Learning my ABC’s: Five Activities to Reinforce Letter Learning (Cc)

  • I dotted out the letters Cc onto a white sheet of paper and asked B4 to join the dots.   This activity will help her remember how to write the letter Aa:

  • We made the shape of Cc with our arms.  This activity helped her to figure out how the shape of the letter looked and how to replicate it:

  • I copied out a large C and small c onto a piece of paper in block letters.  I asked B4 to choose the correct letter C stamp and stamp lots of C’s onto the drawn Cc, saying its sound each time. This activity helped her to remember what sounds the letter Cc makes:

  • Using our A,B,C poster I asked B to point to the letter C and tell me some words which begin with its sound. This activity was to help her to recognise the letter Cc even when hidden among many other different letters:

  • Finally we began learning to sign the alphabet using this resource.  This helped her to understand that learning letters was the start to learning to communicate with those letters:

Next week I will have five more hands on activities to reinforce letter recognition.

    1. We have signers in our church who sign the service to the deaf community each week. Watching them has me in tears- it really is very beautiful. So I thought I would introduce the beauty of sign into our little homeschool!

  1. Fun activities. I love that she is learning to sign the letters. We are learning sign language. It is taxing on my brain! She is so cute pointing out the C on the quilt. Claire, you are doing a fantastic job of teacher B her alphabet. So much more fun than a boring worksheet. I hope you have a lovely week.
