Lowercase Letters and Reading
One of our summertime goals was to help Grace learn to write the lowercase alphabet (she learned the uppers last summer). Just like teaching her to write the numbers and uppercase letters, we utilized Kumon's "My First Book of..." as our guide - they're such a pleasure to use and Grace loves the drawings in them. I'm happy to report with just one day to spare before school starts our goal was accomplished - yea for Grace!
In other news... being the fourth Tuesday of the month, it was "Reading to the Dogs" day at the library. Grace lucked out - due to low attendance this time around she was able to read a book to each of the three dogs that participated. One of the books that she brought from home was, "Blue Hat, Green Hat" by Sandra Boynton. Each time she reads it she laughs hysterically at the turkey and his "oops" - pure silliness for sure!
