So, I’ve had big plans for the letter “w”. There are so many awesome words, Lydia and I have been making a list all week. (It includes walrus and Wall-E.) Anyway, the main thing I wanted to do was “WEEK” and learn the days of the week.
I had it all planned out. I asked one of my bff’s, Becky, who is a kindergarten teacher if they sang a days of the week song. And they do…to the tune of The Addams Family. (I found several videos online if you are a glutton for punishment.) Perfect! Lydia loves to sing.
Then I bought The Very Hungry Caterpillar and was going to read that because the caterpillar eats something new every day.
Then I found some days of the week printables at First School that go along with the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I was going to print those and let Lydia color them. Then we could display the day…every day.
I mean, how creative am I? A song, a book AND an activity! I just knew Lydia would quickly learn the days of the week and continue to be the child prodigy that she is. All thanks to her creative and attentive mother.
Well, we tried singing the song one day for about five minutes. I bought the book and it sat on the end table for about 3 days. After we finally read it, I tried to print off the aforementioned pictures, but our printer didn’t work. Then I decided to wait until Monday so we could start at the beginning of the week. Well. It’s Tuesday and I just remembered all of this.
Oh, well. Better late than never, right?
FYI: I’m going to take a break from ABC’s in December because Lydia and I are doing a daily Advent craft. I’ll post more about it on Wednesday when we begin a new monthly carnival called (are you ready for this genius?) Christmas Impressions! Joyful Impressions (Leigh had a better title than me!) See you then!
