Little Hands Learning
The kids received a box of puzzles that are three- and four-letter word picture/puzzles. I pulled out all of the three-letter word puzzles and gave the kids a few yesterday and today. This evening, they all sat down at different times and then together to try to put them together. Do I think they know how to spell dog, cat, car, fox and pie? No. But I saw them struggling to put puzzle pieces together and then celebrating when they were successful. We even spelled a few words together and Emma repeated "c-a-r" a number of times. According to the package instructions, this particular activity is meant for ages four and up, but I just thought I'd expose them to it and see what happens. I'm really hoping that this gets them interested in puzzles, but it also means I need to go get them new ones.
My sheets are calling my name, so that's all for today.
