Run To Your Letters

By Melanie Fleury, edHelperBaby

What Your 2-Year-Old is Learning
           Your toddler is learning so many things now. This is the perfect age to start introducing shapes, colors, letters, and numbers. While she may not be able to recognize all of them, each day will help her to retain more and more knowledge.


  How Your Toddler Behaves
           Your toddler is probably very energetic. She learns best by doing rather than just hearing you tell her things. A lot of her learning is tactile, learned by touch. A majority of it is probably kinesthetic as well, or learned by activity. Teaching ABC's can be far more geared toward your toddler than just singing the song.


How To Prepare
           On a wonderful sunny day , it is a nice reward to play outside with chalk. With your normal outdoor chalk, draw a few letters of the alphabet onto your driveway. Step on each letter as you say the name of it. Your toddler will be observing you to see what you are doing.


The Game
           There are several things you can do with your chalk letters. You can call out the letter while your toddler looks for it. You can also ask your toddler which one she is standing on. Another variation is to have her throw a ball or beanbag on letters that you call out. As she gets better at recognizing the letters, you can add more letters.


My toddler loves
           This activity really appeals to my toddler's need to run around. It is also a great way to get out of the house for an afternoon. My toddler loves to find the letters, but she also loves me to tell her how to find the letters."Hop to the A" or "Run to the B."  Find what your toddler loves and make learning fun!
