For preschoolers, learning the ABC’s requires a new way of thinking. They need to learn how to process letters and letter sounds differently and very carefully. Sometimes we use an uppercase letter, and sometimes a lowercase letter. Letter orientation is critical too. If we flip a “b” one way, it becomes “d”; if we flip it another way, it becomes “p” or “q.” This isn’t true for objects that young children play with. Many letters have more than one sound, further complicating the learning process.
In this webinar, Dr. Laura L. Bailet will explore the key reasons that learning the ABC’s can be challenging both for children AND their teachers. Attendees of this live, interactive session will learn how to:
• Review the ABC challenges
• Describe developmentally-appropriate strategies to increase ABC knowledge
• Become familiar with the key benchmarks for this important milestone
Join us to learn current best practices for enhancing alphabet knowledge in young children and gain new ideas and strategies for your classroom. Dr. Bailet will field your questions after her presentation. This webinar is designed for preschool and kindergarten educators, administrators, and librarians as well as ESE professionals.
