15 Ways to Teach Your Preschooler the Alphabet
15 ways to teach your child the alphabet. When it comes to learning the alphabet I do not go in order. For example, I want my child to learn his name first and how to write it before I do the whole alphabet.
This seems more natural to me. Secondly, when I teach my son I try not to spend too much time looking at milestones and compare what he’s doing with what others are doing.
“Naturally we want what is best for our child”
I set up the best environment for learning for my toddler. Finding new ways to teach my son is super fun for me. I love watching him play and learn, it makes my heart happy.
Finally, here are 15 ways to teach your child the Alphabet.
