a, b, c, d, f, g, j, h, k, lmnop! q, r, s, u, v, y, and z! Now I know my ABCs! Next time you will sing with me!
My dislike of noisy, electronic toys is no secret, so I refuse to credit any of this knowledge with Joseph's obsessive use of the "Phonics Bus" while we were in New York. Robyn tried to send us home with it, but I was afraid we might drive off the road if we heard one more electronic child sing the alphabet.
Joseph is getting into singing all kinds of songs and we often hear him practicing some of our recent favorites when he's playing on his own: "I've Been Working on the Railroad," "The Sidewalks of New York," and "The S.S. Bathtub." Also, "Papagena/Papageno" from Mozart's Magic Flute.
He is also 1/26 of the way to reading. He unfailingly picks out the letter "O".
Okay, enough bragging. He's also scattering his play dough all over the floor in between scientific attempts at making pancakes.
