G for Giraffe - Week 2

Xander is 25 Months

We are currently working on our Mommy & Me ABC units.  This week was our second week of the letter G and giraffes.  Unless otherwise specified, all of the giraffe printables are from my Mommy & Me ABC Printables, which are free as we complete them.

 His white board had some giraffe cut outs, some alphabet magnets, and his fridge phonics set.  His shelf had a fabric G, the G from our floor tiles, a hand puppet, the giraffe from his alphabet zoo, and a few giraffes from his toobs.

 Play Dough
This play dough tray had his letter g dough stamper, a couple g cookie cutters, some giraffe cookie cutters, a play dough mat, and some dough.

Pattern Block Giraffe
This pattern block mat is from PreKinders.  Xander thought it was fun to "build a giraffe."
I used this magnetic box for the pattern blocks and Xander made his own game.  He started matching up the alphabet magnets to the letters around the outside.  Of course, I was more than happy to play along. :)

Giraffe Letter Clipping
He decided it looked like a finger nail clipper, so kept putting them on his fingers also.


Giraffe Numbers
Even though I did all 101 Doman dot cards, we have Little Math, and we practice numbers every few weeks, quantities are just not sinking in for Xander.  This week, I decided to do something a little different.  I used the same number tile cards I have been using, but wrote the number on the back with a wet erase marker.  Then we went through them like flash cards.  He thought it was fun and wanted to do it again.  Hopefully it will help him pick up the concept.

We did some stamping with our uppercase and lowercase stamp and washable stamp pads.  We also used a foam giraffe stamp.  I love how proud he looks!

Giraffe Tracing
  Giraffe Alphabet Puzzle
 I found this great alphabet puzzle over the summer.  I set all the pieces out for Xander and asked him for each letter.  He would find them for me to put together.

  1. Just wanted to thank you for sharing these printables and including such great animals. My daughter is thirty months and we are just started a weekly tot school routine using the alphabet and animals from her Fisher Price Animal Sounds Zoo. Your page has given me great ideas and inspiration!
