Learning Letters

Identification of Letters

On average, between the ages of two and three, children begin identifying letters of the alphabet.

There are many ABC books that can be used to show a child what a letter looks like and what object it relates to. For example, “A is for Apple.”

It is recommended by many studies that children learn the lower case alphabets first, but many children have an easier time identifying capital letters. Also relate the letters to those that relate to your child’s name.

This process will begin the early stages of understanding that letters make up words.


Once your child has begun the understanding of letters, you can introduce phonics. Studies have proven that phonics are the key to developing young readers into high level readers.

There are flashcards, games and books that you can use to teach your child phonics. My kids loved The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park by LeapFrog as toddlers.

Basically, you show the child the letter and make the sound of that corresponding letter. When beginning phonics, stick to the long sounds of the letters.

As your child progresses, you can add the short sounds, and eventually letter combination sounds. This will develop the skills your child will need in reading, by encouraging the sounding out of words.

Fine Motor Practice

And learning to actually write the letters is important also! Handwriting is just a more focused type of fine motor skills, which is why many preschool activities are geared toward helping kids work on their fine motor skills and grasp control.
