School has officially started, but we did this fun countdown that worked really well for us this year. I had lowercase letters for Nathan to match with the Uppercase letters to review them for school. Then the kids all helped think of words that started with that letter. The kids did really well thinking of the words! Then we would count down how many days were left. We tried to do some activities that worked for the letter if we had time that day, otherwise we went with other activities we had going on. They really enjoyed doing this countdown and it eliminated the question of "How many more days?"
