Early Childhood Corner: A is for Apple

The January CELL practice guide discusses how parents can help their preschooler learn to read by becoming familiar with letter sounds. Linking letter sounds with pictures is a great way to introduce your young child to the alphabet. While looking at picture books with your preschooler , have her name the pictures. Repeat the name of the picture while stressing the word’s first letter sound. Have your child repeat the first letter with you. Alphabet books that show each alphabet letter by itself will help your child learn to identify written letters. Access more information about this practice guide “A is for Apple.”
