At the beginning of the school
To help with this concept, I have two favorite books to read. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom for letters and Chicka Chicka 1,2,3 for number. Both books are so catchy and will have your kids and is a great way to help introduce the concept.
Free Printable Letters and Numbers Sort
To help reinforce the concept of letter and number discrimination I made a free printable letters and numbers sort that can be used during either math, ELA or both for the students to practice.
Simply download and print the printable. Add letters and number manipulatives and you’re ready to go. I used magnetic letters and numbers and also mini eraser letters and number found in the Target Dollar Spot section. Foam letters and numbers would work great as well.
Not only are the students getting to practice differentiating letters and numbers, they are getting to work on their fine motor skills as well.
You can download the free printable letters and numbers sort below.
Or our free printable alphabet tree to help learn the letters and practice writing them.
