The Letter C
This week we learned about the letter C. We read It's C! by Oona Gaarder-Juntti a couple of times. We talked about words that started with the letter C (like Miss F's little sister's name!). We watched The Letter C Song and C is for Cookie from Sesame Street. Everything's been really lax, but today I decided to do something more special and purposeful: chocolate chip cookies in the shape of the letter C! What could be more c-tastic than that?
We made the cookies together - I'd scoop ingredients and Miss F would dump them in the KitchenAid. We even had a learning moment for both of us when I was at the cabinet getting more ingredients and she turned the mixer on all the way up to 10! I haven't moved like that in a while - I was hurdling toys left and right in the 20 feet to the mixer.
We made three C's and an A because Miss F requested it. I'm posting a before picture because the after picture was (unsurprisingly) four large blobs of cookie not at all resembling the letters we made. They were tasty though, even if I might be regretting pumping her full of sugar an hour before naptime... :o)
