Every family with preschool and primary age children should have a set of magnetic letters on their refrigerator.  They are a fun and easy teaching tool.  Here are a few activities for preschoolers:

1)   Make the names of people and animals in the family.

2)  Sort upper and lower case letters.  Pair and match upper and lower case letters.

3)  Sort letters by color.

4)  Put the letters in alphabetical order while singing the ABC song.

5)  Make simple words.  Copy environmental print such as cereal names off  boxes.
