Preschooler Activities on Letter and Number Recognition

Preschooler Activities on Letter and Number Recognition

As a mother it's my constant endeavor to keep my child busy with interesting and engaging activities which are easy and fun to do. These days we are in the process of learning alphabets and numbers, hence listing down few activities which I have recently done with my daughter.

Activity 1 -  Letter Tracing with cotton swab

A very simple activity where you need to write letters on a paper and your child will trace the same with the help of a cotton swab.

Activity 2 - Number counting and matching with cloth pins

Draw a simple star or anything else from 1-10 and let your child count and put the right cloth pin with the right number on each block.

Activity 3 - Uppercase and Lowercase alphabets matching
Take an old cardboard box and make 26 inserts on it for 26 letters. Now ask your child to match the lowercase letter on the box with the uppercase letter written on the ice cream stick.

Activity 4 - Number counting with pompoms/beads

Take an egg box and write numbers inside each egg holder. Ask your child to recognize the number and put the correct number of pompoms inside each holder.

Activity 5 - Find and cover
Let your child put the correct bead on each letter mentioned in the square grid.

So, these were few activities which we did recently. Hope you find them useful. Do try them with your child and let me know how they found it.

Simple activities on alphabet recognition & sequencing for toddler and preschoolers

While revising alphabets I realised that K was finding it difficult to revise alphabets as per their sequence. Hence decided to quickly plan few activities for her around it.
1    Upper case to lower case matching

A simple activity where I wrote some random upper case letters on white paper and pasted it on the cupboard. For matching, I wrote their lower case counterpart on post its and K had to match them. Looks a very simple activity but I can tell you K had lots of fun removing the post its and sticking it near the correct letter.
