Pointing at the words-When I read with my five year old I point to the words so she becomes familiar with them.
Laminating sheets-I wanted my five year old to practice writing her letters and her name, so I decided to print some letter sheets and laminate them. I also purchased some dry erase markers so she could repeatedly trace the letters and her name. I'm going to start doing this with my three year old as she starts kindergarten next September.
Educational games-My children love playing educational games on the computer. They also enjoy playing with their LeapFrog. My three year old is getting better at tracing her letters because of her LeapFrog.
There are so many things parents can do to help their little ones read. Be creative and have fun with it :-)
