HOW TO TEACH YOUR TODDLER: LETTERS, NUMBERS & MORE

Teaching your toddler through song and dance or bright, colorful play-type activities is the ideal way to start. I have used a combination of reading, singing, dancing, flash cards and daily conversation to build my toddlers' confidence and familiarity with colors, numbers, letters, sounds and words with each of my six eldest of seven daughters.

ABCs & NUMBERS: TEACHING TODDLERS

Learning the alphabet and how to count is a fundamental step for every toddler - these two basic learning tools set the foundation for a bright future of life-long learning. It is often recommended to introduce your child to letters and numbers from as early as 6 months, however, this should be limited to songs, music and dancing the "numbers song" or "ABC song".

STORY-TIME SPECIAL: READING WITH YOUR TODDLER

Starting early with daily reading in a fun, exciting and loving fashion is one of the best ways to accelerate your child's learning abilities. Choosing a particular time of day to have story time with your toddler is also a good ideal this means they know what is expected of them and what to expect of you at that time - it is reading time, a time when little angel and mommy sit together and look at books and perhaps read a few.
