Learning the alphabet actually has very little to do with learning to read, since letter names are labels - they don’t necessarily reflect how each letter sounds.

46. The Alphabet

Learning the alphabet actually has very little to do with learning to read, since letter names are labels - they don’t necessarily reflect how each letter sounds. Nevertheless, children need to learn the alphabet, and the classic ABC Song is the best way to do this. Simply sing it to your child to begin with. They can learn it as a song long before they are able to recognise the letters. Later on, you can sing the song while looking at the letters


Tip: If your child is at the point where they are learning phonics at school, use the letter sound to describe a letter, rather than its name, until reading is firmly established.
