Bull’s B book was so much fun I decided to do another one. Focusing on the “b” sound for a week started to help him hear it in words he mispronounces so I decided to do a T book last week. I chose this in part because Tigers are his current favorite animal (“I’m a really bad Bull-Giger. I’m going to eat Mama all up” (loud chomping noises) “Really bad Bull-Tigers have to live outside in the mud” “I’m a really sweet Bull-Giger.” is an exchange heard around here several times a day) and I knew we could do some tiger themed crafts that he would enjoy.
So we did a couple of days of T is for tiger, and then a day of T is for tomatoes with him cutting out pictures from an old seed catalog. Then on Friday we got to T is for Train and Tracks!
This was a fun one.
At the beginning of school I asked him to go find a particular toy train in the playroom. While he was doing that I poured some fingerpaint into a bowl and set out his papers.
He really enjoyed the tactile experience of the paint without making a huge mess, and was quite pleased with what he had to show Papa that evening. I’ll be looking for more opportunities to do this kind of thing with him.
