Thanks to this post on Jodie’s* blog, Jackson is learning his alphabet. Finally!
We play a matching game with the tiles. I pick one out and give it to Jackson. If he knows the letter, he says it to me. If not, I tell him what the letter is. He takes it to the set of Leap Frog Fridge Phonics magnets that are on our refrigerator and searches for the letter that matches his tile. When he finds it, he puts the magnetic letter into the Fridge Phonics toy and listens to the “Every Letter Makes a Sound” song.
(Not sure what that crooked grin means.) He’s usually very proud of himself to find the matching letters and really likes to play this game. I like that it gives me a few minutes to pack lunches or tidy the kitchen while he’s distracted with the letters. Thanks for the inspiration, Jodie!
*Please keep Jodie and her daughter Parker in your prayers. They’ve been in the hospital all week due to seizures, high fever, infections and a whole host of issues. You can get updates by reading her blog.
