On this weeks Tuesday Tots I’m featuring 6 activities for tots to learn letters and words. We’re just at this stage with J and he’s loving the phonics, and sight words so sharing activities that showcase different ideas that are easy to do at home fits right in with what we are doing at home and he is doing at school.

6 fun letter and simple word activities for tots

First off My Nearest and Dearest shares an alphabet construction activity to help with letter recognition.

If you are looking for some resources to help with letters then Playdough to Plato has a fabulous pack that you can download this week.

Learning letters doesn’t have to be done at a table and can be messy as well – Little Bins for Little hands shares some messy play abc fun this week.

I love this idea of focusing on 1 letter at a time and have started with T to think up some ideas to start this and this focus on Letter M crafts from The Measured Mum has some fabulous ideas for M.

Moving on from the abcs and onto words one of the first words children learn are their names and over on An Idea on Tuesday there are some great ideas for name recognition.

And lastly from Playdough to Plato this fabulous spider word families great for learning related words.
