Recognizing the first letter of your own name seems to be a requirement in school...at any age. I am sure there are parents out there who rigorously practice reading and writing with their little ones, no matter what age. I guess everyone wants their little trooper to be a doctor or lawyer one day...nothing wrong with that.
It never really bothered me when Finley´s teacher told me last year that he does not recognize colors.
Let´s be honest. Who needs colors?
And I am not even getting into the topic of letters, let alone words.
The new teacher brought up the subject of colors again this year and I am thinking, "What is wrong with calling red ´blood´ , and yellow `bumblebee`. Hey, where is your imagination preschool teachers?
Now before I get another talking to about letters and words, which he does not seem to need in his life either, I came up with an alphabet that is more tailored to my "Halloween and all things scary" addicted son.
Watch out Tarantino here comes the king of gore:-)))))
