What Is Letter Knowledge?
Letter knowledge is recognizing the letters and knowing the letter names and sounds. Young children gain an awareness of letters as they play with alphabet shapes, start to notice letters in books, and realize that their name begins with a specific letter.
A child who has achieved letter knowledge recognizes all the letters of the alphabet, in both capital letter and lowercase form, and she knows the names and sounds of each.
Letter knowledge–one of the first stepping stones on the path to reading–develops as a child is exposed to letters through play and through planned activities.
