Spring is arriving late to my neighbourhood this year, so I decided to get a head-start and create a playful alphabet garden for my 3 year old son “Onetime” to plant inside.
I got this gardening activity out several times this week, and each time Onetime seemed to get something different out of it. The first day was about exploring, the second day was more about pretending to plant flowers, and the third time was more about matching the letters to the words.
In all cases, he was having fun, learning to recognize the letters, and by talking with me as he played, incidentally learning letter sounds. All perfect practice activities for an early writer!
