Who said that learning the alphabet was a boring activity?

Learning the alphabet is an important step in our children's literacy development.  
  • Alphabet knowledge is naming the letters of the alphabet and recognizing the letter symbols in print (Johnston, 2004). 
  • Recognizing the alphabet is one of the most accurate predictors of early reading success (Johnston, 2004; Sayeski, Burgess, Pianta, & Lloyd, n.d.). 
  • In order to learn to read, a child must know most of his letters, but not all are necessary in the earliest stages. In order to progress, however, he must know all 26, both uppercase and lowercase (Temple et al., 2005).
