C is for car

Car. Carrot. Call. Cry. Cousins. Cotton. Crayon. Cup. Curb. Caterpillar. Carpet. Crust. Coconut. Christ.

What do these words all have in common? You bet, the letter C! It was an easy question for Sweet Pea, too. Some days that little 4 year old seems really smart to me!


Sweet Pea’s preschool class covered the letter C by reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric . Their craft for this story was making caterpillar necklaces out of red and green pasta, and enjoying a bit of patterning while they made them.

At home Sweet Pea and I spent lots of time making the hard C sound and listing lots of words starting with C. This has become sort of a game to him and I find we do this quite often throughout the week for letters we have learned. Some times I find him sitting at the table looking at the 3D letters we have taped to the wall and hear him whispering the ABCs. What’s not to love about that?!

He seemed to have a pretty good grasp on this letter, so I got out the cars and we had a lot of fun with them! We even made a letter C out of his car tracks!
