Alphabet Shapes

What you need:
A large sheet of paper
Plastic alphabet letters

What you do:
1. Trace all of the alphabet letters on the paper, in alphabetical order.

2. Every few days -- or at a pace set by your child -- ask her to place a few letters on their corresponding space. Say the name of the letter.

Why it works:
Your child becomes aware of letter shapes.
