This will be a 2 for 1 post; not only (as you have probably surmised from the title) is it a look back at the past week it is also a look forward to the upcoming week. We had a pretty quiet week of activities. Hannah and I did have fun but Ethan was pretty uninterested all week. Here are some of the pictures from our week:
|Pin poking the letter Q, this was a hit. |
Hannah enjoyed the poking in general and did not even once poke her finger. She especially enjoyed flipping the paper over and feeling the bumps.
We practiced counting with the Q-tips. Hannah is very interested in counting and numbers right now so I am following her lead.
We made Q-tip pictures. On the left she made some string and the right is a box.
|Hannah made her Q quilt. Ethan ate the foam pieces.|
|Hannah dotted happily. Ethan ate his dot marker.|
This was the only activity to hold Ethan's attention. Hannah preferred the cookie cutter Q and Ethan liked pushing the foam letter into the dough. Ethan was exiled eventually because he wanted to eat both the foam Q and the dough. Either I don't feed him enough or he ready to pop out his last tooth.
This week we will be working on our Letter R activities. I am looking forward to a very colorful week of activities.
|Letter R Box: Rose, rock, ring, Letter R and the R bean bag.|
|Rainbow dot art. This is an activity I saw on The Princess and the Tot. She has a lovely printable version but my printer is on the fritz so I did it by hand. The are little x's that are hard to see under each dot to stamp.|
|This activity is inspired by those very cool wooden rainbows stacking toys. I made a paper version , it's a good activity for color recognition, sorting by size, as well as learning the rainbow color order.|
|Decorating the Letter R with rainbow rice. Here is my link if you are interested in how I made it.|
|Finally, rain cloud counting. There are five clouds numbered 1 to 5 with enough cotton balls to count out each number.|
