ABC for kids - teaching the alphabet

ABC for kids is no small matter. And ABC for kids videos can play a big role in teaching the alphabet. Teaching the alphabet is a very important part of a child's education. Knowing the alphabet is one of the first things that is expected of a pre-schooler when she starts getting ready to go to formal school. Luckily these days there are so many interesting ways for kids to learn abc. There are a whole lot of colourful picture books, abc videos, alphabet flash cards, & alphabet games to make this learning memorable and fun.

Learning should be fun and exciting, for learning is a life-long process and unless it is interesting, there will be less motivation to learn. This is particularly true in kindergarten; small children have low attention spans and get bored very easily. The learning methodologies need to be able to hold their attention and excite them. Hence interesting ways of teaching the alphabet should be followed.

The ABC song

One of the fun ways to teach kids abc is to sing aloud the popular abc song. This is very popular as a nursery rhyme. Sing this very often. Slowly encourage children to sing it along with you. Sing it slowly and distinctly so that children can recognize the individual letters. The lyrics for the ABc song are as below:
