Treasure hunt: a work in process. Looking for letters in the sky/ on the ground for Noam’s “found” alphabet!

And this is just the beginning…it is impossible to stop once you find an unexpected letter B in a tree. I might be the one who learns to read in the process!…..

    Betsy, I think this is a wonderful idea. Would you mind if I borrowed the idea for our youngest, Isabel, soon to be five? Did Noam find or create the letters himself? Or did you help him with his alphabet? Either way, I like the idea of combining nature with man with letters. Great learning aid. Love, Myrna

      This summer Remi and I went on our local “giro” with Noam, and to pick up the flagging pace, I suggested looking for letters. Then out of the blue, back in Canada, he spotted that R in the potted plant, and the game resumed. I am more hooked than he is, but when I find a good one, I email it to him (“secret school”!), and he usually gets it. Anything to give the hockey player some reading tools! Try it, you’ll love it.
