Why Use ABC Flashcards and Their Importance For Early Childhood Development?
Literacy development is strong foundational block in education. It affects the way students communicate and problem solve and translate well into independent learning. Alphabet flashcards can effectively support the first stage of literacy development called, emergent literacy. Knowing letter names is strongly related to a child’s ability to remember the forms of written words and to treat words as sequences of letters. Alphabet flashcards aid in memorization and are great for introducing phonics and teaching letter relationships giving children a chance to develop an understanding of the sounds in spoken words and in written letters. These ABC flashcards can help with early education, early literacy, and letter recognition while also serving as an informational resource for parents and children who are interested in learning more about Black inventors and patent holders.
