If you’d like to build your preschooler’s literacy skills, make sure that you don’t forget about helping them know capital letters.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD KNOW CAPITAL LETTERS
Preschooler’s usually start out learning capital letters because they are the easiest to learn. Preschooler’s fine motor skills are usually formed well enough to move on from scribbles to capital letters, before being ready for lower case letters. Capital letters are also easier to differentiate, as many lower case letters can look the same to children.
Preschooler’s will usually learn the alphabet song before being able to identify a few letters by sight. By the age of 5, preschooler’s can usually identify 23-26 letters and their sounds.
