I set up an activity that I really want to do every week with some simple variations but something that will encourage Jared with some simple sight words.
I had no rhyme or reason behind the sight word I used this week which was "boat", I just thought it might capture his attention.
We had:( and the skills it works on)
Cutting shapes out to make a boat: ( fine motor, concentration, hand eye co ordination)
writing the word "boat": (word recognition/letter recognition, hand/ eye coordination, pencil grip)
painting a picture either of a boat or with a boat in it: ( imagination, hand/eye coordination)
hes getting better at coming and joining in at these activities which is what I was REALLY working on. Hes going to school next year and he has a very sweet way of saying " oh no thanks" to craft and arty stuff at preschool and getting away with it so I want him to learn to enjoy it so school wont be such a push.
He was happy to sit and start with me which was a good sign :) Having a few different things to do meant that he wasnt overly worried I was only going to make him paint.
These are the results of our very productive morning :)
