Monday was kind of a haphazard-ish day. I started a new schedule that required my getting up super-de-duper early for working out (such a love hate relationship with that whole early thing) and I thought more was planned out but I was wrong.
So I just threw some ideas together and it worked out kinda sorta. I had wanted to introduce the long C sound first and just work through that. But, we had planned on doing that Tuesday with D and K and I didn’t want to duplicate everything. That sound doesn’t have much to work off of (celery – which my kids hate, cereal, circle, circus – which I’m not willing to deal with, and centipede) though.
Instead I decided on a couple of things I thought they would like and went with it regardless of sound.
To introduce the letter C, I decided on caterpillar C’s. Once again, another great idea from the wonder woman over at No Time For Flash Cards. I tried to have them sort the colors out but they just wanted to squish them in their hands so we’ll try that another time. I know they can do it but it’s always good practice.
After lunch we did a painting project. My kids could paint every day and they would never tire of it, I’m sure. They love getting messy. This time I had them start with circle stamping. I gave them different things of varying sizes to use (a mini pot for plants, a bowl and a couple lids). They weren’t too excited about trying the different things. M took to the mini pot and only once changed to something different. O was ok with trying a few but she got over the stamping pretty quick. She just wanted to get her hands in there to make me a “pretty mess”.
