    Your timing couldn’t have been more perfect! We are just starting to work with letters. Thanks so much for putting all of these in one place. I especially love the glue tracing alphabet and the dominoes.

    Where do you start w/ teaching the alphabet? how many letters do you focus on in a week? Do you start w/ the letters in their name?

    How old do you feel is appropriate to start?

      I personally like to start with alphabet books but then move into easy simple activities – we have a series called Alphabet For Starters that is a perfect place to start. http://www.notimeforflashcards.com/category/alphabet-for-starters I would start pointing out the words in their names and I wouldn’t single out letters very much. Even when I did Letter of The Week we’d do one main craft that week of one letter but still have a whole alphabet approach. Letters work together so being taught together simply makes sense.

      I don’t think there is an appropriate age to start, instead I think that watching the child and seeing if they start showing interest in letters and then jumping on board. The tricky thing is you need to expose them ( not force- just expose) to letters from an early age so they have the chance to get interested. I hope that helps!
