K did week 2 of ABCJLM this week. We did not have a book of the week this week so just read lots of different books everyday. The colour for the week was blue and K painted a blue cup and the letter B for blue using blue paint. I also made her some small books for each colour and she has loved having these read to her.
She covered the 3rd day of creation this week and made a picture of flowers using bottle tops and pasta. Later in the week we quickly covered the other 2 days of creation and painted sea creatures and made a polar bear picture.
We did spend some time reading a book called In, out and roundabout and then taught K some prepositions with fun actions. She already knew most of them besides between and next to and had a lot of fun showing me them.
She played with a number of toys this week: puzzles, brainy blocks and we spent some time working on opposites by doing an opposites puzzle.
She now knows a-g of the alphabet (as well as a good number of other letters that we have not been concentrating on) and is sight reading more words than I realised – we continued with sentences and more sight words this week. It is hard to know what she knows as she is still not saying very much, but as her speech improves she is starting to let me know that she is taking it in. We will move on with other letters next week.
We continued to work on counting different objects – she likes to put her finger on each object separately and say “two two two.”
