Our preschooler is an active little boy who loves to be involved in learning, listening to books, and doing projects.
Here's a highlighted tour of some of his most recent learning activities.
Learning about colors...
|Isn't this a nice shade of blue?|
He created his own tint of blue by thoroughly mixing the 'regular' blue with white.
Then he proceeded to flatten and cut out shapes.
At one point he cried out,
"Mommy, I made a letter J!"
|Do you see the "J" of the umbrella's handle?|
Days later, he asked me, "Mommy are you wearing your I shoes?"
I was wearing these sandals.
|Do you see the "I" on the buckle?|
Learning sounds and spelling...
While sitting on the side line waiting for a football game to start,
my husband helped him identify letters by their sounds.
|"Good! Now what sound do you hear at the end of cat?"|
They were using the book: Spelling Bee: Magnetic Read & Spell Book.
Learning about rhythm...
|Playing Daddy's drums|
Learning about nature...
We found this caterpillar at a park, and captured it for a time of observation.
|'Gus' the caterpillar|
Learning about families...
We helped him find
friends family for Gus.
(He was insistent that they were all family.)
|I love how they all didn't have to look alike, or even be the same type of caterpillar! |
To him, they were family.
Names of the caterpillar family, after much consideration and deliberation:
Gus (the large green one)
Tiny (the littlest)
Learning to say good-bye...
Eventually, we had to release the caterpillars.
My husband spent several minutes comforting our son
after the release of Gus and his family.
