I find it quite fitting that her first shape she recognizes, says the name of, etc is a HEART! That is the shape of the month at her mother's day out program - I am sure because of Valentine's. But yes, she surprised me one day and pointed at one and said "heart"! I am really going to do a better job of working with her at home in regards to the color, shape, etc of the month that they talk about at school. She is clearly a sponge and soaking up every bit of information. I have some flashcards with letters and words and all of that, and I think it is time to play with those sometimes! I don't want to be too structured, but I definitely want to have a time each day that she's not at mother's day out where we spend time actively learning - colors, shapes, letters, numbers, animals, etc. Once I figure out how I think I am going to try this, I will be sure to do a post all about it!
