Alphabet Inspiration

Posted In: All posts, Reading

Research tells us that teaching young children to recognize the names and sounds of the letters in the alphabet can greatly improve their success with reading later in life. Working with your children on these basic skills can be a playful and lighthearted experience for your entire family.

LMNOP (a wonderful online magazine) has just released their 7th issue and it is entirely dedicated to the alphabet and the written word. It features the word on kid’s fashion, hands-on toys to help you learn your vowels, and some of the globes best a-b-c toys, games, books and art. They also have a great blog that will keep you inspired in between issues.

I was so excited by LMNOP’s latest issue that I decided to build on their alphabet momentum and round up some fun alphabet experiences from around the web for you to enjoy with your family.

Please add to the list and share the alphabet love!

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
