Learning all 26 letters in the alphabet is vital for reading success and can be difficult for young children. Before a child can learn to read they must have phonological awareness and memory, be able to rapidly name the letters in the alphabet and recognize the letters and the sounds they make. The best way to teach children the alphabet is to immerse them with books, games, activities and lessons that not only create phonetic awareness but are fun and exciting.
Always make learning fun! We would like to inspire early educators with fun games, activities, lessons and crafts that are sure to be a hit with your students. These crafts and activities could also be used as supplemental activities to your favorite alphabet lesson plans.
