I had high hopes for these foam letters...you know, using them as stamps with paint, tracing, you name it. However in the end, they were used the old fashioned way - in the tub! And what fun they had (and are still having!) with them. Not only did the kids pick out familiar letters and "post" them on the tub wall, but William did a pretty good job of putting all the letters in order, lined around the entire tub.
Abby, I must say, made a delicious alphabet "soup" with hers!
foam letter pieces. It took a bit of practice for him to understand the point of them, and to understand that due to the fact that they are, indeed, foam, the letters will not look perfect. He did eventually catch on, and made an "i" and and "E".
alphabet matching game, where he had to match various words in the book with his alphabet grid. I read the book slowly, and as he heard the sounds of various letters he pasted them on the grid.
I'm not sure what she is doing here, other than using up all our glue. Yes, we go through tons over here! (The red all over her body is still there...just now it's all over her arms and chest.)
Lest you think it's all work and no play over here, rest assured that we are outside every, single day playing and eating snacks! It's the highlight of our day...even if it is pushing 100 degrees.
Up next week : The Red Carpet. I wasn't able to order this book with all the rest of the books because it's out of print. I was able to get a copy of it at the library, and since it's in now, that is what I'm planning on doing. I think it's going to be a fun week!
