Not knowing the alphabet by 3 does not in any way mean that your child is slow or destined for illiteracy. Just keep showing him numbers and letters every day when you are out running errands or whatever, and work on puzzles, games and books at home.
I think media is great and helpful but only in moderation, especially if your only goal with it is to drill preschool academics. I read my daughter a lot of books but I focus more on story books for her age, not letter/number drills. We work on it a little every day but in ways that are fun. I don't think any of the kids in his class can recognize all the letters.
All across London, they emerge from Tube stations and the doors of puttering buses into the cold street; bags slung over their shoulders and taut stomachs beneath thick winter overcoats.
You wouldn’t recognise them, as they head for freezing upstairs rooms in tatty gymnasiums and slink into backstage theatre doors.
Ask most people, even today, to name some of hollywood's sexiest men, and name's like Marlon Brando and James Dean will still crop up, some 60 year's after they first set flame to the silver screen.
What come as a surpirse (or not, depending on how 'switched' on your are) is that both Dean and Brando were quite open about being bisexual, although those interviews were most certainly NOT the one's broadcast on the BBC.
For future readers concerned about the same issue, I will counter that while 3.5 year olds love singing the alphabet song, it is not actually age-appropriate for them to know the letter by sight or to be able to count beyond 10. Do a fun activity every day that involves anything you want him to learn, but if he gets bored, loses attention or refuses, then stop.
Since he was two months old, I (or his dad) have read to him three times a day.
If you are not doing this already, I highly recommend you start. My son is 2 and knows the alphabet and can count to 15 in English and Spanish but then again he also refuses to learn to potty train.
The accompanying music video features the six-piece at the airport ready to fly away on holiday, while other scenes see them in a series of shots surrounded by colourful framing.
Alphabeat recently told Digital Spy that they have returned to the "old-school piano, bass guitar and drum" sound of their debut album for their new material.
I think this might be a little earlier than "usual," but I am convinced he was able to do this because he has been read to at least three times per day since he was two months old.
