J-jo is now 28 months and loves gluing and cutting. He uses his beginner scissors from Timberdoodle, but has started using real scissors, too! I debated purchasing the beginner scissors four months ago, but am very glad I did. They have helped strengthen J-jo’s hands and he is now ready to use real scissors. If you have a toddler who has never tried to hold regular scissors, then I recommend them. They are confusing if you already have tried real scissors.
J-jo’s still confusing a lot of shapes and colors. He can point them out if I ask for them, but he can’t name them yet. However, he knows 90% of his letter sounds (naming them). This doesn’t make sense to me, although he does watch a lot of Letter Factory and that could explain his letter sound knowledge. He also does letter activities and crafts in the nursery on Classical Conversation days. I need a good video for shapes and colors. Anyone know of any?
