A New Alphabet Box Each Week

You usually introduce a new letter each week to kids in preschools. You introduce the letter, the sound and the formation. As well, you relate the letter to a theme. For example, you find animals that start with this letter. 

You can use the weekly theme to create an alphabet box for kids to use. You put some objects inside the books that begin with this letter. For example, If it is the week for the letter “T”, you can put a toothpaste, tape, a tomato and toast. 

Each kid picks one object, says its name, the letter it begins with and the sound of this letter. This can be a fun way to have your kids get interested in the week ahead, and work together to think of an answer.

Relate to Other Topics

Repeating a letter over and over again can make the kids feel bored. So, you can mix it up a little by talking about related lessons. You can introduce the week’s letter as your core subject. Then, during the day you can introduce other topics. 

For example, if you are on the letter “C,” you can learn about the weather “Cold” too.  The word cold begins with the letter C.  You can ask the kids about the weather in winter. You can relate to the seasons of the year and the weather as well.
