OnSugar Blog: Alphabet Throw

Aug 28 2010 - 4:00am

Lots of moms like to think out loud! Hansel and Gretel [1] shared a lil learning game on her OnSugar blog, Hansel and Gretel [2].

It is so exciting when your child recognizes letters and numbers. Children are sponges and soak so much information and their memories are unbelievable, which can sometimes bite you on the backside.

When I noticed that Tyler was taking a real interest in letters, I began to think about some five minute learning games that would encourage this curiosity and recognition of letters. It was important that I waited until Tyler was clearly interested and ready, otherwise it would mean nothing and he would only get frustrated.

One simple alphabet activity that stems back to when I was teaching 'Early Years', is quick, fun and easy.

All we need is three paper plates, three catching bean bags and a thick texta.

See how to set up the game by reading the rest of the post here [3]. Want to see more? Start following OnSugar blog Hansel and Gretel [4], or start your own OnSugar blog [5]. We may just feature your content on LilSugar.
