Younger children can work on letter recognition through ordering while older children can work on telling the difference between vowels and consonants. Children of any age struggle with alphabetizing, so learning games for kids provides one of the best ways for students to practice. Students can also hone their dictionary and encyclopedia skills by putting words in alphabetical order.
Manuscript or cursive? At one time, manuscript (print) writing was typically taught in first grade, whereas cursive was introduced later, usually in third grade. Historically, some authorities argued for the superiority of one form over the other for children, most often for the superiority of cursive over manuscript.
For instance, while children are practicing writing a given letter, they can also be saying the sound the letter makes. In teaching cursive, explicitly teach connections between letters as well as formation of single letters. Unlike manuscript writing, cursive writing involves making connections between letters within a word. Once children can form individual letters, explicit teaching of letter connections is important.
