Noarai is 21 months
1. We started with the videos of the potty week and added some number videos: a) Potty videos: - song: my daughter loves this song. It’s catchy and the girl is really nice. We have been seeing this video and singing the song all week while we are potty training (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKFG5IwifKk ) And finally she’s almost potty trained! - Boys and girls in the potty: this little boy is having so much fun reading and clapping himself and I wanted her to see the potty as a fun achievment (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvIDA4Ey-uc&feature=related ), this boy is reading a book all by himself and that helped him to get motivated to read as well and helped him to be more time sitting down on the potty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PcPH3116jM&feature=related ), and finally this boy made all the process pulled down pants, sitting, making pee and cleaning it up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxMXsMqZ9hI&feature=related ). If you’re interested the method I followed with is here http://www.funpottytraining.com/ , it’s been great for us.
b) Number songs: - 1-20: this one it’s nice because the numbers are animals (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7AmBGd4tmU&feature=related ) - 10-20: this one it’s funny because you can see the hens dancing and it’s good because the child can see that number one is the same for 10-19 and only the second number changes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPsaLoplx-8 ) - And for review 1-10: she loves this song and counting her fingers and toes so this song it’s a hit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYYIy4nuMAE&feature=related )
2. Then we filled number 19 with stickers. I used two colors to help her concentrate.
3. I wrote the numbers 10-20 with a permanent marker on the sticks and we put them on her fingers and toes, on her arms, and also all over the house ;)
4. We made our caterpillar (http://confessionsofahomeschooler.blogspot.com/2010/04/prek-letter-o.html ). She was wearing daddy’s necktie for her N words of the week.
5. We made our number folder but with number 19 added (sorry this picture was from the previous week I ran out of battery in my camera). It was made with a cereal box, Velcro and markers and she loved it. 6. Then we finger painted our octopus numbers up to 19. Here you’ve got the link (http://www.4shared.com/file/bM3D9Rf6/10-18_octopus.html )
7. We did a magnet page I prepared for her. I found some magnets at the dollar store and I wrote numbers from 10-20 with permanent marker and she matched them.
8. Finally mommy’s last number project. I took some disposable cups and made a hole on the bottom and stuck on each cup a stick with the numbers from 10 to 20. Then I took sticks and stuck on each one cardboard with the numbers from 10 to 20. This activity was a hit number matching, fine motor skills and a really concentrate toddler!
Mommy’s favorite, my two girls ready for church!
