I am trying to get Little J to learn his letters. But it’s been… challenging. He has absolutely no interest in letters or numbers or learning, in general. I tried to get him to watch a Leap Frog movie the other (that Big J still loves to watch) and you would have thought I was torturing the poor boy. Like pulling fingernails kind of torture, hard core stuff. So, I’m trying to figure out more ways to engage him in learning without him realizing that’s what I’m doing. It’s Ninja Mom to the rescue…
Since it’s also November and I’m trying to remind my kids that it’s the season of gratitude, we’ve been doing a few activities that focus on what we have instead of what we want. Today, we tried this printable activity. I asked Little J what are some of the things he was thankful for and then we wrote them in the right spot with the letter it started with. Little J will also be helping me teach the rest of the family what it means to be thankful and what some of his blessing are. The rest of the family will then fill out their own ABC printable – kind of like Scattegories, but all the letters will be played at once. We will compare and see if we can get the entire alphabet filled out together.
If you’d like to try and fill out your own alphabet of blessings, you can print your own high resolution copy of the Thankful for My Many Blessings ABC Printable when you click on the photo above. A download window will open and you can save the file to your computer. After you save it, you can print it on your home printer. And here’s the legal shtuff: Feel free to print as many copies as you like, but please pin the image on this page and give your friends and families this link address – not the download page.
