Preschool Letter M

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Vito is 34 months old.

Our letter M last week.  I should have posted this earlier but I’m having migraines so I wasn’t able to create a post.  Unlike with letter A, Vito was in the mood to work with our letter activities.  Take a look at the highlights of our letter of the week.

Color Mixing: Green, Orange and Purple

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Vito is 34 months old.

After exploring colour shades and tints, we moved on to learning secondary colours.  We have a few books on colours but this book Colours My First Discovery Book got Vito hooked.  It’s the only book he ever cared about when were discussing colours.  I highly recommend this book for kids ages 1.5 years and older.  My first attempt of showing him the blue and yellow makes green was using tempera paints, but it was short lived.  His attention span was about 5 minutes and after that he wasn’t interested anymore.  So I went back to the one activity that he loves: colour mixing using water.

Animal Color Sorting with Montessori Color Tablet

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Vito is 34 months old.

We started off our color exploration activity by sorting out some of Safari Toob animals using our Montessori Color Tablets (set 2).  Actually, it was Vito who gave me the idea.  He keeps on identifying the colors of the animal figures and he would match it to the color of his shirt.  With this in mind, I realized that that we have a bunch of Safari Toob figures and it would be nice to sort them out as Vito loves the figures tremendously.

Last week, I introduced the concept of light and dark colors to Vito using water colored solution. It was so easy to prepare and Vito had so much fun mixing and pouring water!
