I have always taught the upper and lowercase letters at the same time, but after doing some reading, I'm thinking about switching to lowercase first. It makes sense that most of the print the children will come in contact with will be lowercase, yet preschools seem to focus on uppercase. I know Kindergarten teachers that get frustrated that the children want to write in all uppercase letters. I'm thinking of exposing them to both upper and lowercasw visually, but focussing on writing lowercase first then adding uppercase later. I am interested in your thoughts on this.
