My son is going into Senior Kindergarten and is still struggling with recognizing and saying the name of letters. He can tell you almost every sound each letter makes but if you ask him the name of the letter he can't tell you. It's maddening. I just am not understanding how that can happen? He can recite the alphabet song but if you physically point to the letter P for instance...he will make the popping sound but cannot for the life of himself say what the letter is. He is a smart child, speaks very well, loves to write is numbers and letters etc but we are really struggling with recognition...this goes for numbers as well.
Is anyone else going through this or have any tips? We have been working with him all summer and have the Leap Frog Letter Factory where I have seen a small improvement but not significant.
