Mommy & Me ABC units. This week was letter O and ostriches! 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).
This was his desk setup. On the left is his magnetic calendar. His white board had some alphabet magnets, and his fridge phonics set. The shelf had a bunch of Os, a toy ostrich, and some O books.
O and Ostrich Puzzles
We did both printable and store bought puzzles.
Here he is using cookie cutters to make some Os. I didn't catch a picture of him using his alphabet play dough mat, though.
He painted an O (from 1+1+1=1)
Tracing some Os (from 1+1+1=1). Not sure why he is using his left hand.
I picked up the pieces to Handwriting Without Tears at a garage sale, so we practiced building Os. I hope to eventually be able to buy him the Learning Resrouces Letter Construction Set.
Ostrich Cutting StripsHe climbed a chair and somehow accessed his training scissors and brought them to me, asking for paper. Guess it has been too long since we practiced cutting!
Peg Letter O
Can't do any peg letters without then playing the "trumpet."
Xander asked to do some lacing last weekend, so I made sure to include it this week. He doesn't have the patience to go all the way around the letter, but I'm glad when he sticks with it long enough to do part of it!Dot Magnet Ostriches
Once again, we used two colors for his dot magnet pages. He uses one color for the capital letters and one for the lowercase.
I still had the Spring Vocabulary Cards out from last week, so Xander matched them up. He really likes to watch the vocabulary lessons on Little Reader and then playing the matching games.
calendar pretty often. He is usually disappointed that we can't immediately do it again after setting the date.
