How do you teach a child his ABC’s and 123’s?  Well, that is the very question we asked our fellow bloggers last week.  They linked up some of their best posts to our Discover & Explore linky, sharing some wonderful ideas for teaching letters and numbers.    Here are a few of our favorites:

    Over 30 + years ago when our son was about 1, my husband every night would remove the ABC stitchery I had made and framed from the wall in the our son’s room. The stitchery had an uppercase letter with a item to match A-apple and so on. So this was a bedtime ritual. My son soon learned the alphabet. When our daughter arrived about a year later, she showed no interest in learning the alphabet this way. Who can figure??

      Haha! It goes to show that every child has his or her own learning style! This is why teaching through play is so critical as it allows young children to opportunity to learn in the way they find most inviting or interesting!
