~Aiden is currently 40 months old~
Our theme this week was dinosaurs and the letter D.
Letter of the Week
Aiden used Do-a-dot paints to paint the letter D.
Gluing pictures of things that start with the letter D. I found the alphabet worksheets at Homeschool Creations.
His completed letter D file folder.
This was Aiden’s favorite activity this week. We stacked his blocks, adding a sticky note with a letter of the alphabet to each tower we made. He wore dinosaur shoes that I made out of foam sheets.
I would call out a letter of the alphabet and he would roar and act like a dinosaur, knocking over the block tower with the correct letter.
Playing with his magnetic letters and numbers.
Reading and Pre-Writing
Reading with the Leapfrog Tag reading system. I originally bought this for my daughter, but Aiden loves it!
Tracing dinosaur pre-writing cards from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Counting dinosaurs as her transferred them into pens.
He went on a dinosaur hunt. Matching the colored dinosaur
to the correct color card. I found the game here.
I added dinosaurs stickers to strips of paper. Aiden cut in-between the dinosaurs.
Painting a dinosaur.
Using a dinosaur stamp.
Matching his toy dinosaurs to an electronic interactive game we found at the thrift store.
Pouring rice into a bottle.
We read Fossils Tell of Long Ago.
Then Aiden went on an archaeologists dig. I put the dinosaurs fossils and eggs, that we made earlier in the week, in the sandbox for him to find.
Breaking open the dinosaur eggs.
Mixing some flour and water.
Putting away silverware.
Just for Fun
