As a former teacher, I can't help but want to have some kind of lesson throughout the week.  So after checking out a few inspirational blogs, I came up with a way to teach H a new concept each week.  We're starting with letters, and then I'll probably start on numbers, shapes and colors.  I thought this would be a fun plan to do each year, adjusting the level accordingly.  So here is my plan for ABC's: one letter each week, with a new word each day.

So each day we incorporate one or more of the following:
  • video--most from Sesame Street
  • art project--using printables mostly from twistynoodle.com 
  • songs--any songs that promote movement or incorporate the letter of the week (pandora's toddler channel is great!)
  • books--we go to the library once a week and check out books on next week's words (there are free books online too!)
  • games--use toys he has or online games such as fisher-price.com
Check back later for my post on letter A to see what we did for the first week!

  1. That's a great idea! Maybe I'll see what you do each week and then copy it the next ;)

    1. Finally worked my way through the alphabet! Only took a year--I'm posting x, y, and z tomorrow if you want to check the list out. It's under infant and toddler activities, then educational activities.
