When Should I Start Teaching Letters?
By The age of 2 children will start to recognize some of the letters of the alphabet. By The ages of 3 and 4, children are typically able to recognize most if not all of the letters. Over the years as an ECE educator, I have noticed that most children begin to recognize the letters in their name first.
You can start to teach your toddler letters early. as early as 1-year-olds. The purpose of teaching letters early to toddlers is to get them familiar with the concept, Most Toddlers do not start to recognize them typically until around 2 years old. The goal isn’t for them to recognize the letters just yet, the purpose is to just get them familiar with them.
Letter Recognition is skill that children develop over time.
It’s important to remember that letter recognition is something that most children grasp over time. I know as parents and educators we sometimes stress over all the little things our toddlers are supposed to know before the age of 2. The reality is most children don’t recognize letters until closer to 2 years old, and by 3 years old they may be able to recognize a few more.
Keeping a daily routine that offers different learning activities to your toddlers is important. When toddlers are repeatedly exposed to activities that promote development they start to become familiar with them over time.
