R is 38 months old
These Step 2 jumbo foam blocks were out as our toy of the week so R sorted blocks this week. First she sorted them by color and then she sorted them by shape. Of course, she built castles with them too.
R still loves How to Build an A and is always willing to make letters during tot school. I am considering purchasing the wooden manipulatives from Handwriting Without Tears. If you have them, do you think they are a good investment?
This magnetic alphabet book from Melissa and Doug is one of R's favorite tot school activities lately. The letters and the pictures for each letter are magnetic. There are a lot of pieces though so this stays up on a shelf and is only used for tot school.
I made this tot school tool myself! It is just a ziploc bag with a piece of construction paper inside (because there is writing on one side of the bag). I then formed letters on the outside of the bags with dot stickers. I put the correct number of buttons inside each bag (actually, I put in a few extra just in case) and R can take out the buttons and place them on the dots to form letters. We usually bring a few of these to restaurants or to Grandma's house. Obviously, this is not for a child that puts things in his or her mouth.
We also learned about New York this week because we will be heading to New York city for a vacation soon. Check out our New York crafts: the state bug of NY and the Statue of Liberty. We are going to learn about all fifty states so be sure to follow us on our adventures!
