A is for .........

Beginning a new round of ABC Wednesday today and I thought I'd start at the beginning.


How many of you used blocks to learn your letters?  I can remember making words as a little girl with my ABC Blocks.

When I was elementary school we used a chart like this one:



Maybe :

At least they both start with APPLE.

I had those blocks as a child and so did my daughter. They were multipurpose as we would make little houses with them. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

super introduction to the new A-Z on ABC Wednesday!
are the new alphabet's icons your own or did you discover it? I wonder if the pictures in my former classroom have been changed?

Clever use of A for APPLE and all the social media examples.

Oh those blocks were wonderful! Even as an adult I had a set of blocks from Home Interior that spelled out Home Sweet Home and another Merry Christmas! I was always showing my kids how to create new words from those blocks! LOL
What fun here today! Good to see you Ann!
Prayers for my grandson Colton. He flies to KC,MO tomorrow with his wrestling team. He is a good kid and good little wrestler.
Hugs, Anne

I taught school and remember the blocks from both my childhood and career. Kids grow up too quick, no Google for kindergarteners. - Margy

I loved those blocks. I've been amazed at the electronic learning toys our new grandson has too.

Wow, I haven't thought of those blocks in years, but I still have the sense memory of their edges and their carved shapes. Now there's the tap of glass and plastic. Language evolves, and so do our means of passing it on...
