Now that Luke has all his colors, shapes and letters down, I have a game plan to keep him cognitively stimulated during these cold months indoors. Other than the read-alouds, here's what three looks like at our house.
We spend lots of time coloring on white paper and in coloring books. Markers are the media of choice :)
Our designated "Craft Basket," we keep markers, crayons, colored pencils, safety scissors, a glue stick, coloring books, construction paper, and a preschool curriculum book to tote around the house. It usually ends up on our dining room table, but it's nice to have everything in one place.
This is Luke's "Portfolio," which really just dubs as a keepsake binder in disguise. After Luke masters a skill, we put proof of it in his portfolio. It's quite fun to watch how much they learn and improve every month!
Only the very best makes it on the fridge.
