Letter Identification

During the Reading Recovery lesson the student is asked to identify and sort magnetic letters to:

Promote fast recognition of letters (a skill that is needed when reading).

Look for similarities and differences between letters.

Learn / revise the names and sounds of letters.

Your child may have magnetic letters at home that can be used for sorting, matching and making words. Children can sort magnetic letters in many ways including: Color (e.g. find all the red letters), Letter (e.g. find all the ‘g’s), Uppercase versus lowercase (e.g. find all the capital letters), In my name, In my friend’s name, Have holes, Have curves, Straight lines, Tails, Tall versus short, and Sounds (e.g. match the letters and picture cards).
