How do kids learn to read? At what point and how do letter sounds, rhyming, decoding, and concepts of print all come together to support an early reader? As a teacher and now a homeschooling mom, these skills have always fascinated me so I'm thrilled to be sharing a educational series that will take a closer look at all concepts that fall under the category of early literacy!
Our son came about his Thomas the Tank Engine obsession accidentally but I wonder now if it was inevitable. A neighbor friend lent us a box of hand-me-down wooden trains and the rest was history. Imagine our delight when we discovered that a Thomas Land theme park had opened this past summer in Massachusetts. This fall we took a road trip to check it out and couldn't have been more impressed with the Thomas and Friends amusement park!
One of the absolute best parts of living in the neighborhood where we live is having neighbors with kids around the same age as ours. Some days this means lots of outdoor play together and other days it means we can borrow an amazing tool to create process art. The kids experimented with markers and airbrushing.
