How to teach English alphabet

In writing, legibility depends on maintaining the crucial contrasts between the letters. To teach the children to maintain these contrasts in their writing, you should then draw their attention in distinguishing apparently similar letters. For example, you can introduce similar letters like ‘h and n’, ‘p and q’, ‘l and i’ etc. This is best done when similar letters are presented in groups. For instance you can group them like this “a, o, e, c, b, d, p, q, g” and “m, n, h, r, f, i, l, t, y, u”.



Another important aspect is to make the strokes in the right direction. From the very beginning the teacher should guide the students to make the strokes in the proper direction. Teacher should show where to begin a letter, how to move and where to end. This is really crucial aspect for developing good handwriting.

There are 44 sounds in English and you should teach your children the difference of each sound during the time of teaching alphabets. Because teaching alphabets is not just restricted to writing English Alphabets, it is in fact the base for reading, speaking, and listening skills.
