For a while I had another blog called AlphaBits where I docmented my attempts at teaching Logan the alphabet bit by bit. Although I haven’t used that blog since the letter T, I have sill been working on letters with the little guy and he now knows just about all of ’em despite some of the original posts below saying otherwise. Should you go to read any of the following, the password is 26letters.
Week 1: Down A Rabbit Hole
Week 2: Books, Baking, and Books about Baking.
Week 3: Cowabunga, Dude!
Week 4: The Toddler Decathlon
Week 5: Easter Egg-stravaganza
Week 6: Footloose and Fancy Free
Week 7: Great Expectations
Week 8: A Handful of Handsome
Week 9: Imagination Library
Week 10: Just for Kicks and Giggles
Weeks 11-13: The Past 3 Weeks
Week 14: Numbers Ahoy
Week 15: If you want to make an Omelette
Week 16: Parks and Recreation
Week 17: QUENCHED
Week 18: Reading on Rapanos Drive
Week 19: Stars and Stripes
Week 20: T is for Theater
So here’s the U for Update for the last 6 letters! Logan can say U, V, W, X, Y, and Z, though W was a bit tricky at first. As far as education disguised as recreation goes, he played with the umbrella you see above, visited his grandparents, used watercolors on a sheet we xeroxed, watched a bunch of Super Why, and went to the zoo with his parents and his Uncle Erik and Aunt Mindy.
Although that last sentence wasn’t nearly as fun as the activities themselves, that’s all you’re going to get! I don’t know, between the umbrella pictures taking a couple weeks to get here and me losing interest in AlphaBits weeks before then the blog just fell apart. Fortunately I still have this blog and I fully intend to keep it going 🙂 This particular post may not be all that in depth, but it may potentially lead you to other ones that are. The password again is 26letters.
All the best, whether you like to read and write or you’re teaching your children to do the same.
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
