Alphabet Knowledge Begins with the Child

Updated: Mar 7

"Developing an interest and connection to the alphabet begins with the child and their world. It begins with what is important to them in the here and now. It doesn’t depend on the alphabet curriculum chosen by the school. It is not a matter of what activities, songs, and crafts were completed. The child’s motivation depends on what is applicable to their world, and what is important and relevant to them." ~ Stacy Benge, The Whole Child Alphabet: How Young Children Actually Develop Literacy published by Exchange Press
