Kayleigh is 30 months
There was not a lot of tot schooling happening here this week. The tot was not the least bit interested in anything except avoiding naps and walking around in dress up shoes.
Our letter this week was D. D was supposed to be for dinosaur, Dora, or dragon but in really it was for disappointing. LOL Needless to say, since we barely touched anything, we’ll be continuing with D next week too.
Here’s what we did do. We read about David and Goliath and Daniel in the lion’s den in our various tot friendly Bibles.
We were going to use these Dinosaur clip cards with our mini-clothespins except the mini-clothespins were too difficult. She really has terrible time squeezing anything with her fingers. Whether it’s tongs, clothespins of varying sizes, she struggles.
So I took away cards and clipped the pins to a container and tried to show her how to pinch them to open them. She did not want to hear it. This child does not take direction well at all. She just pulled them off and wouldn’t even attempt to pinch them.
She was willing to work with her pom pom magnets on our D is for Dinosaur magnet page.
She was also willing to work on Dinosaur Patterns, once.
The biggest hit of the week was just playing with toy dinosaurs. She hadn’t seen these before and she used them everyday. Mackenzie enjoyed them too. I also gave them some played so they could make dinosaur tracks.
I also gave her some free time with play dough in the hopes of building up those little fingers. However, as I expected, her interest in that didn’t last more than 5 minutes. She’s never been big on play dough. Well unless dinosaurs are involved. Then she loves it. LOL
She kept trying to steal Mackenzie’s Mad Libs so I pulled out this Wacky Animals Mad Art book that I had picked up a while back. While she didn’t do it as intended, she did enjoy writing in it. At least until she started writing on the floor and her clothes because she insisted on laying down with it. Then I took it away.
Our non-pictured activities included a trip to Water Country USA, watching Dinosaur Train, and getting in lots of trouble for climbing out of her bed at nap time and playing with toys.
Oh and she has a new favorite book, Touch the Art: Make Van Gogh's Bed. It’s a board book featuring art from all the greats with a touch and feel element for the tots. She just loves it!In fact, she liked it so much that we went and got Touch the Art: Brush Mona Lisa's Hairtoo! It’s only a matter of time before we own them all. LOL
We didn’t get to our D is for Dragon page for our book or work on her Creation book. She just didn’t want to.
Be sure to head over to 1+1+1=1 to see what the less moody tots did this week. =o)
