The alphabet is one of the basic core concepts of a child's language development. By learning the ABCs, a child gains a solid foundation to sound out various letters, to recognize upper- and lowercase fonts, and to identify different words associated with each letter.
All these lessons will develop a child's ability to read words phonetically until he knows them by sight, to string words together to form sentences in speech and writing, and to spell out different vocabulary words. Once a child has memorized all 26 letters, he is on his way to mastering the English language. Get your toddler started with these printable alphabet flash cards.
