Mommy School ~ Hh is for House {A House for Hermit Crab}

~Kai is 38 months old~

I pulled out the crab craft Kai made in playgroup two weeks ago to go along with A House for Hermit Crab.  I read the story and surprisingly, Kai sat through the entire reading, considering the long text!  We worked on vocabulary words from the story I shout out a word and Kai covers the matching picture with a cube.  We continued working on recognising numbers & ordering numbers from 1 to 10.

 We also worked on visual discrimination skills.  Kai could easily spot the differences in colour, but not differences in directional orientation (left/right) or finer details - which I think is still advance for him at this point.  Kai also traced lines to improve his pre-writing skills.

Kai didn’t want to make his letter craft today but his big brother wanted to after seeing me pre-cut the shapes.  Keefe glued down everything and when Kai saw the completed craft, he said: “Kai is in the house!” J
