In addition to the Letter of the Week Curriculum, I am going to keep doing sensory bins and tot trays for Ryan. One of the big skills to begin working on is connecting numbers with objects. With tot trays, I want to combine counting and fine motor skills. Here is a look at his first try with chopsticks and pompoms.
I thought he did pretty well given that Alex was distracting him. He had no problem manipulating the chopsticks, so I tried it with smaller pompoms.
These were more challenging, but still not much. So, I tried even smaller ones.
He had to chase these across the room a few times as they kept jumping out of the chopsticks. Alex did this activity, too. Not really a challenge for him at all, but he had fun.
One more preschool preview remaining, and then we are all set for real school! I think Ryan is excited. Every time I fire up the printer he asks if it is an activity for him. He is quite disappointed when I tell him it is only a coupon.
