~Aiden is currently 39 months old~
In honor of National Pig Day (sheer luck that this coincided with our plans for the week), which is March 1st, our theme this week was pigs and the Letter P.
Letter of the Week
I cut out the shapes needed to turn the letter P into a pig.
I made a pig alphabet matching game, which he was not thrilled about. Oh well, maybe when he gets a little older.
Book of the Week and Craft
Aiden’s favorite book this week was The Three Little Pigs.
We made a pig finger puppet to go with the book (next time I will laminate so it doesn’t get bent.)
and a pig out of a water bottle.
Aiden made pink finger prints on index cards,
which we turned into a Pig Counting Book (1-10).
I hid a pig under a house and Aiden would try and guess which color house he was hiding under.
This was a hit!
He matched fabric patterns and shapes.
He played with Stamping Sticks.
Aiden used the hole punch and a star punch. This is another activity that keeps him occupied until he runs out of paper.
I set out some sequencing puzzles for him. He looked at the pictures but was not interested in putting them together.
We worked on the concept of beside, on, in, under, and behind using a pig and a little barn.
That was our week. You can check out what other moms are doing with their tots at 1+1+1=1.
