The alphabet is one of the first things kids learn at school. Many kids get to school knowing some letters, such as the ones to write their names.
The teacher should provide natural stimuli during this learning process. Encourage students to look at signs and write names of their classmates, relatives, and even their favorite food are good examples. Inserting games into the learning process enables students to interact and have fun while learning.

Suggestions of approaches for the teacher
First, ask the kids if they know the alphabet.
Ask them if they know what letters are on their first names.
Ask them to write other letters they might know.
Then, ask them to put these letters in the correct order. If they don't know how to do that, it is okay. Go to the next step.
Ask them to tell you all the letters on their names and surnames.
After that, ask questions such as:
CAT starts with the letter ____
HOUSE starts with the letter ____
RAINBOW starts with the letter ____ Then, make more difficult questions: DOG starts with the letter ____ and ends with the letter ______
CHEESE starts with the letter ____ and ends with the letter ____. These are suggestions. You, the teacher, will decide if they fit the students' level.
