My son is 4 and is in Pre-K half a day and he knows colors, shapes, can count to 20 (sometimes higher) can say his ABC's and even knows the sounds, BUT at the last parent teacher conference his teacher said he knows all this but he doesn't recognize the letters. Anyone have any ideas of how I can help him? She said if he doesn't improve by the Spring she'll talk more about him being back in Pre-K next year (which I don't want him to but if that is what needs to be done then fine) Thanks in advance!Answer Question

Maybe flashcards and having him write them with you going over it would work.

We got a Leap Frog Fridge Phonics Letters. It has a 'base' unit that sticks magnetically to the fridge and comes with uppercase letters. When you put a letter in the opening on the base it says the letter and the sound it makes. They also make a companion set that is lower case letters. In almost no time my DD was able to recognize letters and she was most interested in the letters that make her name.
