My daughter turned 3 on may 28th. She can count to 15, sing her ABC,s, knows her colors and shapes and can write her name but she just can't remember her letters besides the ones in her name. Is that normal? Should she know all her letters by now?
All kids learn different things at different paces. Just keep working with her. She'll get it. I've seen kids know all their letters by 2 years and I've seen kids in kindergarden only know a handful of letters.

Most children I have worked with, and including my own, were able to recognize all the letters in the alphabet by the time they were 3, but that doesn't mean that there is a "normal". She may just need a different way of learning it, then how you are presenting it to her at home. She could completely excel in pre-k and kindergarten despite not knowing those basics right now.
