Still working on fun ways to learn our name, by site and know the letters. Today's activity was a hodge-podge and touched in several areas!
Objective- Recognizes first name in print (MS Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers: Language Development 1.3.4)
No Mess Painting! We baggie painted some t-shirt shapes. I printed some t-shirt shapes from the computer on card stock. After they were all cut out, I dropped some different colored paint on them and placed them each in their own baggie and sealed them up. Little Mister smashed and drew and swirled on them all and kept saying "squishy"! I removed them from the bags and let them dry. I them cut out letters and glued them on each shirt. Sticky letters would have worked well to but we were out.
I strung up a "clothes-line" in the playroom I used yarn and tied them to nails I tapped into the door jams. Little Mister practiced spelling his name by clipping the letters to the line with clothes pins. This allowed us to review name recognition and letters of his name while developing some motor skills with the clothes pins!
