October 1, 2013

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:

Chocolate!!!

C is for Creating  … cupcakes, clean up, cookies, cookies, crepes, cocoa, candles, cake, comedy, castles (out of sand or clay!),  Chicken Curry salad, collections…

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.

Booklist:

Children of the Forest

Why do leaves change Color?

Chirping Crickets

where do Chicks come from?

Henny Penny

Chanticleer and the Fox

C is for Centennial .. a Colorado Alphabet

    What a great idea! Wish I’d thought of it when I was in that season of life. And what rich experiences those pics show all those kids enjoying together.
