Say, Sing, Chant
The Alphabet


As children are learning the names of the letters and the order of the letters, they are learning a pattern -- an organizational scheme -- that will become very valuable when using dictionaries, telephone books, and so on. Reinforce the alphabet itself by

  • singing the alphabet song together.
  • sharing a variety of alphabet books.
  • marching to the cadence of a chanted alphabet.
  • popping up from a crouched position when a letter is called.
