It’s time to learn a new letter. Now that your child is done with their As and Bs, let’s move on to the letter “C”. In this article, we’ll explore some fun activities to teach your kid the letter “C”, in preparation for their future education at school. But first, don’t forget to change our “Letter of the Week” board from “Bb” to “Cc”. Don’t hesitate to decorate your board with a few cute or funny drawings of words that start with the letter of the week. For example, now that we’re on “C”, you can add a drawing or print-out of a cat.
As with every letter, it might be very beneficial for your child to engage in conversation about the letter, its name, shape and/or sound. For instance, you can describe the letter by stating that it’s made of only one curved line, more specifically a half circle. You can also point out how the letter C can be made using our hands, demonstrate or instruct your child to imagine they’re holding a bottle in their hand, then point out how they’re making the letter C. One unique feature of this letter compared to the first two is that the sound it produces does not resemble the sound of its name most of the time. Some activities you can offer your child to help them learn the letter C are:
These activities might sound simple and easy to you as an adult, but to your child's developing mind, they will do wonders. The beauty of such activities is that they work on all the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
