Letter recognition is the first step in learning to read. There are many ways to introduce the concept of letters to children. The fact that letters are everywhere makes it incredibly easy. First off, read to your child. Beyond that, look for letters everywhere in your environment, especially if you and your child are out and about. Examples? Street signs, grocery stores, magazines in doctor and dentist offices are great ways to identify letters. Lastly, use flashcards and worksheets. Keep all lessons short but regular. The more often a child sees a letter, the more likely they are to remember it. Once children can identify the letters and their sounds, they can move on to connecting the individual sounds to form written words.
