Actually I have been in "Bookworm" status and have had my nose in my nook! I set a goal to read 52 books this year and so far, I am on book # 14... that is averaging about a book a week! I'm doing good!! =) I knew it wouldn't be so hard... I LOVE to read!! It is just about finding the time to read and finding good books to read!
Anyhow, I have been working on letter identification with my own little munchkin as well as my munchkins in my classroom. I am amazed at how quickly my little one is picking up on things!
Every few days, I ask her to look for certain letters or I will have her just name a few that she may know. I will probably be changing out the sheets this weekend to give her new letters (and maybe numbers) to find.
To make it a little more challenging, I also asked what sound the letter made and asked them to name one object that began with that letter.
I believe that the best learning activites are the ones that are spontaneous and simple! Each one of these activities has been a huge hit!
