KNOWING THE ABCs
Teachers Call This Skill:
Children must learn the names of the letters of the alphabet and their shapes before they can start reading.
Children's knowledge of letter names and shapes is a strong predictor of their success in learning to read.
Knowing letter names is strongly related to children's ability to remember the forms of written words and their ability to treat words as sequences of letters.
