(Really, more of a PINK letter day!)
Before we begin Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons, I like to teach the alphabet, upper and lower case, with simple letter sounds. The first two so enjoyed making these letters that I plan to continue it with each subsequent child.
Today, Keianna reached a milestone! She began making her “letters”. I print out these openface letters, then fill the outlines with glue. The gluey page is placed on a cookie sheet, and some fun medium is placed in a small container. The little scholar then gets to sprinkle the medium on the paper, creating a unique piece of art. Today, Keianna learned “Mommy A and Baby A…A says aaah”
When dry, her letter will be hung on the wall. She'll add a letter or two a week (each using a different “filler medium”) until she reaches Z!
(Note to Jessica, we say Keianna's name “key-ah-nah”. You were very close! Sometimes we shorten it to 'Anna. (Ah-nah) )
