Purple Week

Archer is 16 months

In August I posted our Color Themes Goals. Those are what I had in mind while we started Tot School this week, not actually learning the color.
His little shelf had several books about colors or Purple.  I also got out two of his Non-Fiction Sight Words books and one of his Meet the Sight Words readers (he likes those better than story books at the moment).  The poster was free from Isla Hearts Teaching on TPT. I also hung up the pages to his color book (free here).
Playroom shelves this week.  The goal of the toys is to entertain him and give him some fine motor practice.  Things like building, sorting and puzzles also provide some spacial awareness (math and even physics). 

Shelves included the purple sorting basket and food, shape cupcakes, purple silicone mold activity, race car carrier, hedgehog, a tray of squigz, gear caterpillar, magnadoodle, bin of purple objects and a pattern puzzle.
Purple foods 3 part cards (free here). I still did most of the matching for him, but we did it every day. We also did the corresponding Little Reader lesson to go with most days. He is getting better and better, both and picking up the words and at learning the idea of matching. By the end of the week, he could do 5 of the 6 on his own.
 Coloring his Purple Book (free here). We used crayons, markers and Do a Dots.
Bin of miscellaneous purple objects.
This was the first one to one correspondence activity I did with Archer.  I just had a little silicone mold and some pom poms in a cup.  He seemed to grasp the activity all by himself and completed it pretty quickly.  Someday, we will move on to doing it with tongs or scooping, but he's not ready yet.
Excited about all the circles he made on the magnadoodle.
For sensory play with used purple spaghetti.  More pictures on this post.
We got our his color paddles with the light table.  He had fun playing with them.  I also showed him how to combine red and blue to make purple.
Being silly with Daddy, making the world purple.
In addition to his normal running, wrestling and climbing, I got out Xander's purple spooner board for Gross Motor play.  He would sit on it and I would spin him.  He also did some spinning on his own. He's also gotten really into our Plasmacar lately.
