Don't let him work on it for more than 10 mins, in fact after 5 take a break on to something else and than come back. I you keep at in one long session it will damage his confidence and it will be harder for him to learn it.
So a few, 3 or 4 mins sessions ( that are kept upbeat) spread over the whole night will do so much better.
I am all for writing them out on a4 paper and pinning over the house. Make it fun as possible.

Has your school changed to National Curriculum yet? They are not meant to learn other than through play until Term 3 in Prep, no pencil to paper, no home readers only self-chosen library books. Try not to stress, he's one of the youngest in his class just remember.

I highly recommend the 'ABC' book by Dr Seuss. My DS was obsessed with it at age 2, we read it every night, so as a result could recognise the alphabet from a very young age.

She knew this before school, but I know Chanel is not the typical case... she'd rather spend her days reading or writing than most kids.
If he's having troubles, perhaps the teacher has some good ideas? It also might be a good idea to have Alphabet flash cards so you can quiz him a little? Maybe give him something to help him along. A looks has A pointed tip... B looks like big boobies on a big belly... etc etc. We talked about stuff like this before she started school because she wanted to learn and I think it helped. Obviously just reading with your finger under the words you're reading and all of that stuff will help too!
