J for Jaguar

Xander is 28 Months

We are currently working on our Mommy & Me ABC units.  This week was letter J and jaguars.  Unless otherwise specified, all of the printables are from my Mommy & Me ABC Printables, which are free as we complete them (for a detailed list of all the materials in the printables, check out this post).

 His white board had some alphabet magnets, and his fridge phonics set.  His shelf had some J's, the jaguar from his alphabet zoo, and some books.

Letter Clipping

Shape Forests
Matching the shapes on the jaguars to the name on the forest.

Jaguar Number Cards
I mixed it up again this week with the number cards!  I used a hole punch to make a hole in the square where the number tile goes on each card.  Then we counted the number of jaguars on the card, found the matching number tile, and then used learning links to make a chain of that length.  Xander really liked it and wanted to do it again.

Sight Words Balloon Popping
I had wrote some words on balloons and let Xander pop them with a ballooon after he read the word.  He liked it so much ended up playing again with regular balloons.
All ready to play again.  Proudly showing off his pin.
He said "WHOA" after every pop!

Reading some books.  LOVE the facial expression.

I made some 3 part cards to go with Xander's Landmarks Toob (you can download them here).  He has been having a ball playing with them.

I got out the map from our Treasure Hunt Game and put the landmarks where they go.  Then I had him match the names of the landmarks to the figurines.

  1. Hi, love the sight word balloon pop game. Nice Job! I was wondering where I could get your J printables, they weren't in your ABC section. Thanks for sharing. I am getting ready for my son's preschool (in the fall) and I am working on getting all things ready. Thanks again.
