Teach about print and letters

Help your child learn to recognize her name in print. As she watches, print the letters of her name, saying each letter as you write it. Display her name in special places in your home. Encourage her to spell and write her name.

2 Point out words and letters everywhere you can. Read street signs, traffic signs, billboards, and store signs. Point out certain letters in these signs. Ask your child to begin naming common signs and find some letters.

3 Teach your child the alphabet song.

4 Share alphabet books with your child. Some alphabet books have songs and games that you can learn together.

5 Put magnetic letters on your refrigerator or other smooth, safe metal surface. Ask your child to name the letters as he plays with them.

6 Play games using the alphabet. Ask your child to find letters in books, magazines, newspapers, and other print.

Our children are all individuals - they are not our property but people in their own right.
