A useful puzzle for helping children to become familiar with the alphabet, and with the role of letters in formation of words.
Ideas for enhancing play and learning:
- Ask the child to select the letter that his/her name starts with. Repeat this with other family members and pets.
- While placing letters in their correct position on the board, it could be useful for the child to learn the sound of the letter and to have him/her think of other words that begin with this same sound.
- First simple naming words can be formed with the accompanying use of the Lowercase Puzzle. Children can begin to recognise the difference between upper and lowercase letters.
Suitable for ages: 3+ Years
