ABC Indentification

It’s been about one and a half months now since we began teaching Jenna her ABCs.  She’s twenty months old, and doesn’t really have the capacity to sit down for a formal assessment where I ask her to identify all of the upper and lower case letters, so I can’t report an exact percentage of what she now knows.  But there have been lots of opportunity for informal assessments. 

A few days ago at Bruce’s soccer practice, Jenna saw a bag from Borders and correctly identified all of the letters (although she still says “Ro Ro” for “R”).  Last night in the bathtub, she named all of the letters that floated by except for “H” and “G”.  She really seems to have the uppercase alphabet down.  Now we just need to keep working on lowercase letters and sounds.
