    Do you know your alphabet?

    1) Do you know your alphabet?

    2) Can you say the alphabet?

    3) Can you say the counting (this one is incorrect, am I correct?) (up to the point you know, what to say if we don't know up to what number the child can count?)?

    4) Up to what number can you count? (we want to ask a child what number can they count up to?)

    5) Up to what alphabet can you say alphabet?

    Could you please tell me that why my thread was closed? I asked you to correct my sentences and tell me the correct way of writing these sentences. This is what you do ask kids normally.

    Re: Do you know your alphabet?

    I'm pretty sure another member told you in another recent thread that 3 should be "Can you count up to [number]?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Do you know your alphabet?

    1, 2 and 4 are fine. 5 doesn't make sense.

    I close your threads when I consider they have been satisfactorily answered and you need to move on, which is why I'm closing this one, too.

    You may remember that on more than one occasion you have been put into moderation for having too many open threads under discussion at any one time.
