The early literacy skill called letter knowledge means learning about the letters of the alphabet. But even before children learn actual letters, they can begin to notice differences in things, like shape, size, and color. You can practice letter knowledge with your little one by pointing out differences in his or her toys throughout the day, looking for shapes, letters, colors, etc. For example, find all the round objects in the tub toys during your child’s bath, or find the first letter of your child’s name in letter blocks.
