So far, the "letter of the week" idea is working out. Our best week was "C", mainly due to my degree of focus and attention. This week we worked on "D." I tried to incorporate "D" words into our daily life, we practiced our writing (Zayit is a long way from being able to write letters on his own... I'm hoping to pick up some sandpaper letters in the next week or two), learned about dinosaurs and concocted a duck out of a paper plate. We did our usual with our Do-A-Dot markers and Power Magnets. I got some printables from here and here.
Making Learning Fun has printables that you can use these wooden shapes with. I chose to use the lower case letters for something different. We also printed off a "D is for dog" coloring sheet from Making Learning Fun. This was the first time Zayit colored somewhat within the lines! So exciting!
And of course, what is a week without a craft? Zayit's Duck
Upcoming blogs this week: the Bronx Zoo, how I keep my toddler entertained on a long car ride and making super-bouncy balls!
