Real Montessori - Object Boxes mixup

Now that we finally have objects in all of our object boxes (See our post about that here), we have started introducing all of the objects to Bella.  Most of them are fine, though we sometimes come across an object that just doesn't seem to work for her.  For instance, the antelope is always called 'cantaloupe' no matter how many times I say it.  Alligator is sometimes said "A-A-crocodile."  She's really starting to get the sounds and understanding the letters though, and that is really exciting.

Our newest use of the object boxes is to take 3 boxes with letters that make very different sounds and mix all of the objects together and then try to sort them into their correct boxes.  The sorting doesn't always happen as efficiently as I like, but I'm working hard on take a step back and letting her work at it with her own process.  Which sometimes means that she goofs around with the objects.  Exhibit A (B and C):

Anyone else having Michael Jackson flashbacks?
