Alphabets are the building blocks of words. Each word that we write in any sentence, essay, short story, poetry, or anything else is made up of several letters joined with each other. It is why alphabets are the first thing any preschooler is taught. The following posters can be used in the classroom for kids to identify each of the 26 alphabets. Along with the alphabets, our poster also includes a picture and name of the animal which starts with the letter.
