What you will need:

  • A wipe board

What to do:

  1. Draw the letter F on the wipe board, one stroke at a time.
  2. Take your child’s hand and guide them to make their own letter F.
  3. Tell your child the name of the letter and the sound it makes (‘fuh’) and ask them to repeat it.
  4. Look around the room you are in and point out things that start with the letter F. For example, you might find flowers, a fireplace, a fridge, or the number four.


If your child learns the capital letter F right away, introduce the lower case letter f.
