I wasn’t really sure how to tackle Maryam on reading. I tried phonic with her, tried introducing rhyming; but she doesn’t look interested.
I am in no way pushing this thing, not until she is ready.
Until I introduced her to Watermelon Letter Recognition with Dot Stickers, I was amazed she can complete all the uppercase and lowercase versions!
She even asked for more!
Yeay for fun and engaging printables!
Basically, how does this activity works?

How to Use Watermelon Letter Recognition
You can use these printable pages in 2 ways.
Activity #1: Match uppercase letters to uppercase letters
If your kids are just beginning to recognize letters, let them match according to the uppercase and lowercase letters.
For instance, let them match the uppercase letter A on your dot sticker, to the uppercase letter A on the Watermelon.
Peel that dot sticker with the letter A and put it on the watermelon’s circle that have letter A.
Repeat this until she completed all letter A to Z.
Maryam love to do this while singing on her own.
Then do the same with lowercase letters.
Activity #2: Match uppercase letters to the lowercase letters or vice versa
You can also set the game to be matching uppercase letters to its lowercase letters.
For example, match the letter ‘A’ on dot stickers, to the letter ‘a’ on the watermelon.
