Words and letters
      ...a few examples
  Before children start school, it would help if they knew...
Illustration by Andrea Elovson, from The Kindergarten Survival Handbook That books, newspapers, letters, magazines and notes are words written down
and tell us things.
  • That words are written down using letters.
  • That the letters are called the alphabet.
  • That numbers, like three, six, and two
    can also be written down with numerals: 3, 6, and 2.
