How Do Kids Learn Alphabets?

What is the Importance of Alphabet Learning?

We constructed language on the foundation of oral communication. Memory was induced before the alphabet by rhythm and music rather than written symbols. Humans could rely on more than just sound to communicate a tale after the invention and widespread use of a formal alphabet system. They could also see and write it. The sounds took on the shape of the alphabet.

The alphabetic principle—"the assumption that letters and letter patterns represent sounds in a spoken language"—is based on these ideas. Children are better able to learn that there are "predictable correlations" between sounds and letters when they utilize a written alphabet, which improves their ability to read, write, and speak a language fluently. The possibilities for communication are unlimited once we have mastered speaking and writing a language. We can more easily and accurately convey our feelings, ideas, facts, and memories.
