Hulk is starting to show more interest in doing school work with his brother. I'm a firm believer in less is more at his age, and I don't think he's quite ready for "Pre-K" type work. However, I don't want to discourage him, either. So right now, we'll just focus on a very generalized theme each week. He will get his own basket, and I'll fill it with books, puzzles, games and/or toys related to the theme.
This week's theme . . .
Puzzles and Games
We have both a capital and lowercase foam puzzle (Dollar Tree) so I put both of those in his basket and we named the letters as we took them out and put them back in.
I bought these ABC cards at the dollar tree a long time ago; probably in one of those 3-packs of card games. We matched up the pictures and practiced saying our letter sounds.
We have a few basic (a - apple, b-bear, c-cat) type alphabet books, but I want our reading time to focus on more engaging books. We have a few interesting books on our shelves, so I made sure to get them all out. No pictures, though, as we all four cuddled on the couch for some reading time.
JUST FOR FUN
We played a few iPad games...too bad I have terrible memory and can't remember any names except angry bird star wars.
The barn and animals were from a neighbor, and Hulk has always loved farm animals, so this has been a huge hit.
Wearing their new Star Wars Angry Birds hooded blankets! I love the rotten smiles!
It's been a quiet week with just a few activities, but the beautiful weekend was spent outdoors having fun! Next week's theme is Colors Of the Rainbow/St. Patrick's Day, so we should have a little fun!
