C is for…
You may be surprised, but when I gave her a list of things which begin with the letter C…. she decided one of the things she wanted to learn more about was:
going on a Chocolate tour
Churning the Chocolate
frozen hot Cocoa
C is for…. crayons (with Mr Rogers, you know the one !!!), cats, caterpillar, carrots, Changing Colors (chameleons and leaves), clouds, color, chickens, crickets,cactus, caves, Chickadee, cows and calves, crystals, chainsaws,
C is for… Creek and Crayfish and all kinds of Curious Critters:
The way I empower my preschooler to be a self starting learner is to tell her many things that begin with the weeks letter. She thinks about which one she would like to learn more about. Then I facilitate that in any way I can…through books, experiences, art or a craft and exploration. The older kids always get in on the letter of the week no matter their age. The olders find topics of their own interest and dig deeper with books. We find having a letter of the week really guides us into learning things we may not have thought to research.
