In this activity, J was sorting by size. He separated the barns into small, medium and big. He does this one pretty well, but had a little trouble with a couple of the smaller ones.
This one was an interesting activity - matching the shadow with the animal. He really had fun with this one, but it was pretty easy for him.
J just loves music and dancing so I pulled up this song on You-Tube. We really like the Gigglebellies and Old McDonald went with our theme. They are very colorful and engaging and we like the songs. So far, we just watch them on You-Tube but they do have a DVD available.
This is a really challenging activity for J which I like. It is so great for his fine motor learning and part of the three R's (reading, writing and arithmetic). We used the giant pencil just for fun. I'm still trying to find a good kids pencil for him. Maybe we'll use a short golf pencil next time.
