Baby School - 9 Months

Last week, in addition to doing most of our regular lessons (outline here), I printed off some of the tot pack activities from 1+1+1=1   Since we love to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I decided to start with those printables.  I printed the different sizes of caterpillars, cut them out, and laminated them.  There are actually five sizes, but we only used three.  A few times during the week I got them out and pointed out the big/large caterpillar, the medium/middle caterpillar, and the small/little caterpillar.  Right now, I am just focusing on introducing the vocabulary that goes with sizes.  Eventually, I will have him point to them as I name them, or even put them in order, but those activities are still a ways off.

Not only did he like watching me order them for me, he also enjoyed throwing them around.

I also happened to find some colored spools at a garage sale.  We have been stacking and sorting them lately.  Of course, he really enjoys knocking down towers I build him.

 For some reason Xander really wanted to hang on to the couch while playing with them, hence the awkward position.
