c is for chicks and we are making the cutest little chicks out of the lowercase c.
I frequently see on social media graphics that emphasize teaching our Lil’s proper vocabulary such as “lowercase” c versus “little” c and I must say I agree. In my opinion there is no downside to using proper vocabulary, and while your child may not pick up on the meaning of this vocabulary immediately, the more you use it the more they will understand it. Whereas if we teach them using “children’s vocabulary,” you will eventually have to RE-teach using the correct vocabulary, therefore it just makes sense to use correct vocabulary from the very beginning.
With that said grab your FREE copy of the c is for chicks template HERE and be sure to emphasize the use of proper vocabulary (lowercase c) as you teach your Lil’ about the lowercase c.
