20+ Fun Ways to Learn the ABCs With Your Preschooler

Inside: A round-up post of 20 + creative and fun ways to learn the ABCs with your preschoolers.

It is the month of literacy here on my blog.

In my past few posts, I have shared a handful of resources that will prepare your child to set sail on their literacy journey in Spanish such as these ABC book recommendations, Spanish reading readiness resources, and more!

Regardless of whether you are teaching your child to read in Spanish, English, or any other language, any emergent reader must be able to identify and pronounce the letters.

Learning the letters is NOT an easy task for preschoolers, not easy at all. In fact, it can be highly intimidating. That’s why I believe children should not learn the letters in the traditional workbook kind of way (don’t get me wrong, these can help), but rather through a play-based approach. 

That’s why I asked some fabulous kid bloggers to share some of their most creative and fun ways to learn the ABCs. 

With that said, let’s get playing and learning the letters!
