Growing my Little Reader

Since I've entered to world of blogging, I've "met" so many great teachers who work with preschool children and I am so impressed. One of my favorite blogs is: 
The Moffatt Girls

Annie is a stay at home mom (yes, I'm jealous) and former elementary teacher (she must have been AWESOME!) Her blog and shop has so many fabulous ideas for growing young readers. I recently came across a post of hers that outlined the activities she was going to do with her toddler this summer. So, I had to give it a try with my little reader.


My little guy just loves to read (even mommy's books!)

I just couldn't resist trying her activities out with my little guy. He had a blast!  Here he is at work, he had a huge smile on his face and kept saying "More ABC's mommy!"
 And here he is matching the cut out letters to those on the page.  When he wasn't sure, he match it to a letter on the board that was the same color (Hey, I'll take that!)

In her original post, Annie has her board on a magnetic cookie sheet and each of the small letters have magnets on the back. That will be my next step when I head out shopping this week, his little arms kept sliding some of the letters off of the board!

Here is a link to the original post:

Thanks Annie, for helping me grow my reader!

  2. Annie is a blessing!

    I wanted to let you know that I have tons of word study *freebies* on my blog that I would love for you to come check out. Once your little one gets a bit older I bet he would love the sound boxes activity we do with Stretchy Snake. Do you know about the Beanie Baby Decoding Strategies?

    I am the newest follower of your adorable blog. =)
