Getting Started

8 ways to get toddlers, pre-k & kindergartners started with the ABC’s

Most children have a natural love of animals, so in many cases they are an ideal way to open up the world of literacy to kids. As children grow from toddlers to school-ready big kids, the Alphabetimals, cute cartoon animals in the shape of letters, help bridge the gap between lovable and familiar animals and the more abstract concept of the alphabet.

 

Many parents and teachers have asked us about the best way to get started using our digital and print media, so below we created a list of our most popular resources that help kids learn important early literacy skills like letter identification, alphabetical order, and uppercase/lowercase matching.

1. Watch the Alphabetimals ABC Song

With over 7 million views on YouTube our ABC song is not only our most popular video, but also the best to get kids excited about ABC’s. Join our friend Albert as he sings, and don’t be afraid to join in parents!

2. Explore our Animal Dictionary

Next visit the online animal dictionary which showcases even more Alphabetimals per letter – we have 10 animals that start with the letter S! Here you can also click on the animals and hear their sounds, or click on their names to hear them read allowed. With over 130 animals, your child is sure to find some favorites.

3. Download the FREE alphabet app

The easiest way to get young kids started with Alphabetimals is to download our free app, available for iOS, Android and Mac Desktop. Toddlers will love to tap the uppercase and lowercase letters to see the animals appear with a funny sound and animation. As they get older and more dexterous they can walk through the interactive Albert and the Alphabetimals story, which provides even more small animations and surprises as well as a cute little story to tie it all together.

Typing Game - Childs Name

Nothing is better to get started with the alphabet than the letters in your child’s name! With our online typing game, you can type your child’s name or any other fun words and see them written in Alphabetimals. Older kids will especially like punching the keys and watching the animals appear. Then once you’ve got your word written on the screen, you can print it out at home, share it digitally, or even get it printed on gift items like t-shirts and coffee mugs through Zazzle’s online store.
