I’ve been dropping hints here and there, and I’m happy to announce that today is it: Letters and Numbers: A Workbook to Help Your Child Recognize Letters and Numbers is officially launched!
But first, let’s backtrack to what started it all.
One of the topics we talk about here on SSBE is how kids learn. Stuff like encouraging kids to do a job well done. The long-term benefits of reading. Helping kids learn and discover.
And it seems SSBE readers do, too. I wrote a post on how to help your child recognize letters and numbers. Not only does it remain in the top 10 posts here on the blog, it’s also the #1 most searched for blog post as well. Parents need practical tips to help their children with letter and number recognition.
I wanted to create something to make it easier for parents to do this. And while the tips helped, they also needed tools.
Thus enters the second part of the backstory, the worksheets.
I’m one of those parents who bought physical workbooks at the store. I wanted to have some sort of curriculum for my kids using letters and numbers. Except the problem was my kids could only practice each letter or number once. There was no way to practice it over and over.
And I also found them… distracting. The graphic designer in me thought the layout wasn’t helping kids learn and write. It was designed to look like what adults think kids would like. And not something kids can use and learn from.
So I found the solution by making my own worksheets. Over the years, I’ve fine-tuned and polished them to be the best worksheets you can find. Stuff like creating them in different sizes. Making the baseline thicker so it looks different from the mid- and top line. Making the starting dots black and the secondary dots gray. And keeping it simple so kids can focus.
And of course, I made it digital, just as I use it with my kids. With a physical copy, you’d have no way to practice the same letter or number again once your child wrote on it. A digital PDF allows you to print and re-print as often as she needs them.
For instance, my twins’ preschool updates me with the letters and numbers they learned. I like to supplement what they’re learning by printing these particular letters. And since many of them repeat week after week, it’s helpful to be able to print them as often as I need to.
Here’s a quick video explaining the workbook further:
The workbook isn’t just worksheets, either. Readers need tips to help their children recognize letters and numbers. I include five handouts that not only address that issue, but others as well. Stuff like how to praise your child and encouraging early literacy. Learning doesn’t work with drills, but fun and encouraging ways raise lifelong learners.
