(Goblin is 28 weeks)
I switched out some of the stuff on our shelves this week and added the following:
Number pegs - These are great for strengthening pincer grip while learning numbers: number recognition and number order. Goblin needs a lot of help with the number bit but he's good at the pincer grip and attaching them to the shoe lace.Leapfrog Fridge Phonics - as Goblin has been singing the alphabet song a lot, I thought I'd bring this out again. If you hit the note button at the top it plays the alphabet song, and if you put a letter in the hole it tells you the name of the letter and the phonic - although I think some of the pronunciation is very questionable - for example its phonic for L is "ull" as in "pull" rather than "leh" and in "leg"
corn crisps - This may sound like an odd activity but its really good for practicing accuracy and its really fun. And it stopped Goblin using the hammer to smash anything else.
Although Goblin ate a lot of the crisps this activity did still make a huge mess. But fortunately Goblin decided he wanted to hoover up the mess. He's usually terrified of the hoover so I was quite surprised that he volunteered. Lovely bit of practical life activity there.
