I thought that this was going to be a dud week because we had been hunting/missing the postal delivery man daily (seems like when I want something to hurry this mess happens. Please tell me I’m not the only one), but nope. So, I am going to share the fun that we did have with these quick and easy Teddy Bear Cards I made for the week and our Teddy Bear Book.

How We Learn Our ABC’s

Wow! I can’t believe that I have been blogging this long where I am able to share with you the many ways that we have learned our ABC’s. The subject this week for the Early Childhood Education post is Learning the ABC’s, last week we shared Making Friends. today I’m excited to share how I worked with my younger two for learning their ABC’s.

Chalk Art: Flower Power Lowercase Letter Match

Welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday post, where a group of educators and mothers get together and share some free hands on play learning for you to try with your preschool aged kids.

Alphabet Bottle Cap Sensory Bin

Alphabet Bottle Cap Sensory Bin

The toddler and I have been playing with the Alphabets  this month and she has been having lots of fun with them. One way that we played with the alphabets  last week was with a fun sensory  bin.

 

The activities  that we played with last week all used bottle caps so to keep with my bottle cap use I decided that this sensory  bin would use our uppercase  bottle cap alphabets. What a great idea this was.
