Animal Fur Match file folder game from Homeschool Share (seen on Confessions of a Homeschooler). This was easy for her, but she loves animals and enjoyed it.
I made her a Dinosaur lacing card and used a new shoe lace.....she had fun with this, she'd never done one.
I printed the pattern card printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler and combined them with some pattern blocks I got for $0.99 off ebay - she and Monkey Girl completed these easily.
Cutting practice! There is a great article on cutting skills over at ABC & 123. I learned a lot from this post - so I now have strips of interesting paper for her to cut and am not being so picky about how she holds the scissors. She cut all the strips I had for her into tiny pieces - I loved the concentrated look on her face (which you can't see due to my poor picture taking skills!)
We've also been working on counting - here she is doing a number puzzle I picked up for $0.25.
We worked on learning to sew......this is just shelf liner, a plastic yarn needle, and yarn! My older girls learned to sew using burlap, a yarn needle, and yarn.
I'm also working to familiarize her with her name...figuring we'd start with her first name, then move on to our last name when she masters it. I also want to work with her on learning our address. I plan to begin each of our times together by reciting her name and address...hoping the repetition will sink in! Here she is doing letter stamps of her name:
We also used the Dinosaur Train "My Name" template from 1plus1plus1. I laminated them with my NEW laminator (LOVE it!) - However, she wasn't too interested in doing this, it was a bit of a struggle.
Speaking of struggles, we have had more than a few this week. She will do an activity for a few minutes, then states "I'm done" and refuse to do any more. Is this normal for beginners? How do you all handle this? do you discipline? I very much want her to enjoy this time, I look forward to it! Any advice is appreciated......
Last but not least....mom went shopping! See my new goodies:
