Wow, this week of Mommy School was a struggle! Both Little Man and I are recovering from the flu, and I had a serious lack of energy! With Mr. Oopsey Daisy traveling the entire week, I needed to be on my A-game as a temporary "single" parent. I wasn't quite the All-Star Mommy Teacher I wanted to be. I took lots of breaks to lay down on the couch. I have declared next week of Mommy School a review week, so I plan to use the time to catch up and review everything we have covered so far!
Nonetheless, come along with me on our week's adventure! You can download my week plan if you find that helpful. I am still trying to find the best way to show, in just 1 measly lil' blog post, everything we're working on! I think from now on, I will focus on showing our theme activities. Just keep in mind we are learning number skills, colors, shapes, and lots of letter sounds, too! It's just a whole lot to document each week!
Here are some of the fun doggy activities we did during this week:
* Most of all, I wanted Little Man to see numbers. We made these dog bone magnets for him to manipulate on the fridge and also practiced putting them in order. We paid particular attention to the number one.
* We also played a doggy counting game. Just like the owl counting cards from last week, we had dog counting cards. We placed the correct number of paper bones to match the dog.
* We used a grid counting game to learn one-to-one correspondence. We put chocolate chips or paper bones on top of dogs in a grid as we counted.
* We studied the number one by covering a large numeral one with doggy stickers.
