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.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.
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.
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
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.
