Many people understand the importance of reading fluency, but do you know it begins with letter recognition fluency? The faster your child can state letter names, then sounds and move into blending the strong he/she will be as a reader.
Want to help your child develop this fluency and have fun? Play race the clock. Set a timer for one minute. Have your child read through the capital letters as rapidly as he/she can, and keep track of how many letters they correctly state. The next time have them try to “beat” their score. Notice the letters are in random order, I also encourage you to mix up the order after a few rounds as children get good at memorizing the order.
When I child gets to about 50 letters a minute I have them move onto lowercase letters. After that they move onto letter sounds.
To challenge your child who can get 50+ in capitals, lowercase and sounds… create a page with simple CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant words), nonsense words (ie. veb, mip, tud) or sight words (like, and, it, in, my)
