Toddler Talk Thursday was created as a place for moms and dads of toddlers to come together over a weekly topic and share ideas, go-to toys, or products. It is a great way to meet other bloggers of toddlers. Each week the topic will be different; we invite you to link up, share your weekly Toddler Talk!!
Each week the hosts will travel around to each blog to see what topic your suggest for the following week. If we choose your topic – you will be our featured blog.
Keep the GREAT suggestions coming. We have an on-going list we will choose from each week. Some topics are ones we have done in the past – but that doesn’t mean we won’t revisit them!!
In order to qualify for this you need to blog about this week’s topic, and follow the hosts.
And the end of your post – suggest a topic for next week.
Comments letting us know you are participating are always great too. If we choose your blog, we will link back to your post the following week.
This week’s Feature Host is:
This Week’s Topic: How do you teach your child the alphabet or numbers?
We do lots of counting here. We count going up and down the stairs, count toys as we put them away, count things in his books, and so much more. He has also been learning how to count to 10 in Spanish from Uncle J! You should hear how he says nueve (9). It is so cute!
When teaching the alphabet, we have been really focused more on just the letters in his first name. I will point them out in books or in a puzzle, and he will repeat them after me. I will also draw them on paper for him, and as he colors them, we will practice saying what letter they are. It is so much fun seeing him learn and discover new things. It is truly amazing!
