Having Fun with the Alphabet

This week, our Little Saints theme was Alphabet Fun. It was a very fun week and a great kickoff for our journey along the alphabet path starting next week.

Here is a glimpse at a few of the things we did:

We read:

The girls (and in some cases the boys!) played lots of games and made crafts relating to the alphabet including:

Alphabet Cereal Match

Pudding Play
(Writing letters in pudding!)

Alphabet Puzzles

"On the Coconut Tree"

This is proving to be a very challenging year, educating 4 young children at home, with a (soon to be) toddler in the midst. But, as my dear friend Trina suggested, I keep repeating to myself, "I LOVE this! I LOVE this! I LOVE this!!" ;) And you know what, it IS a lot of work keeping up with it all, but I DO love it! Homeschooling can be so much FUN!


  1. It's so fun to see the same things on your blog, only different! (if you know what I mean) We got those Alpha Bits and they played with them (it's missing a lot of letters we needed for names!) But the kids don't like it!! So we have a whole box of sugar cereal that no one likes!!

    Kind of funny!
    I'll have to post a picture of our craft wall, you'll recognize the same but different crafts!

    I'm off to post our Holy Name of Mary day!

  2. I know what you mean about the Alpha Bits... We were missing quite a few letters too, so instead of writing their names, I had the girls make pairs of letters. Rascal joined in and worked on making words... He was very creative and would make the letters he needed by modifying the ones he had! It was cute!

    I would love to see a picture of your craft wall!

  3. I feel like I'm reliving my days here...LOL! We've been doing very similar things as you.

  4. That looks like so much fun!! I love the pudding idea!!
