ABC's

This might not be the best place to post this but there's activity here and I'm looking for answers/help quickly.

My 3-year-old is incredibly smart, but for some reason she struggles with learning the alphabet and recognizing letters. I would like to get her an educational DVD or book or toy - ANYTHING to help her out! I've sat down with her time and time again to work on her letters and she just gets dicouraged.

So if anyone knows of some sort of tool I could use to help teach her, I would be forever grateful.

I've Googled and searched Amazon and Walmart and all kinds of places already and have come up with nothing...

the best thing to do is to expose her to print in the every day world. Point out signs and letters in stores, on signs etc

and she is 3, don't push too hard

My DD who just turned 4 has a leappad 2 and has learned TONS from it. I highly recommend it. But as other posters have said, she's only 3. Don't worry too much.

I actually checked that site out a couple weeks ago but the issue is that our internet is very weak/poor and often won't load videos or let you do interactive games and things. :(

Three is old not to know them.

Some kids go to kindergarten without knowing them.

according to who?

I have worked in early childhood for a decade, I assure you 3 is NOT old to not know the alphabet.

DD knew her ABCs (not just the song, but the individual letters) at 16 months.  We did a lot of letter-themed story books, flash cards and fridge magnets.
