Introduction and Identification of the Alphabets using Flashcards

Once the preschoolers get settled in their class, teachers teach alphabets to the kids in the classroom. If she uses the blackboard or charts to teach “A” the child’s attention span is less. They feel insecure in the new atmosphere. One child will be playing and the other will be crying. So it is best to use flashcards. Flashcards play an important role in teaching resources. If a teacher prepares 3 or 4 sets of flashcards it will be very useful for both the teachers and the kids. While preparing flashcards make flashcards without confusing the child. If the capital letter “A” means – introduce “A” caps alone. Do not introduce both Capital and small letters together. Kids get confused easily.
