Really, Preschool Spelling is a bit of a stretch. But it is true that when little ones are intrigued by the letters they see in print, it is possible to pique their interest in reading by spelling the words to them.
Many Preschoolers love to trace the letters of their name and learn to spell it. Depending on how bright your children are, some can learn to spell quite well. Begin with the names of the alphabet letters for spelling practice.
Even though it might be fun to begin spelling at such an early age, I would never expect to force little ones to learn to spell too many words. Yes, a bright child can learn to spell and read very early but he might also tire easily and lose enthusiasm for learning to spell if given too tough a routine.
Be sure to choose fun preschool printable worksheets through the day, too, like coloring pages.
You will also love the huge seasonal collection of holiday coloring pages at our sister site, ColorWithFuzzy.com.
Really, really, really important: Remember that preschoolers are little children and frequently too much time spent at a close application like writing is not only hard or boring, but it can be detrimental to their eyes in the future in the way that their eyes align for nearsighted or farsighted vision.
Short amounts of fun work is all we recommend for little ones.
Even though it is early to expect real writing skills, there are many ways that preschoolers can begin to learn to write.
At this age quizzes and tests are not necessary.
For that matter, neither are worksheets and flash cards; but worksheets and flash cards can be fun ways to get pre-kindergarten children used to learning to read, write, and figure their Math.
Counting is usually what preschoolers learn with a slight mix of addition added to the day.
