Train toddler to talk video,my baby fell down 2 stairs,potty songs - Test Out

This week we are kicking off our Donald Crews Virtual Book Club Blog Hop and we are sharing a special train themed alphabet matching activity that goes along with the book we read-- Freight Train. We just bought Freight Train by Donald Crews this summer after hearing so many great recommendations about the book! My toddler (2.5 yr old) and I loved it because it was short, easy to understand, and filled with great colorful pictures! Then she explored the big stack of punched out colorful circles and played with them while I cut out a steam engine from black cardstock.
Once everything was cut, we sang the ABC song while I wrote alphabet letters on each box car and on each cut out wheel.
Next I added rolls of tape underneath each box car so that my daughter could add the alphabet letter wheels to the box cars!
Typically train cars only have two wheels on each side (four wheels for each box car), but we made ours have three wheels per side (which saved some wall space and some paper). Once the tape was up for the wheels, we poured the colorful alphabet letter punched circles onto the floor and I told her she could start matching!! Her goal was to find an alphabet letter circle on the floor and match it to the alphabet letter on the box car and then stick it on as a wheel underneath the matching letter.

We had fun using and reusing this activity a lot since the paper wheels came off the painters tape easily.
Our alphabet train has been a great resource to have in the house because it gets us talking about alphabet letters a lot!

This light striped shortall features a panel of smocking (done by hand) depicting a choo-choo train in shades of yellow and blue. I hand drew our steam engine but you could easily print out a coloring page to use as a template.
We even moved it into our kitchen later in the week so that we could see our train more frequently and talk about the colors and letters.
Next I cut several colorful cardstock pieces in half to create several box cars (I think we used 8 pieces).

I moderate each comment, so you won't see your comment show up immediately when you post.
It begins by describing each section of the train and then briefly describes the train's journey using simple descriptive words ("moving.
Our point of view, although most children are naturally choked with energy, today's society sadly encourages way an excessive amount of time spent ahead of the tv. Whether or not they are looking at a show or taking part in a computer game, these hours are just about wasted. Youngsters tend to mimic their oldsters, and if your own health habits are but ideal, your youngsters are probably to imitate.
