Z is for Zebra! Having had finished letter B, the boys were expecting letter C next in line. I originally planned covering it chronologically, but after further researched, I found out that it would be more interesting for the children if we introduce first the letter of their names. So, we jumped from C to Z which is the first letter of my boys’ name. Since, I purposely initiated this activity for our youngest Zian, we will beĀ ensuing his name for the coming week.

Here’s how our letter Z week went. This time most of our worksheets were from The Measured Mom. I used the level 1 worksheets for Zian and the level 2 worksheets for Zoe. Thanks a lot for those free printable!
