The ABCs- The Alphabet- Amazing Phonics for Kids

Teaching Kids the Alphabet

Teaching kids the alphabet is one of the most interesting things parents could be doing when it comes to homeschooling. There are different ways that parents and teachers depend when it comes to teaching their kids the alphabet; some might depend on singing a song, others might depend on playing games, while some parents might depend on shapes and toys to let the kids relate to every single letter to something that its name starts with that letter.

For example, always having a cat to use while teaching the kids letter “C” and how to spell it correctly.

There are a Couple of Things which they are supposed to PAY ATTENTION to:

  1. The ways kids memorize the order of the letters.
  2. How do they pronounce them. 

It’s essential to teach your children ABCs at a young age. First, they should know the shape of the letter, after that they should know the sound of the letter well. Then they should practice how to put sounds together to make words. They can not read or write without knowing ABCs well. Let’s see how we help our kids to memorize the order of the letters and how they pronounce the letter correctly. 

Many ways to help our kids to memorize the order of the letters. You can simply teach your kids ABCs by using funny and simple ways which help them learn the Alphabet easily. Let’s see:

  • Sing Alphabet Song

It is a great way to start with, anytime anywhere. All of us love singing, which songs help our kids to memorize well. The ABCs song is known as “A-B-C-D, E-F-G”. You can play the song in the morning during breakfast time or when they start playing. This song is not only for fun, but it also has an educational purpose.

  • Use Flashcards

Using flashcards of ABCs for kids have many benefits. Flashcards improve our kids’ knowledge and their visual memory. Flashcards also improve their skills and their ability to memorize. Design a flashcard with a letter and a word for it, this word should have a picture to improve their visual memory. 

For example, Aa is for Apple.

You can play a memory game with your kids. It is a good game for your kids to memorize ABCs easily. Memory game has many benefits such as it improve the attention and concentration of the brain. It builds their brain for critical thinking, they try to think so that they are always attention and concentrating. 

  • Play with Letter Blocks

Letter blocks are a great way to help your kids remember letters fast. It is a fantastic game, they spend a lot of time playing with letters. They learn how to be self-reliant, increase their attention span, improving their creativity and social skills.

First, they can use the blocks to play and make towers, shapes, and so on. Then, they arrange blocks to make a word. Playing with blocks has many benefits. Our kids use their hands and eyes to build what they want from shapes. Playing with blocks also teaches kids math and engineering at an early age. Not only play with blocks improve our kids’ skills but also improve their social skills with their sibling, friends, and relative. They learn how to share material, and take turns.  

  • Eat Foods Shaped like Letters

They are many kinds of food shaped like letters such as noodles, macaroni, and biscuits. Make their mealtime fun and educational by asking them what letter do you eat?

You can also make a baking session with them by using a cookies cutter, always ask them about the letters. Let them design their names with the cookies and choose the letter they want to eat.

  • Learn ABCs from Worksheets

There is a great variety of worksheets for ABCs that help our kids practice and have fun. Worksheets are considered huge teaching tools, which improve our kids’ performance.

How do They Pronounce the Alphabet?

English Alphabet and their pronunciation are so important for kids to know at an early age. A good foundation is important for their future language.

As we know the English language has letters like other languages. English has 26 letters divided into two groups consonants and vowels. Both of these groups work together to form syllables.

When we are interested in teaching our kids how to speak English, they should know the names of the letters well. However, the sounds of the letters don’t always correspond to letter names. So that it’s so important to our kids to know the names of the letters and their sounds “pronunciations” as well.

Let’s Learn Consonants Together:

When we pronounce consonant letters, we should hold the airflow from our mouths. This is by closing the lips, or by using the teeth or tongue.

Let’s Learn Vowels Together:

When we pronounce vowels letters, we should allow the airflow out of our mouths. Vowels have different sounds. As we know we only have five vowels, but sometimes we considered “y” as a vowel. “Y” is considered from consonants and vowels.
