    Your ideas are wonderful! Alphabet learning can and should be fun and an adventure for children through puzzles, hunts, and exposure to it in everyday life. If you want to check your child's understanding of their alphabet and the corresponding sounds please go to my website at http://www.steppingstonestogether.com/faqs/ to gain immediate access to 2 free tests to determine your child's skills. Learning the alphabet is a necessity to learning to read. Start early within a child's tolerance threshold before they reach frustration. I also suggest exposing children to best practices in literacy from in-utero onward. Parents are a child's first and most important teacher. We need to model the importance of reading in consistent actions.

    I have unpublished data showing that kids in the early grades can name randomly presented alphabet letters at the same rate they can write the alphabet with a pencil. For a three-page MS Word attachment describing our study, email Bob at rovarose@aol.com

    Our unpublished on-line K-1 teacher study found that kids can name randomly presented alphabet letters at the same rate that they can write the alphabet with a pencil. Kids who practiced writing until they could do so at 40 letters per minute or better could also name forty randomly presented letters per minute, AND ALL OF THEM COULD READ! We intend to do a bigger on-line study to corroborate this, and hopefully get it published!
