Fridge Phonics

We got Ella the Leap Frog Fridge Phonics set for Christmas and I had grand plans of her learning her letters from it.

The idea is that there is one letter on each magnet and when she places the letter in the slot on the container, it says the letter and the sound it makes. She loves magnets and she loves music so it seemed like a no brainer.

But, there is also a button that just directly plays the ABC song without needing to choose any letter - and that seems to be where Ella spends all of her self-appointed alphabet lesson time :).

Although I pictured this being an educational activity, as you can see from this video, Ella has other ideas when it comes to learning from her Fridge Phonics!

And here is her own special rendition of the ABCs

So, not exactly what I intended but just so very cute!!

If it makes you feel better, Ella is gettin gmuch better use out of hers than Caroline is. She throws all the letters on the floor, so that I can step on them while I am cooking....OUCH! I guess now is a good time to stop cursing when I hurt my self=)

Not sure why, but when I attempted to view the latest posted videos, they weren't available? I'll try again later. Loved your 24 month post! Thanks for sharing Ella's growth with us! So all Ella wants to do is play from morning to night. Yeah for Ella!
