This was so easy and fun. I was particularly impressed with how keen Youngest Son was about this.
Capital A. The book we had been reading, Angelo by David Macaulay, had shown a capital A so I made this to demonstrate the idea to the children.
The first letter Youngest Son created. "M for Mummy".
Younger Daughter started with a lower case i
She followed this up with a capital E.
Youngest Son is into treasure maps so made several x symbols.
Lower case n.
Upper case N.
e from acorns.
r from old leaves
p was made by Younger Son with some help for the curved portion ( a twig with a break or two)
Youngest Daughter made a question mark.
We made several more although not quite the whole alphabet! This did seem a cumbersome way of making words although it would be fun to learn simple words using leaves and twigs. Perhaps, next week.
