We have been seeing a lot of chickadees as well as blue jays recently in our back yard and this inspired my son’s bird preschool letter activities for the week. My daughter also joined in with her own consonant blends activities to help her with her phonics. My son’s learning style is completely different from my daughter’s- he hardly tolerates any alphabet worksheets and so my all the preschool letter worksheets that I did with my daughter are a no-go.
This week’s #toolsforlearning challenge is magnetic letters! Naturally I wondered how I was going to pull this off and if C would even look at me and our activity.

- Place all the magnetic letters on a flat surface so that they are visible.
- Allow your preschooler to pick a bird card and then find the matching upper case magnetic letter.
