Letters and Sounds

After going in to get Ben and Chloe ready for their day today and finding Ben sat on his bed with two of his White Company alphabet blocks – a “b” and a “6” – which he told me were “b for Ben”.  This, combined with a morning of phonics training at school, I got it into my head that I needed to buy some magnetic letters for the fridge  (tho I’ve always sworn I wouldn’t do it for some reason!)
We got a tub of magnetic letters from Tesco  on the way home tonight. We say playing with them on the fridge and he picked the b, e and n out for his own name over and over. I showed him “n for Nic” and “g for Granny” then he found some more and told me what they were. The pure highlight was when I showed him “r” and I made an “rrrrrr” sound which he told me was a “pooing noise” and pretended to push a poo out!!!  Later when we went to bed the “r” block was out on the floor so I asked him what it was and he told me it was a poo sound!  Hilarious.

    We have found that magnetic letter's can bring with them some fantastic discoveries. It's funny that you never wanted them, I couldn't wait to have a fridge that I could get these for lol. I will never see the 'r' in the same light again.

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)
