Memorizing & Letter Recognition

I just wanted to share another activity we've been using for Din to learn letter recognition.  He has a wonderful desk which we picked up at a consignment store.  When you lift the desk cover up, there are letters that stick to the underside of it.  Magnetic letters on the refrigerator would work just as well for this activity.  First together we go through and put the alphabet in order from A to Z. Then we take turns closing our eyes and the other person pulls off one of the letters and hides it behind his/her back.  The other person has to guess which letter is missing.  He loves this game and makes him have to repeat the alphabet to guess the letter.  He can play this one for a long time!
