We were quite busy for letter H week. As usual, we started with uppercase H but did other activities to include big brother Fudgelet, too.
Welcome to the letter O! This was the week when we started doing fewer activities just because I felt like the Chiplet was needing less structure. But as usual, we started with making the uppercase O.
I decided to do “F” next for our letters because we were entering “Fall” and I thought we could do some activities around that.
After our trip to Maryland, I started doing more activities with the Chiplet in mind. The Fudgelet is happy to do the same activities even if they are easy for him. He always manages to enjoy this sort of stuff regardless, so I figured by starting with the Fudgelet around, it would help model some good behavior for the Chiplet. This is why we did some of our activities like coloring more rice, etc. So, the very first day that the Fudgelet went to Kindergarten, “school” started for the Chiplet.
And here with are with another batch of lowercase letters to enjoy. As you can see, I stopped taking as many progress pictures…and often forgot to take pictures each day of the letters. So, some are group shots. Buying the googly eyes was a great investment. As you can see, eyes were added to just about everything. Easy for mom, fun for son.
We have continued our letters and by the time you read this, we are done all of our letters. I’m trying to think about what to do next…some sort of unit test? Haha. Anyway, I have tried to get pictures of most of the letters, but sometimes I either forget or my hands are coated in glue. Either way, you can see at least one picture of each letter in its final state, and most with some progress shots.
The Fudgelet knows his uppercase letters pretty easily, and even does things like finding them in random shapes/lines (he found a W shape with our sliding doors) and making them (with his food, with his arms/hands, etc.).
