Today's Learning so far
Today I drew a large bubble A on a piece of paper. I then gave Caleb leftover stickers from his party, and showed him how to place them on the A. He had so much fun and really worked those fine motor skills. He needed help getting the stickers started, but he did the rest. (Note: My child is in a "I'm to cool to wear clothes while at home" stage...I pick my battles").
- Placing pegs in tiny holes
- Stringing Blue beads
- Building a Blue tower
Mckinlee likes learning about the color blue as well.
- Drawing A's and squares with chalk
- Sliding down the Blue slide
Stay tuned for more about our week of learning...kind of like a day in the life post education style :).
