Any mom wants her baby to learnread as early as possible. Given the memory of children, which is very flexible, it is not difficult to teach a child at all. It is enough to start with the study of letters, and create an atmosphere that will bring pleasure to the lessons of both mother and baby. Let's talk more about how to quickly and easily learn letters with a child.
Learning letters with a child
Game form of lessons
It's no secret that any kid is a real fidget,so to keep the mobile child in one place will not work. Dull or improperly constructed classes will not work, so train the kid only by playing with him. For example, it can be memorizing a letter with an imitation of what sounds are pronounced by animals. After you learn M and Y, say MU together. Letters G, A, B give a wonderful and understandable for the child word "Gav".
Do not forget to also use bright pictures, cards with letters and coloring. Everything should be attractive, interesting and fascinating.
Start with a simple
Maybe you want to "shove" in the headThe child's entire alphabet immediately, and if such a thought has arisen, discard it immediately. The kid is not able to catch the nuances of the alphabet in a couple of days. Therefore, stretch the learning process, starting with the simplest.
It is believed that it is easiest to remember the vowelssounds, so start with the letters A, O, U, I, E. They are not only pronounced without effort, but also remembered by the toddler without any difficulty. Simultaneously, try to make simple words. For example, if you teach the letters A and Y, build the word AU, which is easily remembered by the kid. After learning A, go to the letter P. Together you get the word "DAD", which the child will also easily learn and remember how it is spelled.

Pronounce sounds clearly
Despite the fact that letters in the alphabet have their owntitles, pronounce them as sounds. Do not tell the child "Ka" or "El", but only clearly voice them as "K" or "L". Why? So far, the kid can not think abstractly, so for him immediately there will be a dead-end situation when it will be necessary to read the word. Having learned the letter the way it sounds in the alphabet, the child will apply the knowledge gained while reading simple words, so instead of "Mama" you will hear "Emaem". Do not be surprised: it's you who taught him that you need to pronounce letters like that.
There is nothing more remarkable than playing with cubes, onwhich are represented by letters. When the kid learns the basic letters, it's time to compose short words from them. You can play the game, having competed, which of you will come up with more words and, of course, let the kid win, so that the child feels that he is able to learn the letters and read on the sly.
Do not scold
Even if the child does not succeed, and you losepatience, in any case do not show this. In learning, there is always a place for failure, but only a persistent and patient teacher will achieve the expected results. Remember that it is very easy to beat a child's hunt, and it's unlikely to be interested in a second time, so hide your irritation and make every effort to make the lessons not only useful but also fun for you and your baby.

When do I start classes?
This question excites any mother who plansto teach the child letters. Opinions usually diverge: psychologists recommend postponing studies until the baby reaches the age of 4, while the teachers are convinced that the child can be trained from 2 years on.
In fact, there is no exact answer to this question,because only parents feel when the child is ready to learn. As a rule, you can not miss this moment, so if you notice that the child is keenly looking through the cubes with letters, reaches for books and with interest absorbs new information, start working with it. Observing simple rules, you can achieve great results.
