Your Child and the ABC’s

For your younger children, learning the ABC’s can be a difficult process. There are many different ways to teach your children the alphabet. What is right for one parent is not always right for the other. But, the positive thing is that there are so many different techniques.

Start off with the simple ABC song as they sit on an alphabet classroom carpet. This will take time to learn. But, it is a proven technique. Remember, repetition is always the key. The more the child hears, or sees the letters, the quicker they will learn the letters. It can be and fun and entertaining process.

Gather some of your child’s favorite items. This is also a good way for them to learn letters. If your child has named a favorite stuffed animal, teach them the letters of the name. You can write the letters down so your child can see the letters as you sound them out. Whichever way you choose is best for your child will be a fun learning experience for everyone involved.
