Was your LO able to say all their alphabet?
Recognize the letters in words?
Write their own letters without any help?

She recognized her letters pretty early, they were basically her first words. She could say the whole alphabet song at about 28 months, and she is 3 1/2 now and cannot write her letters yet.

DD knew the alphabet by her second birthday. She was also able to recognize the letter in a word by her second birthday also what begins with each letter, and by 2.5 she knew what sound every letter makes. I find that songs help children learn easier than other methods.

We also sing phonics songs :). We have two that we like, I agree they help lots.

that's about the same as my daughter too, she's able to write all of her letters now but she will be 4 in August. I'm so impressed with her, she's doing great!

DS will be 4 in September. I am very sure that he can write all of his letters, he just doesn't want to, lol. He has started reading though, so I don't push the writing all that much.

She just isn't interested yet, I've been trying to present it to her in different ways for 6 months now and she doesn't care, lol. She just started asking about holding a pencil properly though and she's been very intently working on making sure she's always holding them correctly while she colors, so I think we're getting there :).

yeah that actually is one of the hardest parts! Brooklyn has a few apps on her ipad that are really great for learning all the letters and it shows steps to writing them, like which point to start at and whatnot, and you can buy pencils that go with it so they can trace on the screen, its pretty good!

Which apps? The free ones suck and I've been hesitant to pay money for ones that might also suck.
