As the parent of a preschooler, you should make alphabet lessons an important part of your daily routine. Waiting until your child starts preschool or kindergarten to begin work on the alphabet will put your child behind in the literacy race while teaching your preschooler the alphabet can make them a sure winner. Teaching the alphabet letters does not need to be arduous or complicated and certainly does not require special tools. One of the simplest way to teach your child the alphabet is by using food. After all, your child needs to eat.
Make signs with a large capital first letter and smaller case following and post them around the home; Bathroom, Refrigerator, Door, Mirror, Dog's bed, Cat toy, etc. Ask the child every time you pass a sign, "what does that say?" until they are 100% correct. Play games with letters, putting the word of the day on the refrigerator door with magnetic ones, and playing and arranging letters on a table. Write or trace the letters on paper and then have the child think of as many words as he can that have that sound. Play games about animals, food or flowers; asking how many the child can think of that start with a certain letter. Rhyming word games are great learning tools.
If your goal is to provide learning opportunities for your child, you will want more than a few pictures to color in, although this is an important skill to practice. Between the ages of 3 and 7, the so−called formative years, your child is ready and willing to learn. This is a great time to start introducing the basic skills that your child will use for the rest of their lives such as counting, reading and writing. With your help and supervision, your child can do math worksheets, alphabet worksheets and much more.
