Since Sophie learned her letters so quickly, I decided to test her attention span and see if she was ready for my alphabet games.
I unpacked the Garanimals ABC and just set the board out on the floor. I showed her the alphabet cards and let her identify some of the letters for me. I asked her to find a few on the board, demonstrating how to match them up, and then I left her alone.
A few minutes later, I checked on her, and she was doing great.
Today, I pulled out the "rainbow" cookie sheet and the magnet letters. We put them in order together...we sang the ABC song (26 times ;) ), and she found the correct letters and put them in their spot.
I love her little voice. "Where aaaaaaare you, letter E? Right there!"
I helped her spell "Sophie".
She thought she was pretty awesome after finishing all of this hard work. I did, too. :)
