Vehicles, Vikings, volcanoes, Oh my! We have a collection of letter V crafts that will blow your mind – or at least your preschooler’s. When your little one is learning to read, letter recognition is one of the most vital steps. And you can help your kid learn to recognize the letter V with the craft ideas we’ve gathered below.
Want some more tips for creating a language-rich home? Read with your kids anytime, anywhere. Seriously, if you can manage 10 minutes while the water is boiling for dinner or just listen to an audiobook on the way to soccer practice, do it. Also underline the letters and words during your day: the stop sign, the store logos, the instructions on the box of macaroni. Show your children how words are an integral part of our daily life. Making these little efforts will go a long way in uplifting a reader.
