As I approached this week’s Calendar Time, I decided to focus on not just learning the letter and sound, but also working on some motor and matching skills.
First, we matched Big ‘F’ and Little ‘f’.
When I told him to look at the letters instead he did much better at the activity and really got into it. I would definitely recommend doing this for a child slightly older than he is (3-4).
Then, we went fishing!
|'Look Ma! It's a big one!'|
Afterwards we worked on writing out the letters.
|Look at how he's holding his crayon! It took me until I was in 2nd grade to perfect that grip!|
All-in-all, it was really successful. I love the one on one time I get with BooBoo when we do these and he's really loving learning. He’s still having fun with the matching game from our ‘D’ week and I know we’ll continue using the fishing game for a long time to come.
