(Goblin is 28 months)
Today I took the day off work so I could go and observe Goblin at nursery. They only do half day 'viewings' so I had the rest of the day off. I had planned to watch some really bad TV and sleep, but instead I started obsessing over Goblin's shelves - I haven't rejuvenated them in a while because he's been so into his trucks, rainbow rice and painting that they haven't got a look in.shaving foam at the weekend. So I thought I'd do a bit more letter work, but using things he is already interested in. So I laminated pictures of things beginning with B, D and T. I basically chose the letters that had the most amount of vehicles words associated with them.
Usborne Trucks and Diggers Snap and seeing as we are trying to match vehicles to letters I thought this would compliment it quite well. We play two games with these, one is simple matching and the other is the memory game where I lay out about 6 pairs upside down and he has to find the matching pairs. I was surprised how good he was at this last time we played.
Cutting Fruit out for a while. I'd like Goblin to learn to use a knife so he can do more in the kitchen, and this is nice safe practice which I don't need to keep a continuous eye on.
Finally some simple number matching using some printables I laminated ages ago. I feel very guilty because I can't remember which blog I downloaded these from. I thought it was 1+1+1=1 but it doesn't have their watermark on it. If this printable is from your blog please let me know so I can link to it.
