Educational Benefits of this Alphabet Game for Preschoolers

There are so many things that this alphabet game for preschoolers will teach your child. They’ll learn all sorts of kindergarten readiness skills.

Picking up the water dropper and squeezing it so the water drips out are all actions that strengthen their fingers. They need these muscles to do things like write and tie their shoes. The more they practice things like this, the stronger it will get.

Another thing it teaches your child is how to identify all of the letters. They will do this activity with you – you tell them which letter to uncover. Then, they pick out the correct letter from among all the other letters.

Part of this activity is matching the uppercase letter with the lowercase letter. The combination of uppercase and lowercase letters is part of print awareness. Uppercase and lowercase letters look slightly different from each other, but if they can pair them, they will have an easier time reading.
