Anyway, here’s another way you can sneak in some teaching with your young child. We’ve had these bath-time letters since Jenna was about 16 months old. They have definitely been helping her with letter identification. Bruce had similar toys when he was that age, but they have since been given away. I have two big issues with Jenna’s set, one of which you might have already guessed.
Issue #1 – They are all uppercase letters! That’s definitely a big problem, because lower case letters are so much more important. In my defense, I purchased what was available at the time.
Issue #2 – Jenna keeps pooping in the bath! Each time this happens, we have to bleach out the whole bathtub, including all of the toys and letters. What a pain in the neck.
What about you? Do you have any surreptitious ways of sneaking in letters and phonics throughout the day?
