The Letter I

My 5 year old learned about the letter "I" in kindergarten today. They talked about things that start with the letter "I" like inchworm and igloo. Then they were given a paper where they were supposed to draw 4 things that start with "I" and write their names.

Here's what my son drew.
In case you can't read kindergarten writing, the box on the top left has a picture of Idaho. The box on the top right is Illinois. On the bottom there is an inchworm on the left and Indiana on the right.

A while ago we had a conversation about the letter "I" here. Who knew that "I" would become such a popular letter for places.

I love the inchworm sliding in there with all the states! Mama Zen could be right - a budding geographical engineer with a dash of entomology thrown in :)

Yay for those home geography lessons!

Idaho looks like a rabbit's foot. Illinois looks like it could be the outline of RoadRunner's head. The inchworm looks like a snail without its shell. And finally, Indiana looks like an elf's shoe.

When your boys get a bit older, you guys should play Pictionary for family game night.

Have you tried playing Taboo with your kids? I played with a 7 year old once:

7 year old: "Grandma makes this."
Me: ?? Joyce, I don't know your grandma. Tell me something else. Hurry! The time is running!
7 yo: It's really good.
Me: ??

The answer was meat loaf.

Pretty big words for a little one! Good job, him! :)

Pretty cerebral for a kindergartener. Maybe she's being goomed to be a Geography major? Can't ever have too many of those, you know.

Definitely not your typical 'I' words. Cute.

I love the ideas that he chose. That cracks me up. And I'm proud to say that I can read kindergarten enough to know all those words ... except for Indiana.

Wow! That is very impressive. Those are some LONG words.
