Check out this simple game from Five Minute Mum to help your child get used to recognising letters. It can be done with foam letter mats, pieces of paper, kitchen roll – whatever you’ve got lying about.
Also, consider train alternatives if your child isn’t a fan of trains. Five Minute Mum has some great suggestions, such as a pirate ship or a princess carriage – but use whatever your child likes to inspire the game.
Please remember to use the phonics sounds for the letters, rather than the letter ‘name’. For help pronouncing the phonetic sound of each letter as your child will learn them in school, check out this helpful video and phonics guide from Oxford Owl.
