Rocks in my Socks

We are still working on activities for name recognition. 
He knows they are the letters of his name because he calls them "Rylee's letters". However, he continues to put them in the wrong order. So, I have been looking for any and all opportunities to review his name over the past few weeks. We sing songs while driving in car. I usually change the B-I-N-G-O song to his name. The beginning of the song usually changes depending on the places we are going or what we are doing at the time. He enjoys it as I'm sure do passing motorists. My friends tell me that I can get a little animated. We got an applause from a near by car once while sitting at a stop light. Hey, when there's a song in your heart , a girls just gotta let it out!

Anywho, when we go outside to play my Little Mister is automatically drawn to the rocks in our driveway. Usually I ask to find shapes or specific colored rocks, but today he had his own agenda. He brings me several rocks that are flat on one side. Of course flat rocks just cry out for something to be put on them right? Right! In this instance, we labeled them with the letters of his name and I Mod Podged over it. Once dry, we dropped them in a sock and let the play begin.
