My daughter is 3.5 years old, very active and has a wide vocabulary for a little girl. The only problem is getting her to learn her ABC's. She knows her colors, shapes, and 1-10, but she has no interest in learning her alphabet. I am hoping she is not dyslexic cause me and her father both have dyslexia. Any advice?

Thanks Vicki! I have tried playing games with her like eye spy, but it does not interest her. However, I have not tried the letters in the bathtub though, which sounds like it would work for her, so I am willing to try it. I wish I remembered the way my mother taught me, but its been a while. Thanks for the input :D

Maybe play games that are fun. How about alphabet soup? Purchase some letters maybe from a dollar store? And put them in her bath water and ask her to find a letter. Or eye spy with my little eye the letter "c" and make a word and ask her what she spelt? Place all the letters on the floor and put some music on and ask her to find the letter before the music stops?

If both you and your husband have dyslexia im assuming that you know your letters how did you learn them? Maybe you can teach your daughter the way you learned?

Hope this helps!
