(Alex is 3.5 years and Max is 24 months.)
This week, we worked on Raising Rock Stars Preschool letter T. We also did a Tools theme using these printables.
The boys had FOUR playdates this week and Alex wasn’t in the mood to do tot school one day. As a result, we’re not quite finished with the letter T!
On our first day, Alex was VERY excited to do his “Getting Ready for T” page.
(Max was playing with paintbrushes…and no paint.)
Alex sequenced the hammers by size.
(Max went down the slide.)
Usually, he wants me to literally hold his hand as he works. Today, he did it independently. I think he did a great job. Alex was quite proud of himself, too!
Alex read the “What Color…” book to me. (No, he can’t read, but the text is entirely predictable…) Max LOVES matching games. That’s my discovery in the past few weeks. This week, he had a great time doing the shadow matching cards and learning the names of these tools.
He also matched the shapes on this shape mat. You can see he’s pretty proud of himself. He knows circle, star, and heart. We’re working on the names of the other ones, but he can still match the pictures correctly.
With TWO hands, Alex worked on his T practice page. I was annoyed that he wouldn’t even attempt to hold the marker correctly, but didn’t force the issue.
We worked on count & clip cards. I can tell we didn’t practice one-to-one correspondence much through the summer, as he needed a lot of reminders to count correctly!
(See? He got that much-needed haircut! Yay!)
Alex worked on shadow matching and 4-part puzzle cards.
We did a few other little things, but not nearly everything. I was planning to take this coming week entirely off for some special family time, but I think we’ll fit in at least 30 minutes to finish up the letter T in the coming week.
