This weeks teaching lasted me about 1 1/2 weeks due to me working so much and not being home to actually sit down and teach her the letter enough for her to learn it well.
We first started with T for turtle, since she thinks they are such cute animals, I knew she would love to know that turtles started with the letter T! We actually got to go to the Corpus Christi Aquarium and she saw a HUGE one, swimming in the water and she loved it! I think it was probably as big as she was, so that was definitely pretty neat!
T was also for tasty since she will try JUST about anything! I would ask her to tell me if something was tasty that starts with a T, and she would grab something that she loves to eat and tell me “that’s tasty!”. One thing that amazed me was much she has tried in her short little life of just being two years old. One of her favorite things when we go to restaurants to eat is the spicy salsa, and people are so amazed that she loves such spicy stuff at two years old. When my parents took her to out to eat when they were on vacation not to long ago, they ordered SUPER spicy/hot shrimp, and Brielle definitely loved it!
T is for twirling was the third thing that we focused on. Brielle loves to pretend to be a Princess, and they twirl a lot. So I would say “well Brielle, can you tell what the word twirl starts with?” and she would go “t for twirl” and she would spin, and spin, and spin.. haha! It was so cute to dress her in her poofy dresses/skirts and let her practice her new word to the fullest!
I think the last thing that I really focused on was teaching her that her toungue started with the letter T! She LOVED showing me her tongue, and had this weird thing where she would actually lick things using her tongue. She wouldalso say “T for tongue” and show me her food (which was definitely not the most appealing thing I have ever seen, haha!) . She actually asked her cousin Emma to show her, her tongue and they definitely touched tongues (GROSS!) lol! Hey, she is a toddler now so she gets away with crazy things, but they are so cute together.
Overall, this week and a half was a great learning experience and I cannot wait until we get to start learning the letter U!
We also did reading, writing, coloring books, puzzles, and tons of fun activities while learning this letter.
Here are some pictures from the week!
