You can see the set up of Magoo’s shelves for this week in our school room tour. Magoo’s favorite assignments all week were coloring. I think he just wanted to use a desk like his big brother. We made a Yellow Book, although we didn’t cut or fold it. It’s hanging on the wall.
It took a bit for Magoo to warm up to the lacing beads. I don’t think the stiff end of the shoelace is long enough for his little hands. Magoo was able to line up the shoelace with the hole and I pulled it through for him. Bebop also played with this quite a bit (but I didn’t get any pictures.)
We played our sock sorting game almost every day. This picture was from Monday, when we counted the socks. By the end of the week, I had added in the red and green socks and baskets (colors we’ve previously focused on).
Most of our learning about squares happened with the various toys. I did print out this square coloring page for Magoo, but he was only interested in scribbling on it.
Blocks were a huge hit! I made the base in the right picture, and Magoo was able to stack 3 blocks! He mostly wanted me to make tall towers for him to knock down.
The boys played a game of catch with the soft ball in Magoo’s box of yellow things. I normally don’t let the boys throw anything in the house, but allowed this because they were playing so well together. Bebop was instructing Magoo on the proper way to hold and throw the ball. I wish I had a video because it was adorable. I paid the price for the rest of the week, as Magoo tried to throw everything! Next time we’ll go outside.
Bebop is able to buckle himself into the car seat without any help. About two weeks ago, Magoo decided he wanted to be like his brother and started throwing a fit if I buckled him. I pulled out our infant car seat and a teddy bear and let Magoo practice when we weren’t trying to get somewhere. He is now able to clip the top buckle without help. I’m going to leave the car seat in the school room a few more weeks so we can practice the bottom buckles. (Bebop also used this to practice unbuckling, which he can’t quite do yet.)
My boy loves to clean!! I was mopping and he took over. Surprisingly, he was actually helpful.
Crafts with Bebop
Instead of trying to plan something specific for Magoo, I’ve included him in Bebop’s Pre-K crafts. Here they are making a duckbill platypus puppet.
