Next, prepare a recipe, or write a letter yourself in pencil on a piece of paper so that the child could start by circling the letters and then try to write on his own. A prerequisite - the baby must pronounce the letters that he writes. Show him pictures of animals, various objects, toys, starting with the letter that the baby records and pronounces. In addition, you can make letters from plastic, plasticine or just cut letters from cardboard.The child remembers the shape of the letters, touching the figures and pronounces aloud. When a child more or less remembers the letters, you can play: the child closes his eyes, and you put a letter in his hand, he feels it and says it. You can use this exercise: you write a letter with your finger on the back of the baby. He must also guess the letter, then he will write it on your back, thus he will remember the spelling of letters, and the game will be more interesting. Next, you need to change the sensory channel and do the following exercise: put three to five cards with the image of letters and name one of them, the child should show you the one you called. Or you can name not a letter, but a whole word, then the child will need to find the letter on which it begins. Moreover, children love to search for something. Ask your child to find any letter in the room: he will run around excitedly and look for the letter you said. If you study not with one child, but with at least two, then this occupation will be much more fun.
