring pages, point to each letter with your child and say both the letter name and the sounds. Think of words together that start with all of the sounds. Play and have fun! And make sure you go nice and slow.
Once your little one can recognize the lowercase letters, you are set to print off the uppercase color by letter worksheets:
Perhaps your child colored the sloth and alpaca coloring pages and now really understands and recognizes the lowercase letters for s, a, t, i, p, n. You may now wish to print off the next coloring page in the capital version: S, A, T, I, P, N
Play and have fun with this version as well! Make connections to the previous coloring pages to see if your child can patch the uppercase and lowercase letters.
Be sure to continue with the sounds and go nice and slow.
Once the uppercase letters are also fully understood, you can print out the next coloring page in the “word family” format.
These word families are made up of only those first 6 letters: s, a, t, i, p, and n.
Since your child now knows each sound you are set to help him blend those sounds together and read those word families!
Your little one will be reading! How exciting is that!!! There is of course much more information and support, as well as many playful learn to read activities in Play into Letters and sounds (be sure to grab your copy for 50% off today!)
