Sorting size cards.
Matching shapes. I cut the shapes out of white label stickers, leaving a little extra backing on so Rohan could pull it off himself.
I thought giving Rohan the whole bucket of pattern blocks would be overwhelming, so I gave him a little box containing only the pieces he needed for his picture. Still tricky, but he did part of it.
Color card matching. The smaller cut out pieces have magnets on the back so they don't slide around.
Color word matching.
Matching art cards.
I found these new blocks, which Rohan is not at all interested in. He only played long enough for me to snap his picture.
Zahana, however, loves them. She plays with them a long time.
Zahana and Rohan also learned about the letter M. We started by reading My "M" Sound Box. Then we made our own sound box by finding things around the house that start with "m".
We put together a map puzzle, read If You Give a Moose a Muffin, and made an "M" book.
Last, we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and made our own alphabet tree!
Zahana and Rohan were so excited to find their M's in the bucket of magnetic letters and put them up on the tree.
The little ones are so happy to have their special school time with Mama. I'm finding it a little difficult to make that time for them every day, but seeing how excited they get makes me ready to try a little harder.
