Letter Recognition Issues

This is the second year my son has been attending school.. he went to Pre K half days which he seemed to excel at and now hes in Kindergarten full days. His teacher and I have noticed hes having problems with learning sounds and letter recognition.
He is doing very well in other academic areas such as math, shapes, patterns etc. However this whole writing-language thing has really got me worried.

His teacher assures me he will receive extra help and I have gotten him to do work books at home. It seems to go in one ear and out the other I don't know if its an  actual issue or if hes just not trying to apply himself to his work.

Any ideas?? Has this happened with any of your children??

Cooper is in first grade and still gets his B's and D's mixed up. Don't feel too bad. Some kids just pick up on it slower than others. Just keep up the hard work and one day, it'll click. Good luck!

Thanks heather I just feel so bad because there talking about a intervention group to help him, and while I am thrilled he's getting help. Is it so bad he's making these mistakes I didn't think so.. He's only been going full days since September!

You made me feel better about it ;)
