Mister Smith's Letter Recognition Program (flashcards-uppercase)

Mister Smith's Letter Recognition Program (flashcards-uppercase)

Effective approach to teaching letters to young children. (Letter Recognition, Alphabet Identification) Flashcards are set up with letter and association picture on the front and an explanation of how to teach on the back. This program starts with "easy" letters first and builds off of success. The flashcards come with a set of guidelines. Each letter is grouped into either the "easy", "medium" or "more difficult" level. This approach is perfect for children who are in preschool or kindergarten. They can be used one on one or in a small group. The techniques used are based on simple visualizations of the letter that translates into the letter name using a mixture of mnemonics, rhyming and other memorization techniques.
