Learning the alphabet with the hungry alphabet monster is a fun way for children to learn their ABC’s!
Children naturally learn through play. They explore, experiment, discover and make sense of our world in imaginative and fun ways. This activity encourages play-based learning, so when you help your child learn the alphabet try to engage them in a fun and meaningful approach.
What you will need:
-An empty tissue box.
-Alphabet discs or anything that has the alphabet that can fit into a tissue box.
-Art supplies to decorate your tissue box into a hungry alphabet monster.
You can begin with uppercase letters first as children often recognize them more easily, then move onto lowercase letters before introducing them altogether.
You can try:
-Ask your child to pick up a letter from the mix and feed it to the hungry alphabet monster while saying letter.
-Ask them letter of the alphabets from their name.
-Ask them letter of the alphabets your child engages with from your daily routines and experiences.
-Ask them letters of the alphabet from their favorite characters or things.
-Associating the letters of the alphabet with familiar sounds and interests can also open up opportunities for learning
You can even use the tissue box as a container for alphabet discs!
For this activity we used our Alphabet Matching Pairs.
