J-boy has learned how to recognize most of the letters of the Alphabet in preschool this year.  The other day I found a great way to reinforce his learning, instant messaging The Husband.  I keep in touch during the day with The Husband instant messaging and after a few times of me telling J-boy that I’ll be right with him when I done talking to Daddy he wanted to send a message too.  At first I would type it but then I thought, let him have the keyboard.  He’ll sit at the desk and I’ll give him what letter to push and he does a really good job of it.  He has learned what button is for enter and for space.  The other day he found emoticons and always has to include one in his message.  He is so cute sitting there waiting for Daddy to reply.   

If you want a great web site for printables to help teach letter recognition and writing take a look at, First School . This website has great activities for learning how to write letters and recognize letters.  They also have printables for all kinds of preschool topics.

First Born learned to read small words and recognize letters from the Letter Factory and Word Factory from Leap Frog.
