Learning the ABC's
I've been working with Sadie on her ABC's. Our main goal right now is letter recognition & a little bit of what sounds each letter makes. I print up a letter worksheet. We work on writing the uppercase & lowercase letter. Then we cut out pictures from magazines that start with that letter. See above for letter B: baby, bike, Blue, bear. Sadie has responded to this really well. It's great for us to sit down & have even just 10 minutes where all my attention is focused on her. We've been taking it slow, just one letter per week. At bedtime, when I read her a book, I also like to ask her to point out specific letters....both upper & lowercase.
