Learning to Print Letters and Numbers: The Transformation from Scribbles to the Alphabet
Your child's scribbles have likely started to look more and more like letters, until one day, there they are! The first ones you are likely to see are those in your child's name and other common, important words like "Mom" or "Dad." Children often start with uppercase letters, though by the end of the year, lowercase letters may start to appear. Your child may not necessarily associate these letters with their sounds, but as he approaches five years old, he may start to make the connection between letters and their sounds, or written words and spoken words.
