My Blueberry Muffin is 19 months and showing a lot of interest in learning. I am starting some preschool activities with her and she loves them. We have been doing them informally up until now, but as of today I will be doing at least two planned activities, as well as other unplanned ones (sometimes initiated by her). I may not list the things we do every day, like reading books and singing, but I will sometimes.
1) We did the shapes sorter ball together today many times. The one we have has different colored shapes (Granimals Brand) so we can talk about shapes and colors at the same time. This is an activity she has been able to do for a few months, but she doesn't seem to get tired of it. She is able to find the place each shape goes on her own now.
2) Farm Life Folder Game from LawTeeDah We matched baby animals to their mammas and did the farm picture puzzles. We talked about what sounds the different animals make and about the animal names. We sang "Old Mac Donald"
