Teaching Toddlers the Alphabet

If your child is beginning to show interest in letters and texts, then it may be time to start formally introducing the alphabet! Can you guess what letters are most frequently found in emerging texts? S, a, t, i, p and n. By teaching these letters first, children can start forming words right away! Another set of letters that should be taught first to children are the letters in their name! They are most meaningful and important to them.
A great way to approach teaching the alphabet is to incorporate sensory play! Setting up themed sensory activities that go with each letter is a great way to engage children with hands-on learning.
Check out these sensory play letter activities below for helping children learn their letters. The following four sensory activities are also perfect for fall learning! Follow along with me on instagram @abalancedchildhood while I teach my 3 year old the alphabet.
