Our first activity was sorting robots by size. After a little argument (he wanted to sort them by color) he ended up doing this activity a few times in a row. This has expanded to him finding things in our daily life that he is distinguishing by size too.
The tracing is very new for J, so it took some step by step instructions from me. I would use a pencil and show him how to trace, then he would do it. He followed along very well. Notice the example of coloring within the lines and NOT ;)

Create Your Own Robot Sticker Activity Book
I found this cute little sticker book on Amazon (Create Your Own Robot Sticker Activity Book), where you have all the robot parts and get to mix and match to make several different robots. This was one of J's favorites. He took this to bed with him too.
As the final project for our Robots unit, J got to help make his own robot. We used an old coffee can for his head, old Jif can for his torso, milk lids for eyes, mouth, buttons, toilet paper rolls for arms and paper towel rolls for legs. J liked him so much, he wanted to sleep with him. He named him "Toasty". Since he's delicate, he sleeps on the chair and we put a little blanket over him at night.
Verse of the Week:
Matthew 22: 37-39 The Greatest Commandment
I found this Robot video on Vimeo with a creative display of the verse.
This video was a nice short version of the verse breaking it down to "I will love God, and love others."
