How to Help Children Learn the Letters of the Alphabet

Fun English for Schools helps children to learn to recognise all of the letters of the alphabet used in the English language in both the uppercase and lowercase, and their letter names.  It is very easy to help your children to recognise and name English letters outside the classroom.

Which letters of the alphabet have your children learned before?

To help your kids learn their alphabet letters, keep in mind which letters they have learned.  Then you can point out known letters on signs, etc. around town or even in children’s storybooks, on television, etc. and have them name the letters pointed out.

Fun English for Schools doesn’t only help to teach the alphabet letters

You should be aware that Fun English for Schools does not simply teach children the letters of the alphabet in alphabetic order.  First they learn the five vowels: Aa, Ee, Ii, Oo, and Uu.  Then children learn all the letters whose letter names end in a long e sound: Bb, Pp, Dd, Tt, Vv, and Zz.  Next, they learn the letters whose letter names begin with a short e sound: Ff, Ll, Mm, Nn, Ss, and Jj.  Then they learn the letters whose letter names end in the long a sound: Jj, and Kk.  Finally, children learn the remaining letters: Rr, Yy, Cc, Gg, Hh, Ww, and Qq.

Organising helps kids to learn letters

The reason children are not taught the letters of the alphabet in order is because by organising them in the above sets, it later makes single letter phonics learning easier.

Practice helps children to learn letters

Of course, don’t forget about the letter-based activities on your Fun English for Schools app.  This activity makes it possible for children to practice their letters in a fun and engaging way at any time and at any location outside the classroom.
