As a former math teacher, I obviously have mixed feelings about doing math with my child. Does that surprise you? I am both excited to teach him things, but also worried about messing up his math future since beginning math is not my forte. As a result, I did some with him previously, but had been waiting until 1) he showed more interest in numbers and 2) I had done more research into good early math skills and strategies.
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.
For the Chiplet’s birthday, there was no shortage of treats.
One of the best parts is that he could have all of the treats. The only thing he couldn’t eat was the popcorn just because he isn’t big enough yet for that, but everything else was fine.
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.
With two kids appreciating holidays, decorations, crafts, etc., it has been fun this Halloween to do lots of different activities with them. We still have more activities planned that I will have to share since I am writing this a week ahead of time, but here are some.
Sometimes I come up with activities that are designed for the Chiplet but then the Fudgelet wants to do them, too. So, you can decide for your kids if these are suitable for your 1-2-3-4-5 year olds.
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.
