It’s so easy for us to say we want our kids to learn the ABC’s and 123’s before kids hit Kindergarten, but how do we actually do it?
Is there an ideal time to start teaching these all-too-important basics?
What if your kiddo is just not interested in such things? How do you make learning the ABC’s fun?
It’s a lot easier than you may think, and honestly, in my opinion, there’s no time like the present to get rockin’ and rollin’ on helping your kids learn the ABC’s. So whether your child is 6 or 6 months, I’d say get going. Now. And have fun with it.
Start singing, stickering, hunting, painting, and spraying your way to either an alphabet-filled summer.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- 10 Fun Ways of Helping Kids Learn the ABC’s:
3. Celebrate the Letters of Kids’ Names — For the little guys, start with their letter–the first letter of his or her name–and go from there. Find the letter on the cereal box, on signs, in books. Play Family Name Letter Connect. Once they master that, move onto the other letters of the name and then introduce family names.
6. Spray the ABC’s — You heard me. Spray the ABC’s.
8. Sing the ABC Song — Sing that song–c’mon, you know it–same tune as Twinkle, Twinkle and Baa Baa Blacksheep. Sing it all the time. Sing it at bath time, bed time, breakfast time. Sing other songs of course, but make ABC top of the charts. It will help.
