The research from the National Institute for Literacy concluded that the strongest and most consistent predictors of later literacy development are: Alphabet Knowledge, Phonologial Awareness and Memory, Rapid Automatized Naming of Letters and Objects, and Writing Letters.

With this important research in mind and the knowledge of how children learn best, we've created our ABC Twiggles program. 

Alphabet Knowledge

Read alphabet books together. There is a great selection of alphabet books available. Read as many as possible and borrow some from your local library.

Make an alphabet book and alphabet banner together. Use our Alphabet Banner printables available inside our ABC Twiggles member site.

Preschool Activities: 

Sing the alphabet song: Children love to sing and what better song to sing than the "Alphabet Song."

Read to your child: The first step in teaching the alphabet is reading stories to your children. Children will get the idea that books contain print, which is made up of letters.

Introduce the name of letter: There are lots of fun ways to introduce your child to each letter. Sign his or her name to his/her artwork, then point out each letter one by one.
