We are currently working on our Mommy and Me ABC units. This week we did the letter X and X-Ray Fish. Unless otherwise specified, all of the printables are from my Mommy and 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).
Xander has been funny with play dough lately! He never wants to play with it if I ask him, but if I set all the tools on his table, then he wants to play and have a blast! He made some Xs on his alphabet play dough mats with his dough stampers. We also used some cookie cutters to make Xs and a fish.
We did some X puzzles.
Spanish Color Habitat
We matched the baby x-ray fish to their Spanish color seas. He loves helping the animals find their "homes."
Finding all the Xs to get the baby fish to its mommy. He used Do-A-Dot markes to mark all of the Xs.Tracing
Getting the babies to the mommies in his dry erase center.
Letter Sensory Bin
I found these cute cards focusing on the final X sound from This Reading Mama. At first I had Xander use his See and Stamps, then we practiced making Xs with a dry erase marker. He wanted to keep erasing and doing these activities again and again.
This week I printed our lacing page on cardstock and used a white crayon to make some Xs. Then I had Xander paint it with watercolors to reveal the "secret" Xs. He is a very serious painter, but that doesn't mean he didn't enjoy it!
Using his training scissors to cut apart the fish.
Other Tot School Activities
First "official" math lessons! (Post to come soonish)
No idea why I haven't let him play on this website in so long! I was blown away with how well he did! He enjoyed reading many of the books and could figure out almost all of the word games!
Still excited about having his own to-do list!
Exploring with a flashlight!
