Getting Ready

Prepping the alphabet clip cards was easy peasy.

I printed the cards on card stock to give them extra durability and make the colors really pop.

Then I cut apart each card from the bunch and grabbed a handful of clothespins I’d picked up at the dollar store.

With all the prep work complete, I invited Big Brother to join me.

He eagerly grabbed the top card R and clipped the clothespin to the matching lowercase r.

    Thanks Malia!
    Finally I found something on those great english sides that I can use with my german daughter without making any adjustments. Letter activities with letter and sound matching just won’t work.
