Hi sowndarya, 1) start with the alphabet rhyme. 2) once he knows to recite the rhyme, use floor jigsaw puzzles or block puzzles that have alphabets with pictures. Fixing the jigsaw puzzle a few time will make him remember the sequence. 3) to learn alphabets, it's not necessary to go in alphabetical order. So group the alphabets that look similar such as (b,d,p,q) , (I,j), (y,g), (n,h,m) etc. Choose one alphabet at a time and make him circle that alphabet in magazines or newspapers. Join him in the fun and play a game to see who finds the most. But to start with, use only the headlines in the newspaper as the small print in the main news may confuse your child. 4) visual cues will always be easier for children to interpret. So try drawing a picture using an alphabet. For e. g draw a butterfly using B I. e write the mirror image and the actual alphabet side by side touching each other to make butterfly, draw a snake with an S, an umbrella using U, an orange with O, a cat face with C and so on.. Use your imagination. The drawings will help him remember the alphabets. But ensure to darken the alphabet in the drawings to make it stand out. 5) use hand signs to show alphabets.. For e,g show V with fingers like how you show victory, make O with fingers curved, L with forefinger and thumb etc. Again use your imagination. 6) show alphabets in logos such as BMW, VW (Volkswagen), H (Honda), A(Acura) and so on... 6) use play dough to make alphabets 7) make an alphabet book using one page for each alphabet and decorate the page with beads, pasta, paint, stickers, yarns and also make drawings of things that start with that alphabet. 8) after your child learns to identify few alphabets, play treasure hunt by hiding the alphabet cards or fridge magnets (easy to find out). Make it all fun.. He would love to know more about them. Most of the times children show you how they learn things. My son used to turn the alphabet fridge magnets around and used to tell me that if M is inverted you get W, the mirror image of b is d and so on. That's when I got the idea of sorting the alphabets with similar strokes. He started looking out for alphabets in car logos, he started to find hidden alphabet shapes in patterns. That's when I started drawing pictures for him with hidden alphabets within the picture. So provide him with few resources and observe your child what he does with them. He will direct you how to teach your child. Good luck sowndarya.
