The Letter "C"

Onward we go in the alphabet....

And, I must say, Colin is improving each time he does a new project. We are way ahead of this in actual letter learning (he is up to writing and learning phonics on "K", if anyone cares) but we are a little slower doing these projects because they take quite a bit of time.

Everyday when we do learning time, though, I can see (if even slight) improvements in his grasp of things. Here is what he came up with for "C":

  • Cats
  • Car
  • Coats
  • Carrot
  • Cookie
  • Clock
  • Cup
  • Calendar
  • Capri Sun

I must say, I was most impressed with Calendar and Capri Sun. :-) I know he knew what a calendar was, but I didn't think he would recognize it. Sooner or later, I am going to realize he knows more than I do....

Did I mention that Colin loves scissors? He would play with them all day if I let him! *grin* And no paper would go unsnipped.....

How cool! I need to do something like this with Reygann. Except I don't have magazines, or newspapers... humm. What does Ethan do while you do this? Brody kinda gets in the way, and I usually end up scrapping things! He is such a little stinker.

I did just change his booster seat and this one has buckles, so maybe I will try again now that I can lock him in! (Usually he is coloring or something and he ends up on the table grabbing the scissors, glue, or markers!)

i need to start doing more fun learning activities like this with amelie--she too is totally addicted to scissors and whenever i scrapbook she must sit next to me with pinking shears and shred everything =)
