Alphabet and Numbers

It’s so funny how my son recites/sings the alphabet with conviction. I usually sing it to them when they get cranky and it is a very effective distraction. At first he can’t pronounce all the letters and finish singing the alphabet but now even if some letters are unclear at least he is able to sing it well.

Now he can identify all the letters of the alphabet but gets confused sometimes with the letters N and M. I even caught him reading the sticker on a box with the word ASTRAL and tried to recite the letters one by one and was surprised that he got it correctly.

I have a confession, I didn’t teach him how to count he learned counting from the DVDs they’re watching as well as the cartoons. There was one random day and he handed me a flash card and at the back he told me it was coffee, picture shows 5 mugs. I asked him to count it and I was surprised that he pointed on the mugs one by one and counted it right!

When we climb up and down the stairs it is the only time I teach him how to count. But surprisingly our stairs is only about 13 steps but he usually counts up to nineteen!

Here’s why,

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 19 10 8 7 6.

Ok. Now it's trouble.

But now, He can count up to twelve and corrected his counting.

Kids nowadays are very intelligent. My mom was even surprised that at the age of two years old he knows all the letters of the alphabet in comparison to our generation. 

How do you teach your kids to learn the alphabet and numbers?
