Learning the Alphabet and Beach Ball Fun, a Great Game for Prek

Posted on December 6th, 2010 by Carolyn Hart in Ways to Help Children Learn the Alphabet

An inexpensive and fun way to help children learn lettersAn inexpensive beach ball and a permanent marker are all you need to make this fun learning game. Inflate the beach ball and use the marker to print uppercase or lowercase letters all over the ball. Underline each letter so there is no confusion between “M” and “W” or “p” and “d.” Toss the ball and have the person who catches the ball say the letter name closest to or under one hand. If the child knows the letter names, make the game trickier by asking for the letter sound or a word that begins with the letter.
