“A for Apple, B for…” is something almost all children have heard. Most parents tend to introduce or even teach letters of the alphabet to children much before they join school through stories, songs, and even activities. As a result, many of them can sing the alphabet song before they are taught letters formally.
Though it seems simple, teaching letters to children can be a complex task. That is why, today, we will cover some fun and non-traditional ways of teaching letters to children, as alphabet knowledge is an important learning goal for young ones.
Tips to teach letters of the alphabet to children
Here are a few things parents can do to make alphabet learning enjoyable for their children.

As always, do remember not to rush children through this process, celebrate tiny successes along the way, and reward them with ample praise and encouragement.
