It is important to teach letters and sounds in preschool education as it lays the foundation for reading and writing skills. This early exposure to language and literacy can also improve children’s communication and cognitive development. Preschool learning environments that could be created to teach letters and sounds include interactive and hands-on activities such as letter recognition games, phonics songs, and letter tracing exercises. The classroom could also have a print-rich environment with alphabet charts, word walls, and books. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas for teaching letters and sounds could include introducing a letter of the week, where children learn to recognize and write the letter, as well as identify words that start with that letter. Other activities could include playing rhyming games, practicing phonemic awareness through sound sorting activities, and creating alphabet crafts. These lesson plans could be adapted to fit the cultural context of Erikson preschool education in Japan
