Start easy and ask her if she wants the Red or Blue shirt, toy or whatever.  If she has no idea one from the other, show her.  Let her tell you the color to get it.... even if you just told her it was blue.  She will learn it quick weather she means to or not.  The order mine learned them was colors, letters, then numbers.  My 3 year old still gets 2 and 5 confused and 6 and 9 confused, but she can read 3 and some 4 letter words easily.  Every kid learns in their own way..... she'll get it.  Don't forget to be encouraging even on the tiny tiny things!

i would have like flash cards with her favorite cartoon characters or animal on them and have one on one time with her . and dont try to much to fast or do it for a long period of time at a time because they will loose what little interest they have

i agree with Danielle about not doing too much at a time...some children take a little more time than others. some just do it when they feel good and ready. if she has a favorite show or toys, use those at your look dora is wearing a red shirt, or use a character she likes, show her that her costume has red hair) or if she likes to eat cheerios say cheerios starts with C...dont worry, everything comes in time. before you know it she'll be saying her alphabet on her own, colors, etc. I hope I helped even a little. Take care.
