Word Games


Mikey came up with a game that we just can’t get enough of around here.  We play in the car as we’re traveling around and at home.  Joshy tries to play and is starting to say a few letter sounds as a result.

Mikey: Let’s play a game.  We say words that start with the /s/ /s/ /s/ s sound.  /s/ /s/ stop.

Me: /s/ /s/ Santa

Mikey: ooh that’s a good one, Mommy.  /s//s/ snake

We play for a while and then Mikey will see or read something and want to change the letter.  It’s a fun little game that can go on for a long or short time. Here’s some of my favorites that Mikey has said:

/b/ /b/ Box Tops for Education

/n/ /n/ Nevada

/m/ /m/ mommy

/k/ /k/ Caillou (correct sound, just not starting with the letter k)

/l/ /l/ Leap and Lilly (Leapfrog characters)

This kid amazes me more and more each and every day.  Not sure what we’ll do come kindergarten time, but we still have a while.

Can You Burn CDs?

Um, huge favor to ask dear bloggers =o) So the preparedness fair is next week and we (hubby and I) have 300 CDs to burn for the event.  1 week, 300 CDs, only 1 CD burner…you get the idea!  Any one want to donate some time for a great cause and help in the effort?  I can personally deliver 25 CDs (unless you want more) and cases to you with the master CD if you will burn them at your house and get them done by Wed.  I will come back and get them too!  Leave a comment or shoot me an email if you’d be willing to help a sistah out.  I thank you in advance!
