Alphabet Learning

 

Alphabet learning for toddlers and preschoolers can be fun process, filled with song and laughter.

All parents want their children to learn their ABCs. Here are some creative ways to teach your toddler their ABCs.

Contrary to what people may think, learning ABCs is not solely relegated to preschool. It begins much earlier than that; in the womb, in fact. We all know that talking to or playing soothing music for the unborn child does, in effect, produce results.

  • Sing to your baby when she or he is in the womb. At birth, show the baby books with the letters; babies are like sponges and take in everything.
  • Every letter has a keyword. Show the baby picture books and say, “Oh look, this is an A. A is for apple. Include baby flashcards of the letter A along with an apple. Review and repeat this method for all letters, over and over. Using books as a visual aid is important as well.
  • When reading stories to your child, point to a letter and say, “What letter is that? B, and B is for baby.”
  • At age two or later, take a large tray and add salt to it. Have your baby trace the letters. This is a multi-sensory approach to phonics. (make sure they don’t eat the salt!)
  • Sing the alphabet song.
  • Use clay to form your child’s name. Have your child trace over the letter with his or her fingers. Use keywords for each letter in the name. For example, whatever your child’s name is, use the letter to indicate an object the child can relate to.
  • Have your three year old trace over the dots of letters. There is a neurological connection between the tracing and writing; and the information that is being processed in the brain.
  • When you are in the car with your child, tell him or her to look outside at license plates signs. Ask what letters they see; what is the keyword; and what sound does it make.

    Learning can be fun, and in this context, you can come up with creative ways to teach your toddler their ABCs.
