Letter of the Week

I read many Kindergarten blogs that teachers write for the parents of the children in their own class.  On many of these blogs, written by teachers all across our country, I see again and again the instructional use of the letter of the week.  If your child is going to a school where he/she is learning one letter a week, it is time for you to change the way you are working on letters at home.  Every Kindergarten child should review all 26 letters and all 26 sounds every day.  Simply put, every letter, every day! No questions!  The writing process becomes much more of a challenge for your child if his/her teacher or parent is encouraging beginning writing and the letters have not yet been taught.  Until your child knows all of the letters and sounds inside and out, the writing process will not be able to progress as it should.  Parents, all you need is 26 alphabet flash cards, and that is it.  Now practice all of those letters and sounds at least once every day with your child and you will start to see an improvement in his/her Kindergarten writing.
