Teaching My Toddler | The Letter C

The Letter C was a little tricky because life got busy during the week. It was still good to get in a little learning when we could, it was much more flexible. It was funny because when I was asking her to point out the Letter C on different books or pages she would point out all the C’s and G’s. They are pretty similar, so we ended up having a little lesson on the Letter G as well.

The Letter C Booklist

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff- This books is one of my husbands very favorites. He insisted we get it for our library so our kids could learn the very important lesson it teaches. It was also the perfect book for our activity.

Corduroy by Don Freeman- This classic is always a good read. I read this to a class of four three year olds one Sunday as part of a lesson and they were all captivated-that’s how you know it is a good book.

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin-Such a good book. I love this story and there are lots of C’s on the cover to point out!

The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss-I honestly haven’t read The Cat in the Hat since childhood and had no idea what it was like. It was so different than I remembered or expected. But it was great!

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt- This book is so fun and as a bonus it helps to teach the colors.

Cars and Trucks and Things That Go by Richard Scarry- This book kind of drives me crazy as a mother because my daughter loves to just point at every car and name each one. It is a little exhausting for me. But I remember as a child I loved to do the same thing with Richard Scarry books. It was so fun for me to look at all the pictures and all the different details. Remembering that makes me want to help her enjoy those same experiences.

Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina- This book didn’t live up to my expectations but it was still pretty good.

A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams- When I read this book for the first time I could vaguely remember it, especially the rose chair. It has a great message.

If I Built A Car by Chris Van Dusen- This book is great! The rhymes and imaginative storyline are so fun to read to a little one. One of my favorite books this week and a new to me book!

The Letter C Activity

This week was a little crazy, so the activity had to be super simple and easy. We had a frozen roll of chocolate chip cookie dough in the freezer so we just sliced it up and baked it and read If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. And it was great, because chocolate chip cookies were involved!

Next week I look forward to learning more about the Letter D.

Can you think of any fun activities or books we could read with the letter C? Let me know in the comments below!
