Writing Letters – ABC’s the Alphabet for Kids

Getting introduced to the English alphabet letters is the initial step taken in the English language and teaching it to the kids, what follows this step is going further to teaching the kids how to write these letters, which is a little bit harder (Learn the Alphabet for Toddlers).

This is taken step by step and it starts with one letter at a time before moving on to the next. Parents start with teaching the kids these letters, and how they are pronounced, and then they move forward with teaching them how they are supposed to be written. Parents start with one letter at a time, they let the kids imitate what is written in front of them several times – both capital and small letters – then they move one step harder by letting the kids write down the letter without having something there to imitate.

Singing the ABCs as a nursery rhyme or kids’ song is one of the several methods used in teaching them the English alphabet, but there are different other ways or methods, such as using the small magnet letters which they could use on the whiteboard, or else going to the ordinary basic method that is all about writing down the letters, which we believe is considered the most effective even though it is the oldest technique used.

There are other steps or lessons taken afterwards when it comes to the English alphabet, after educating the kids about the letters in general, they then reach the point of teaching them how they are supposed to be written. This is not all the journey, because educating the kids about the alphabet is also related to phonics and this could be easier through using some animals’ names for every single letter and making sure the kids could make the sounds out.

Phonics could be taught through several activities and games, every single one of them will depend on the likes and dislikes of the kid and which one he/she believes is more interesting than the other – that’s when you will realize that your kid is responding to some games more than the others and might love specific ones and not the others.

Every single phase related to teaching the kids something is different than the other and every single one comes with its interesting games and activities – both for the kids as well as for the parents. Play with your kids, teach them by depending on the games and the activities which they will find interesting, and watch out for how it is going to turn out in the end.

Some kids might find it hard to learn writing letters at the beginning of the journey and that’s when parents should take it easy with them and try several times until they finally manage to write these letters in the right way and remember them afterwards when they are asked to write a specific word they have learned.

We have different other videos related to the English alphabet, teaching the kids the ABCs and at the same time letting them write them correctly, You could check the video about the phonetic sounds (Phonics Sounds), playing some spelling games with the kids (Spelling and Writing Games for Kids), creating these letters in a fun kind of way with the play-doh (Writing Letters with Play-Doh) and lots of other videos related to writing the letters each on its own.
