How to Teach the Alphabet to Preschoolers
Sandpaper letters are part of the Montessori approach to learning how to read. These letters provide a tactile and visual way to help children learn the alphabet. In the Montessori method, you teach letters to a child in the 3-period lesson. Show your child the letters.
Have them trace the sandpaper letters. The best way to teach children alphabet letters is by telling them their phonetic sound. So each time they trace the letter, say the phonetic sound. Ask your child to follow simple directions with the letters.

Continue to do this with each letter several times to reinforce this. If it is too difficult, return to the first period. I think teaching letters with alphabet puzzles are an amazing tool for teaching the alphabet. This is my favorite puzzle, from Melissa and Doug. This is a great way to practice vocabulary and verbal skills, too.
I have quite a few alphabet printables on my blog, but here are is a set that is easy and fun for preschoolers. You will need Do a Dot Markers or dot stickers to fill in the circles. I love pulling printables out for a quick and easy activity. Using Do a Dot makers or dot stickers is great for hand-eye coordination and fine motor sills. Thank you for making this post. It is so helpful. I am actually interested in getting the sandpaper letters. I remember learning the alphabet from them and alphabet boxes. I found it fun and useful. This is amazing since i dont have many memories from this age.

That is amazing that you still remember sandpaper letters!! Thanks for your comment. We went over the sound of the letter we were working on and than I had him go around the house and find things that began with that letter sound and put it into the brown paper bag.
He had alot of fun searching for stuff with the correct letter sound!! Thanks for including the list of what a preschooler should know before Kindergarten. That gives me a concrete goal to work towards with my son. Thank you so much, Ann! Thanks again for your sweet words! We did a variation of the alphabet boxes last week, too.
I love the alphabet boxes and sandpaper letters. Thanks for sharing with the Hearts for Home Blog Hop! I loved this post! What age do you recommend starting to teach the alphabet? I started with my oldest when he was 2. He seemed ready, but that may seem early for some. If they seem interested, then you can start when they are ready! Thanks for your kind words.
Wow… The Sandpaper letters are interesting. I was a teaching assistant at a Montessori school and one thing the kids liked to do was make letter books with the sandpaper letters.

Fold a small piece of paper around the letter tile ours were homemade on pieces of thin wood and rub a crayon over it to make a rubbing. The kids would do their names and we would make a banner using string. The older kids would sound out words and we would staple them together. Thank you so much for taking the time to share it.
I will be trying this out with my kids!!
The kids line up and take turns taking an alphabet card from a deck of alphabet cards , then running to touch the letter on the wall. This is great for numbers as well.
