Learning Stages

Children are tactile and visual. Let them use their senses to learn the alphabet. With your child, make alphabet cards to help her remember the shape and the sound the letter represents. The color or materials used on each card should relate to the letters. Examples: paint the letter P with purple paint, make an M from macaroni, cut out a V from a scrap of velvet cloth, use dry beans for B, form a J with jelly beans or glue rice in the shape of an R. When the cards have dried, have your child trace each letter with her finger while saying the letter’s name and sound.
