I was asked many question about E’s current activities. Here is a few favourites right now.
painting, drawing, modelling, all of these are used daily. My biggest challenge right now is to find the place to settle a art corner for E. I need a bigger house!
This is something thoroughly present in his life, and mine, right now. He notices letters everywhere, and tries to decode CVC words all the time. So letters and mini books are literally everywhere in the house right now.
Sound pouches are a big hit:
And so the Melissa and Doug see and spell puzzle
I have a lot of homemade books, these are the current favorites
here is a sample of the inside:
they were made using flashcards off a website (I’ll link when I finally find it). E loves them, but so does the older, with whom I am currently working full time on mastering english for the rest of the school year. It gives a lot of vocabulary.
Welcome to my fridge, where it all started letter wise.
these letters are played and used everyday, not only for words now, but also for sorting as you can see…
E is just as interested into this plant experiment we are currently doing as the other 2. He is responsible for watering the plants everyday.
he loves it and takes his job very seriously!
I had this game on my wishlist for E since forever, and I found it heavily discounted at a closing sale. Of course, the best part of this game is the hammer, and this is why it had already disappeared by the time I had taken the photo…
Always a big thing here. Magnatiles are the current favorites.
E has always been very good with his gross motors skills, but I have seen him manage to improve this since he has received this board for Christmas. He loves to rock on this. Gets daily use right now.
Science and maths
Magnets: He loves to find what sticks on the magnet. He is very curious with this.
Botany vocabulary: E doesn’t like 3 part cards. But he enjoy these because they are in a context. He like to look at the card, and then look at the plants growing right in front of his eyes.
language even makes it’s appearance in math activities!
the rest of his time is spent outside, reading LOADS of books, and pretend playing with M and X.
As spring is comfortably installing itself, there will be a shift of pace. I am planning to spend most of our day outside to explore nature. I think he is at the age where nature time is the most important thing. I am building up a reference library, preparing and gathering tools and supplies, and I am just waiting for the warmer weather to kick in. I cannot wait!
