ABCs

I have always loved letters: their shape, their sound, their purpose. My once playroom has an alphabet theme and I sorta collect alphabet books. I wanted to pass on this love of letters to my kids so when my first child was preschool age I started “The Letter of the Week”. We focused on a different letter each week and did activities, recipes, crafts and learning games all around that letter. We had so much fun that I did it with my next child and this fall I will do it again with my third child. This section of the blog is dedicated to the Letter of the Week.
