Using Meaningful Experiences to Teach Letters


Episode Summary

Letter identification is one of the first things parents, administrators and some teachers think of when they think of preschool learning.

Truth is there is a TON more that goes into supporting children in the area of literacy before they are readers (we are setting the foundation after all...). 

But, that also doesn't mean that letter learning isn't important- it's just important to remember that it's just a piece of the bigger literacy puzzle.


Topics Discussed:

  • Changes in education- How teaching letters has evolved and why meaningful experiences are important when teaching letters
  • How we can approach letter learning with meaningful experiences in mind
  • How we can use names to begin the letter recognition process
