I've been slacking on Emma's "learning time" this summer, but since school has started back this week I thought Emma should get back to it, too!
She knows her colors, shapes (there is nothing cuter than a two yr old saying octagon!), numbers, and can say her abc's, so I figured the next step was writing... but no! My sister, the teacher, told me I was crazy to think that Emma should be learning to write already. So we aren't doing that. We are going to work on her fine motor skills while working on her letters.
Today, she picked up cotton balls with tongs (something Trishia told me to do??). Then she glued cotton balls, macaroni, and beans onto letters.
