ABC's With Emily

Last fall, I wanted to start doing some ABC things with Emily - we started out in a very modified homeschool schedule, but really all we stuck with was doing one activity each week that started with the next letter of the alphabet. I am really kind of sad that I didn't finish this - but between bed rest and a new baby (not to mention hard letters!) it just didn't happen. I am happy about what we did get done and hope she has fun looking at these pictures someday!

That is just awesome Monica!!! How totally fun and rewarding for her! What a great idea! :)

If you ever decide to finish 4 yr old son's name is you could have her write a letter to him if you can't think of anything else for X. hehe!

What a neat idea!! I saw on Eyes of Wonder(before she shut her blog) where she did something similar, but made a book with it. A picture of the child with a caption below.

WAY COOL!!! I love it!! That would make a great scrapbook... an entire book for her to carry around!

Mary Ann said...

I was thinking that would make a cute book too. You have adorable children, Monica.:-)

So super creative!!!!! Love the pics!

Amy said...

I agree, that would be a fabulous book for her as a Christmas gift. You are such a fun and creative mommy!

I love this, I hope you will put them in a special album!! You can then use that book to help teach your other children!

I absolutely love this idea. I may have to steal it!

This looks like such a fun idea! I love it. Do you scrapbook? This would make the cutest little ABC album for your daughter. You could make a little book for her very easily with the photos, a few stickers, and the words under the pictures, just like here. It might also be a cute keepsake if you wrote a little bit about the activities. :)

Looks like Ms. Emily is having the time of her life. I'd say you are a great mom and your kids are lucky to have you.

I love it! :) What a great idea.
You just need:
a Windy day
a toy Xylophone (maybe at a toy store?) and
a trip to the Zoo to see the Zebras! :)
