Get Your Preschoolers Excited about the Alphabet

Learning to recognize upper and lower case letters is essential to learning, and there are so many ways to promote this skill!

Knowing that letters are different from each other and that they are made up of shapes is one of the first steps in learning ones letters. It is also important for children to recognize that even the same letter can look different, for example upper case Q and lower case q. Figuring out that individual letters are attached to unique sounds plays a part as well.
