A Letter A Week In Half A Year

May 19, 2010 at 2:43 pm 2 comments

I am so excited about doing this. It’s something I thought of this morning during breakfast.. And some people think they don’t need breakfast!?!

My plan is to do a letter a week for 26 weeks.

I will probably have to wait until fall to get started – right now there is too much going on that I don’t have the proper time to plan. By the end of September our home will be painted, our garden will be on it’s last legs, and we’ll need something to focus on for fall through spring.

It will work like this:

Every week we will focus on learning about a different letter. Week One will be A of course. That week we will do coloring and crafts featuring A, eat snacks that begin with A (apples, asparagus, apricots, etc), and learn about animals that begin with A (aardvark, alligators, ants, etc). For an older child, you could look up states or cities that begin with A, authors that begin with A, and plants, too.

There are a ton of possibilities and I can’t wait to get going! I will be posting the details and hopefully giving some good ideas. I am open to ideas and suggestions as well – in fact, I’d love it.
