Toothpicks into a parmesan container.
Please supervise closely if you do this with your tot.
The same colorful toothpicks in a styrofoam block (to keep him busy while Mommy ran out and Daddy did dishes)..
Guidecraft Feel and Find (but he just pulls out and matches).
Left: Roll and Match game (roll the dice and find a star of the same color).
Right: Beads (he had just finished stringing them when I took the picture. I still have to help by holding the string.)
Top left to right: pegs on edge of container (hardly ever chooses this), matching animals to photos, matching cars to colors (I ended up replacing this with the toothpick in parmesan container activity)
Bottom: peg counting toy and button matching.
Sensory Play: feathers!
Letter Sound Sorting – he actually did this alone. Might have been a fluke. He hasn’t wanted to do it since. I sing a song for each letter sound as I show him the sandpaper letter.
It’s partly borrowed from Leapfrog Letter Factory but I have changed the words to make it Montessori friendly (no letter names).
“This is /a/. This is /a/. Every letter has a sound. This is /a/.”
Tiny beads because he has to do whatever Bear is doing of course!
This was much too hard, but bear held him by holding the string and he got a couple on with lots of concentration.
