Now I Know my ABC's
I have been thinking a lot about teaching Kevin, many of you know I do plan on home schooling my kids at least through 3-4th grade. and on top of that in case that was not controversial enough I am not going to start Kevin in preschool until he is 4. Then I plan on starting a coop with anyone who may be interested, I know most my girl pals now are all starting their little ones in preschool this year at 3 so probably they won't be interested in doing it with me, that is totally non important info. But I just came across a website that is great for right now for teaching the ABC's. (not just the song). Kevin knows the song but has no idea what they mean, until recently he has shown zero interest but now he sees letters and and recognizes that they are letters so it is time to start teaching them separately. the website is called Brightly beaming Resources and it is under the letter of the week category. She has put about 50 ideas on what to do with each letter, including, books to read, poetry, snacks, animals, flowers, and tons of other ideas. It is a great resource if you are looking for something to do with your little one to introduce them to their letters.
