I have been on the look out for activities that would allow us to incorporate a little bit of letter writing and reading. As my little girl and I were making some banana bread this afternoon, I realized we had the perfect opportunity. Using my finger I wrote her name in the pan I was buttering. We followed with her brother's name, then did a simple "sound it out" word (sun), and then the more complicated word "Daddy", which uses the "y" that says "ee".
She was so amused that she decided that she wanted to write in the flour on the cookie sheet as we were ready to add it to the pans. This picture from my post about sugar cookies explains how we came to have flour on the cookie sheet.
Do you have any fun every day ways to practice letter formation and reading words?
