Helping your preschoolers recognize letters can be daunting and repetitive. This fun dot painting activity will be sure to help your toddler/preschooler recognize their lowercase letters in no time while keeping them engaged!
Letter recognition is very important and paves the way for children to learn more about how words and text are written. It also introduces letter sounds that foster early reading skills. So engaging, fun and interactive activities are the perfect way to help your preschooler get a head start with their early reading skills!
My youngest son Zachary is starting to learn his letters and has gotten really good at recognizing uppercase letters! He’s so quick to point and say the letters enthusiastically. However, he struggles quite often with lowercase recognition. I wanted to create something that would help get him excited to learn while also encouraging him to get a little messy too!
What You Need
For this activity, you’ll need a set of dot painters. My favorite that we have used for years is the Do A Dot Art Paint Markers. We have had ours for 4 years and the kids use them all the time and they are still lasting! They are also washable, so don’t worry about your little one getting messy! However, you could always take precautions and use this Art Smock that will keep them clean for all their future art projects too!
The 26-page Lowercase Dot Search printable contains a page for each letter of the alphabet. On each page, your preschooler will search for the target letter to dot while closely paying attention to the other decoy letters on the page. Each page contains decoy letters that children commonly mistake each other for, which will help them hone in on their identification skills. Also included on each letter page is a picture that identifies with each letter. You could use this opportunity to begin to introduce letter sounds if you desire to.
