Deen loves to do mazes so we did a few different mazes this week. He is really good at them.
Then we practiced his writing his letter “D”.
I am not going to push writing on him but I am going to teach him to write the letters in his name. He needs to learn D, E, and N.
I’m considering buying the handwriting without tears program.
He colored the hidden object. It turned out to be a dinosaur but he was able visualize that on his own before he colored it in.He played a lot with our Dinosaur Sensory Tub.
He also enjoyed using the trays I set out for Aaliya and so I plan on setting out a few trays for him next week too.
He really enjoyed this circle punch tray. He was able to align each circle correctly but the difficult part was squeezing it. I think that was hard because I printed these sheets out on cardstock. I have this as a free printable on my tot tray blog post.
I printed this mitten colors magnet story from childcareland. It is sung to the tune of “brown bear brown bear what do you see?”Â It was a fun way to reinforce colors.We did letter of the week activities from Confessions of a Homeschooler
I need to find harder sequencing activities for Deen because he finds these too easy.
Our letter D craft was Dinosaur for the upper case “D” and dots for the lower case “d”.Â This is a printable activity that I will be posting tommorow.He played Rush Hour Jr which is one of his favorite games right now. It is a strategy and thinking game. You have to move all the cars out of the way so the ice cream truck can get away before the ice cream melts. The cars can only move forward and backwards.Â I was surprised by how much he enjoys this game as well as how good he is at it. I think this game is for ages 6 and up but Deen is 4 and he is almost done with the beginner cards so its definitely suited to younger kids.
Deen colored in Ben 10 and we did some open ended art on our easel.
