Tips for Teaching Letter A to Preschool and Kindergarten
The letter A has two main sounds: the short A sound AND the long A sound.
When you begin teaching letter A to preschoolers or kindergarteners it’s important that you stick with the short A sound (apple, axe, attic). Because introducing multiple sounds per letter, at this point, will only cause confusion.
Another thing to keep in mind for preschoolers and kindergartener, is visual letter confusion OR letter reversal. This confusion is very common as kids are learning their alphabet, but with a little bit of practice, can easily be straightened out. (The lowercase letter A can sometimes be confused with u, c, and o. The uppercase letter A is sometimes confused with the letter H. (Try different strategies for learning letters and sounds to help with these common mixups.)
