Today we tried setting up some Tot trays we got from this awesome website 1+1+1=1. I found some great buys at the Homeschool Store in our area that we used for our activities on the trays. I looked in the used section and found some great games. So we tried them this morning, and I presented them on some trays I bought from Oriental Trading (same idea from 1+1+1=1).
Caden had a very short attention span this morning so we went through 4 trays in a matter of 10 minutes.
1st tray- Upper Case and Lower Case letter matching. I used X, Y, Z because those are the letters we are talking about right now.
2nd tray- Matching textures and colors. I got this at Wal-mart for Christmas last year.
3rd tray- Matching things that go together. I didn't take a picture of this but it is just like the puzzle we used at tray 2.
4th tray- Cutting yarn. This was Caden's first time to cut, and boy did he love it. I had to hold the piece of yard so he could figure out a way to hold the scissors as best he could, but he was so proud of himself every time he cut a piece. Then we glued the yarn on a yellow piece of paper and discussed the letter Y.
It was so cute to watch Caden sing at his Mother's Day Out Sing Along. Well he really didn't sing...the teacher's and Mom's sang! :) It is so funny because Caden just sat there on his teacher's lap and didn't move a muscle. He was defiantly not interested in singing. Even thought he didn't sing or do any of the hand motions it was still so cute to see him with all of his little classmates.
