How we learn letters, preschoolers

I have no goal to teach a child to read before all peers. The son is not yet three years old, so we have everything ahead. But somehow I took and bought the alphabet on magnets. I bought it because my son at that moment had a hobby to hang and remove magnets on the fridge. I’m in the kitchen doing things, and he is passionate about.

It turned out that he was interested in not only the cards with their ability to stick to the refrigerator, but also the letters themselves on them.

For myself, I highlighted a few important points related to the child learning the letters.

Catch interest


I think this is the most important thing. Start exactly when the child is interested. How to identify this interest? I do not know. Probably try. We started from about two years old.

Match with words


Playing with my son in the magnetic alphabet, we noticed how easily he remembers the letters. Especially simply he was given the first letters of the names of relatives. If we relate to a word, then I try to make the word simple and familiar to my son. For example, if the letter O, then I tell him a cloud, and not some omul there 🙂

The pictures to the letters should be clear pictures. On our alphabet, I just don’t like pictures – animals are in clothes, in some poses that are not typical of them. Even an adult does not immediately recognize some.

Search for letters


Now we are adult family members, then the son is looking for letters wherever they can be found: signs, newspapers, books, keyboard. I try not to dismiss my son and always to his question: What is the letter? I answer.

Correctly pronounce


I call the son of the letter is not as they are called in the alphabet (uh, en, etc.), and I pronounce the sound: m, n. Names and then he learn. And so it will be easier for him to add syllables from them.

Don’t bother


If we consider that developmental activities for three-year-olds should last only about 10 minutes, then all our learning of letters passes, as it were, by chance, a little bit. The main thing is not to discourage the child’s interest.

Learn by playing


When they gave us a multifunctional Chinese educational toy (the train runs along the rails, the alphabet and the sounds of animals), I first laughed: the Chinese teach our children literacy :). And now I treat this toy more condescendingly.

The train broke down immediately, but the talker is still alive. All children love to press the buttons, thereby extracting the sound. The son sometimes sits, presses the button and repeats the letters.

We also draw letters, sculpt from clay, write on the snow. We read books about the alphabet, many of them are different, we take in the library.

You can still hang out sheets of paper with letters written or printed on them, but I am afraid that they will become familiar, and the son will stop paying attention to them. So I have not tried this method yet.

I myself began to read very early thanks to the alphabet that my mother drew me: the letters in her were with arms, legs, eyes. When I was 3 years old, playing letters was my favorite activity. In our time, of course, it is easier to buy an alphabet.

Now the son unmistakably recognizes many letters, relating them to words. Says: This is Vasina’s letter, this is Papa’s letter. While he is interested, I think we will continue in the same spirit.

And when did you start learning letters with your child?
