Read: LMNO Peas by Keith Baker
Activity: Write a letter of the alphabet on a piece of paper. How big or small you write it is up to you. Give your child some frozen peas. Show them how to place the peas on the letter like you are trying to write or recreate the letter with the peas. For a younger child try writing a word on a piece of paper and encourage them to just put one pea on a letter. As they put the pea on the letter you can say something like, "Look! You put the pea on the letter C." Their name would be a great word to do or simple site words like I, me, bye, hi, etc.
