This idea came from Ada’s three (brilliant, loving and fun!) teachers. They suggested we try this as a way to help her start making connections between words and objects over the summer. Ada would have us read to her 24 hours a day if she could, so we have encouraged her to learn more about the letters as she shows interest. We are so excited for her to explore books on her own when she is ready. She will devour them! We used markers and card stock to make big labels around our house. Painter’s tape looped on the back makes them easy to remove from the walls. It feels a bit like an ESL classroom around here, but she seems to love it.

A terrific idea that would work for someone wanting to learn a second language, too! Ada is blessed to have a sweet mom like you!
