Is your toddler interested in using the computer, but lacking the skills needed to find specific keys? Katie from Katie's Nesting Spot's uses this simple introduction to the letters computer activity from Fisher Price to help her toddler. It says each letter in order and with a push of a button the letter morphs into the next one. There is also a zoo animals game which says the letter and the corresponding zoo animal, but her daughter prefers the no frills version.
Alphabet Bang offers a similar format. The game takes your child through the alphabet. An animated child says each letter and identifies a corresponding object.

Katie from Katie's Nesting Spot has used sandpaper letters. They are great for students who learn best from a multisensory delivery. Students also enjoy making crayon rubbings. Place a sandpaper letter under the paper and scribble on top of the paper until the letter appears. One fun "game" is called mystery letter. Don't tell your child which letter is under the paper. Let them guess and "discover" for themselves.
