Childrens Alphabet Blocks from Kaplan Toys

Alphabet blocks from Kaplan Toys make learning fun for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, helping foster developmentally appropriate skills with educational products that have been trusted by parents, teachers, and child development experts for years. Our alphabet blocks are designed to sharpen emerging senses and skills and encourage young children to further develop their curiosity about the world around them. Help young children learn their ABCs with quality wooden alphabet blocks that are durable and easy for young hands to hold. Alphabet blocks are a great way to get kids engaged in learning letters and putting them together to spell out basic beginner words, fostering a love of spelling and language skills that will serve them well throughout their lifetime. Wooden ABC blocks are also great for building towers and working on other fine and gross motor skills.

Alphabet blocks with just one letter on each block are a great toy to have for your preschool child. You'll find she can learn a great deal through playing with them, especially with you. Not only can she become the architect of great buildings, roads or skyscrapers (which are fun to knock down), but building can also help budding coordination skills.

When you work with your child, ask her to hand you blocks by using the name of the letter on them. As she picks up blocks, ask her to tell you the name of each block, also. Before beginning to build, help put the blocks into sequence in a long row beginning with Aa. Then say or sing the ABC song 2 or 3 times as you touch each one. This will help her to learn to recognize each letter as she plays with the blocks. You can also talk about the shapes of each letter. Point out those lower case letters that have tails that hang down or tall sticks that reach up. Don't forget to talk about the sizes of the boxes as you play.

This will help increase your child's vocabulary as you choose big, little, middle size, bigger, smaller, large, tiny, etc. blocks. Once she knows the letter's names and sounds, you can begin to spell out simple words placing the boxes next to each other in what can be humorous configurations.
