With all the sickies going around in our home, it has taken Koko 3 weeks to complete the letter G.

We make a divider each week for his file with the letter we are busy learning. This time we did “G for Grapes.”

We use mini pompoms for our magnet sheet, its one of his favourite activities.

Colour by numbers, he is getting better at this. Now he just has to learn to colour in the lines.

He loves the gluing activities. I still cut the goodies out for him he does all the gluing himself and almost uses an entire tube of glue, LOL.

He was meant to cut on the lines, but his co-ordination isn’t quite there yet

He cut the page up in pieces instead, LOL

This week we worked on the Letter Dd for Dinosaur, Koko’s favourite animal at the moment.

Painting his D for the collage.

The Dinosaur floor numbers, his counting is coming along nicely, he still doesn’t recognise the numbers, but that will come with time.
Photobucket

The D magnet page, we don’t have little magnets, so he uses Noo’s counters.
Photobucket

The D do-a-dot page, he did two of these this week, he just loves them.

Koko decided he wanted to make his own pizza on Pizza night. Here are a few pics of him making his little pizza (Noo was with his dad this particular weekend).

Here he is rolling out the dough, I couldn’t find my rolling pin, so we used a 2l Coke bottle.

This week we changed things up a bit. We did lessons in the living room and then I moved our “preschool” to our bedroom and its so much better as Koko now has his own school area which he loves. He is now asking for blue workboxes like Noo’s, so I’m in the process of looking for blue drawers for him (and trying to figure out where I’m going to put them, LOL). I also downloaded these cool Mickey Mouse themed workbox tags for him.

Now back to this week, the Letter of the Week curriculum is still a HUGE hit here. Koko loves the lessons and I just love how much he is learning. Here are a ton of pics of what we did this week (not necessarily in the order they were done, LOL).

Sorting Diamonds and Ovals (I, for the life of me, can’t remember where I got this printables. I think it was from a friend)

At his “new” school desk. This is an antique writing desk that belonged to Daddy’s Gran which we now use. I put a linen protector I got from hospital when I went in to have Fifi. It works like a charm and protects the wood.
