Learning the alphabet can be easy for some kids, but more challenging for others. The English alphabet comprises forty different shapes and that’s a lot for kids to learn!
Some letters have multiple sounds, are harder to recognize or learn to write and need more time on it. Most kids can recognize O, B, X, and A, but when it comes to lowercase letters b and d, it’s more challenging.
Today I’m sharing a resource for teaching tricky letters. It’s also a fun activity for Halloween!
The packet includes color printables, black and white printabes, and blank templates so you can add your own letters.
