We can begin teaching alphabet and letters to toddlers as little as two. Most toddlers start recognizing letters between the ages of 2 and 3. They identify most letters by the time they are 4. I have created this tiny alphabet book series for kids so they can begin understanding sounds. These books are supported with the uppercase and lowercase letters and have 7 pictures that begin with its sound.
The above video is for letter z and the things that begin with the sound z.
Assembling these ‘alphabet’ books is really easy.
Pages 2-5 need to be printed out. Since the print will be on both sides, I suggest using cardstock. Print front to back. In case your printer or computer does not have this feature, do it manually. Print even numbers first – page 2 and page 4. Then on the back of page 2, print page 3, and on the back of page 4, print page 5. all the pages are numbered.
You only need to cut the horizontal line across the center of all 4 pages. Make sure your pages are set as above. Then staple them from the center. You will need a long-arm stapler for this.
I have created two separate books for q and qu. ‘q’ does not make any sound on its own. ‘q’ and ‘u’ come together to form the sound ‘qu.’ The pictures in both books are the same.
You can complement these alphabet books with a beginning sounds activity that I have prepared for kids. Stick the pictures beginning with the p sound on the p uppercase and lowercase letter.
You can also try these ‘phonics alphabet’ and sound booklets with your little ones.
I am frequently asked regarding the printer I use for my printouts. Since I take more than 500 print outs every month, I use Epson Ink tank which is by far the most economical printer I have ever used. The print quality is also really good for colored as well as black and white.
