FREE Printable: Pocket Chart ABC’s

I posted a week ago or so, showing the youtube ABC links that MBug likes to watch.  She is still a little obsessed with the Phonics Song 2; well, “obsessed” may not be a strong enough word! :)

Lately, she also has taken to our pocket chart.  If I have something posted for ALuv or NJoy to do, she wants to take over.

She loves having control of the pointer and pointing to letters that she knows or taking the cards out of the pocket chart and playing with them (a.k.a. destroying them…especially if they’re not laminated).

So, I got this wild idea:  Why don’t I make (and laminate) her some ABC cards that will fit into the pocket chart?  Then she can take the cards in and out as she pleases.  Hmmm…then an even better idea struck me: Why don’t I make her ABC cards with pictures that coincide with her beloved youtube video??  So, I did!

She woke up EARLY one morning (before I was ready to see a child), so I thought I’d show them to her.

She asked for the pointer right away and started her work: “A is for apple; /a/-/a/- apple…”

She wanted to make sure I knew that she’d found the letter A.

After a few minutes of enjoying it with her, I knew I needed some coffee and time for just me.  I retreated to the kitchen and came back to this:

Yep, I’d say she liked them!

  2. [...] 2. Your child can change from month to month and year to year. What was meaningful and worked one day may not the next. Again, flexibility is important. My daughter {currently 34 months} can be wishy-washy from one moment to the next! Some days, she wants nothing to do with the activities I have planned. But if I become her student in those moments, I am amazed at the things I learn from her. Most days, she wants to do everything her older brothers do; including worksheets or pocket chart games. [...]
