5 Great Websites to Teach Letters

485097_abc_blocksEvery year, I add to my list of websites that teach kindergarten letters. I find out which ones students are working on in class, then demonstrate using each of the following websites how students can practice on the computer.
Which do you think is their favorite?
  • Find the letter--three different levels so you can personalize this to student needs–easy, medium, hard
  • Find the letter–how many letters can students find in 30 seconds?
  • Bembo’s Zoo--letters that morph themselves into the animal name. Entrancing!
  • Starfall Letters–lots of practice with the most age-appropriate games  you can find on the internet
  • Click the Square--click on squares to create letters. Each click plays music. This is mesmerizing. Have them write the letters, their name, whatever they want
