Krew and I have been working on learning his letters. He is starting pre-school in the fall and I'm not super concerned that he knows them perfectly but I would like him to at least have a taste for them. I learned when I potty trained this boy that when trying to teach him something- especially something important- its go big or go home :) So I prepared, (much more than I did for potty training) I got a coloring book with letters in it, my wonderful mom sent me a dry erase book with letters in it, I got crayons and markers and away we went. I went over a letter per day with him and It just wasn't sinking in. I'd ask him Krew, what does A say? and he would say "DUH" or what does O say? and he would say "Aaaaa" So I decided that we needed to spend more time on each one and perhaps do some activities that he would remember. I decided I would take pics of what we did and make him a book of everything we did associated with that letter. Last week was the letter D. Krew learned how to get Dressed, We went to lunch with Doug, our Dad :), Krew wore his Dinosaur shirt around:
We went thru all of Krew's toys and picked out the toys that started with the letter D because I realized there was quite a few.
After we picked out all the toys Krew said "hey momma- I want the D-D-diggers to D-D-dig!" I was quite impressed and knew that I needed to make this a "big deal." So as I was racking my brain of something to do I remembered that I saw this fun thing to do- Fill the tub up with snow! After 5 heavy shovelfulls of snow our bath tub was full, Krew was happier than a lark, and those diggers dug until they were dead! :) - such a great idea to keep him occupied all day long!!
We did some Dancing. . .
This is one of Krews' fav. treats. . . He likes to Dip.
This week we're working on E and I have lots of great ideas for this letter! -NOT!- All we have done so far is make some eggs! wahoo! Hope he remembers the fun he had doing that :)
End of April- May
