We have done so much science this week and almost all of it Rainbow related! Cutie Pie and Sweet Pea had so much fun learning the letter Rr along the way! I hope you’ve enjoyed it so far!
We started the week just talking about words that begin with the letter R, but the boys kept coming back to colors and rainbows that it seemed natural to do whatever we could find that was fun and related to rainbows! Sweet Pea still doesn’t want to have anything to do with the actual letter of the alphabet, but he’s getting lots of letter sound recognition!
The experiments we did this week were mostly rainbow related, but some water experiments snuck in there as well because Cutie Pie was learning about animals in prekindergarten at the same time. Fortunately for us several rainbow experiments were also heavily water-based! (Monday’s Rainbow Patterns) I’ll be sharing ocean experiments in the near future!
I did find some neat Road letters that I printed and set out with some cars for Sweet Pea to play with, but he wasn’t that interested. That’s just something I’ll put out at another time to try to capture his interest.
I’m very interested in hearing what you have used when teaching your children their letters! There is so much on the internet it gets pretty confusing!
