A, B, C, D, E, F, G....(singing out loud)
I made another old fashioned wooden jigsaw puzzle. This one for the sole purpose to teach letter recognition. I didn't want to cut it out like the mass produced grid cardboard puzzles but I felt I needed to to get what I wanted in terms of the learning....and it worked. Each peice is cut so that it has one letter on it and it is pretty much cut along the color lines. We discovered, the puzzle is best put together by singing the alphabet in crazy voices very slowly and finding the corresponding letter in the pile. (- All this while laughing and having two tiny girls jump on and off your back.) Thus, the letter recognition practice that I was looking for.
