16 Months: Letters

Well, everyone in our house came down with a cold in the last two weeks (hence why Little Cutie is in her jammies in every picture in this post). Fortunately, that didn't stop us from learning about letters two weeks ago! (Just delayed mom in posting about it!) The goal wasn't so much to teach the alphabet, but to just start talking more about the letters that are all around us.

A Is for Adventure by Irene Kilpatrick (The Backyardigans)
Dr. Seuss's ABC by Dr. Seuss
The Alphabet Book by P. D. Eastman
A to Z by Sandra Boynton
ABC (Scholastic Rookie Toddler)
Alphabears by Kathleen Hague
Chicka Chicka ABC by Bill Martin
The Hullabaloo ABC by Beverly Cleary
My First ABC: A Lift the Flap Book (DK)
I Spy Little Letters by Jean Marzollo
Discover Letters: The Alphabet in Nature (Baby eyelike)

LeapFrog Fridge Phonics
Little Cutie has always loved this toy. She likes to push the button that sings the ABC's. But she usually doesn't let the song go all the way through, so it just says "A...A...A..." She does like to change out the letters and dances to the tune.

Magnetic Learning: Let's Learn our First Words
I knew this would be too advanced for Little Cutie, but we played with it anyway. She liked putting the letters on the pages and making them stick. We talked about what the pictures were on the pages and played with the magnets.

Mini Foam Alphabet
I found this little alphabet at the dollar store. Little Cutie likes to take apart our large floor alphabet mat, so I thought this little version would be better for her to play with. She loved to take the squares apart and pop out the letters. We talked about each letter, but she wasn't very interested in putting the letters back in the squares. She also put all the letters in a container and stirred them up with an ice cream scoop. She played with this the most during the week.

Mega Bloks ABC Spell!
Little Cutie loves to build with her Mega Bloks. This set is actually meant to build the words to match the pictures on the blocks, but we mostly just built with the blocks and talked about the letters on them.
