I invited the kidabunks over for a fun rhyming toy. They were both easily hooked and came running over- two stars! I modeled how to use the wheel, and sounded out the first word together. Success - three stars! I let the two of them "play" with the wheel, they took turns nicely- even incorporating Little Miss' baby into the mix- four stars! Most importantly, they were having fun and learning at the same time. Did they get each word right on the first try? No. Did they have fun trying to remember how to sound out each word? Yes! When we were finished, I showed them where to put their new toy on the shelf. A few minutes later, Wild One was playing with it again all by himself- FIVE STARS!
