ABC Smash UP!
This morning we went outside. YES, in our pajamas. Oh, come on, you've NEVER done that??? It was our back yard and nobody had to know - except for all of you ;)
I decided to write a few letters on a poster board and place it at the base of his slide. He perched at the top of the slide with all of his cars - ready to send them flying. He sent the cars down the slide one by one, and we guessed, or yelled out, which letter we thought it would land on. Then we'd discuss how close we were, or how far away from our target we were. Then we would count up "points" (which were written by each letter - randomly chosen) if it landed on a letter. It was a fun way to go over some of the letters that might be hard to remember - or those that look similar, or have similar sounds.
