Want to help your little one become a happy and confident learner? Learning the alphabet is an important and exciting foundational milestone for your little love. Once your child understands the alphabet, it opens up an entire world of learning and literacy and your child can begin to read!
Our Lowercase Animal Alphabet Flash Cards offer a fun and engaging way for your child to become confident and familiar with the alphabet through fun, hands-on, play based learning.
These Flash Cards will grow with your child through the different ages and stages, starting from birth! Babies, toddlers, preschoolers and school age children will all get something different out of our flash cards.
Babies Did you know that newborns only see in black and white until about 3 months of age? Our Flash Cards are purposely designed in black and white to support your baby’s visual development, inviting them to engage, develop their ability to focus, and build their concentration levels. Lay the cards out on the floor for tummy time, or hold them at eye level to catch their attention and watch their eyes pop!
Toddlers Toddlers will enjoy the animals and begin to recognise the letters and sounds. Play games and make it fun! Start slow with a few cards at a time and concentrate on those for a week or so, in short stints, before rotating to some new ones. At this stage it’s all about exposure and making it light and enjoyable.
Preschoolers Preschoolers will begin to master the animals and and grow their confidence with the letters. They may recognise many of the letters and begin to form short words, like their name. The goal for them is to develop a solid foundation and confidence around the alphabet that will give them every opportunity for a successful transition into big school. It’s still important to keep it fun and hands on. Follow their lead and incorporate their interests into activities with the cards as much as possible!
School children School children can use our flash cards at a more creative level by putting together short words, including sight words to help develop their reading skills. Our flash cards offer a fun alternative to desk work and young students may appreciate a fresh approach to learning after a long day or week sitting at school.
