How to Write Alphabet Letters By Nannette Richford Write Alphabet Letters If your child shows an interest in writing, you may be eager to teach him to write the letters of the alphabet, but before you do, there are several things you should consider.
Erin Buhr The alphabet is one of those hallmarks of the preschool years. Just about every kid dances into Kindergarten confidently able to sing their ABCs and recognize at least some letters.
