Letter I Week

Letter Formation/Pre-Writing
First he traced the letters with his write and wipe cards.  Then he used the Letter I Tracing Pages from 1+1+1=1, then he tried them on his own.
Making H's out of foam crafting blocks.  You can download the templates here.
Q-Tip Painting (from 1+1+1=1)
 Using his Build a Letter Templates and HWWT pieces. First he built the letters on the templates, then he built them by themselves.

Still loving the new Do A Dot colors!
Just for fun we got out our magnetic letter set and I asked Xander what word he wanted to spell.  He wanted to spell "super hero" so I let him give it a shot.  I was very impressed with how well he did sounding it out and catching his mistakes.  Granted, it took him a little while and he wanted to do it all as one word instead of two, but he got it!  So glad I picked up that set.  Even if it was a little pricey, it's totally worth it if it means he enjoys spelling!

Thinking Skills
For Christmas Xander got a magnetic ring set, so we gave it a try.  He had a lot of fun with it.  He matched the rings to the cards for a while, then he played on is own.  He particularly likes making the rings bounce!
Xander also received a number board for Christmas.  I got out our Unifix cubes and we played for a long time.  First I had him put the right number of cubes on each square 1-10.  We talked about what he noticed and the numbers got bigger.  He thought it was great that they looked like stairs!
Then we did 1-5 but with one color at a time.  I could then ask him how many we needed to add to three to make it look like five, and other similar questions.
I picked up some number cards at Target's dollar spot, so we did some math with those also.
Painting some Is (I used the lacing page from my Mommy and Me ABC series)
We're still doing our Alphabet in Simple Science, and this week was I for Ice (very weather appropriate).  We did his science notebook page, read some books and did a bunch of activities.  Check back Friday for the full post.
Life Skills
We had a break in the super cold weather, so I bundled Xander up and took him outside to play.  Instead of playing, he insisted on shoveling.
Sensory Play
Playing with water beads.  For some reason he enjoyed rubbing them on his cheeks and dumping them on his head.
And making a big mess.
