Spelling Your Name
Blake went through a phase where he was really interested in spelling his name, our names (Mom & Dad), and our dog’s name (Max). I felt like we were singing them or writing them non stop.
During this time, I gave him a pile of index cards with a letter on each one. “Here are the letters to spell your name. Can you put them in the right order? What comes first?” I also did that with each of our names and when he got really good at it, I gave him the letters for all of our names to sort through at once.
Another great idea from Teach Mama is to put the letters on sticky notes. What kid doesn’t love to manipulate sticky notes?! I love they way she did it and the wording she used!
