  • Sturdy alphabet cards, pointing out letters. Make it fun and it does not have to be anything structured at this age.

  • Work on one letter at a time. And start with a letter that is unique looking and common, like S. (Teaching the difference between O and Q is harder!) Its nice to do a common letter because then when you are out shopping or whatever you can point out letters on signs, etc. My son is 23 months and knows ABCDEFGILMOPRSTUWZ. So we are getting there. Good luck mommy, you'll do great :)

  • It takes over 200 repetitive actions for a child to get something into long term memory so keep singing. If you have cable on demand they have all sorts of alphabet songs and things under kids nursery rhymes and baby boost. At that age I got my son a bunch of foam letters for the tub which stuck to the tub and would give him a handful at a time until he had the whole set. Alphabet fridge magnets are awesome too.
