Henry is 35 months old.
We had fun with the letter D a couple weeks ago. I'm surprised how quickly Henry is picking up each letter's sound these days. Children's ability to absorb and learn is so amazing.
On our first tray was a set of Safari Ltd. Dog Toob figures, and a sheet with pictures of real dogs. The goal was to match. Some were easier than others, but some were kinda tough. It took close examination of each dog to figure out which was which. Henry always loves using little figures.
The second tray was a set of dinosaur shadow matching. This was the first time I've done matching to shadows, and Henry seemed to enjoy it. It was more of a challenge than his typical matching activities.
The third tray was using duplos to make towers the same size as the number cards. Henry loved this tray and spent the most time with it this week. It was also a hit with the co-op kids.
Other things we did this week included:
Letter D Sensory Bin:
Letter D Magnet Board:
Sandpaper Letter/Salt Tray: The kids are starting to get over the sensory aspect of these and make the letters! Its great to see, especially for Henry who is very reluctant to use anything to write letters.
Sight Word, Letter Matching: We did a few more of these cards, and they were still a big hit.
Easy D-Word Puzzles: We used these last time we did the letter D, they were just letter D words cut in half. They were probably a little easy for Henry.
