Reading and Writing Time
Using my latest clock nomenclature cards and workbooks, we reviewed how to read and write the time, compare the difference between analogue and digital clocks and the relevance of time in our lives.
Clock Nomenclature Cards are from here. You can get the learning clock from here.
We then moved on to our workbooks for more practice on writing time. Have I mentioned before that Mavi enjoys using workbooks?? Oh yes he does!
Learning AM and PM
In addition, I asked him to make a record of his daily routine. Like, what time does he wakes up, eat breakfast, lunch and dinner… till he sleeps. He’s very excited about this! I can’t wait to see that routine record and share it with you.

Welcome to another series of Letter Sound of the Week! Today, I’m going to share our ‘star’ themed activities for learning the letter s sound. Vito really really like seeing stars around the house, and it’s the first shape that he can identify. So while he’s at it, we jumped from letter c to learning letter s!
Letter Sound Basket. None this week. All we ever did was look at stars!
Playdough & Star Cookie Cutter. Playdough is a great activity for fine motor skills. Vito is enjoying playdough so far. He likes squeezing and grasping the dough already. We used our star cookie cutter for this.
Counting & Gluing. An activity that’s like hitting two birds with one stone. Practise gluing and counting at the same time. What I did here was punch the star shapes and made Vito apply glue on the paper. Then we place the stars according to their number. We then count the stars over and over. These days, Vito loves to count than reciting the letters LOL. He’s like, 2, 2, ,2!

Colour Matching. This is a DIY. I printed stars in coloured cardstock papers, laminate then glue them on the popsicle sticks. The bead cubes were from Melissa & Doug Lacing Beads. We matched the stars to the cube by placing them into the hole. I showed Vito how to do it first and then he mimicked my actions. The matching of colours is still a hit or miss, so I’m guessing he couldn’t recognize them yet.
Big and Small. A random activity while playing the cookie cutter. I was showed Vito the big star and small star. He wasn't interested at all with this.
Now, for this week's feature! Here are my favourites this week, something that we would like to try this summer!

If you’re asking if he can successfully accomplish this on his own, the answer is no. The only thing he can achieve right now is insert the lace in the reel’s hole but he doesn’t know that he has to pull it yet. I love that this activity uses both hands and working together with the eyes.
And he always saves the best for last. Using the reels as stacking toys! Now this is something that he’s really good at!
More toddler activities coming soon!

“Practical life or real work activities, along with the development of language, may well be the most important work in the first six years of life. By means of these activities the child learns to make intelligent choices, to become physically and mentally independent and responsible. He learns to concentrate, to control muscles, to act with care, to focus, to analyse logical steps, and complete a cycle of activity. This lays the groundwork for sound mental and physical work throughout life.” – Susan Mayclin Stephenson, CHILD OF THE WORLD
Another set will be posted soon!
