Being playful ☺
CALEB: It’s sooooo heavy! (Making faces.)
All done sorting!
I brought out the kitchen scale for Caleb to use. This helped to reinforce the concepts of light and heavy plus it’s something new for him to try.
I told him that the farther the pointer moves away from the zero, the heavier it is. He enjoyed reading the weight of each object. It was only from 0-3kilos, easy for him to read.
He wanted to make the pointer reach all the way to the end so we overloaded the scale. He was so proud to tell me that it was too much, too heavy! Since the pointer went way beyond 3.
This is a simple and fun activity for comparing weights. Thanks for reading! 🙂
I got this idea from my friend Gabbi. You will need:
Use the crayons to draw on the sandpaper.
I provided Caleb with different coloring materials and let him choose which one was the best to use on the rough paper. Here, he’s testing out the coloring materials.
CALEB: This one! I like this!
Caleb enjoyed drawing on the rough paper.
It’s easy to trace on!
Caleb traced his name.
He even learned to draw a sun.
Ready for the next step!
Put the cardboard under the shirt. Position it so the sandpaper that will be ironed on to it will fit on top.
Put the newspaper ( I just used a sheet) on top of the sandpaper and iron using medium to medium high setting. This takes less than a minute to do.
Using stickers to make sets.
Just another fun way to count.
Caleb kept on telling me that the number 1 was missing. Maybe I should’ve made the numerals 1-3. Thought that would be too easy. Oh well!
This took some time to finish since Caleb would lose count while taking the sticker out of its plastic liner. No complaints from me! That just meant more counting practice for him. He would recount every after he puts a sticker on the paper to make sure that the numeral and the number of stickers matched.
