Today we were doing puzzles and ended up playing an impromptu game with our letter puzzle. We have this Melissa and Doug puzzle (I love Melissa and Doug stuff!). I would say something like, "I'm thinking of a letter that is brown and blue and says 'mmm' and K's job was to find that letter and remove it from the puzzle. I was trying to give him some exposure to the sounds the letters make, but since he only knows a few of his letter sounds, the color clues were really helpful. Once he knows the sounds, we'll probably play this game without color clues.
K doesn't have a strong interest in letters yet, so I have to try to think of ways to make letter activities fun enough to hold his attention. This one was super simple, but it worked!
