Summer of Shapes: Oval & Rectangle

Kent was 25 months old.

Since we fell so far behind I started covering two shapes every week.

We learned the ASL signs for oval, rectangle, and purple.

I don’t have many pictures related to our theme. We used our “A Rectangle Can Be…” cards, the Lauri toys rectangle and stacking pegs, and a beginning pattern block puzzle with rectangles and ovals. I added rectangle and oval buttons to his playdough bin. I didn’t get to it but thought of adding a deodorant dispenser top to the bin for pressing oval shapes in to the dough.

He decorated printouts for our shape display. I couldn’t find shapes with the names printed inside of them so I made my own. That way we can cut them out and still have them labeled. If you want my templates let me know and I’ll e-mail them to you.

I gave him this sheet from Memorizing the Moments in a page protector so he could erase and redo it.

The week was mostly filled with random activities of his choice.

He made a "horse" out of a pretzel.

He played with this toy.  It sits out in our living room all the time.  Lately, he has really been drawn to it.

He mastered stickers this week and had fun putting them all on the birthday card they came with.  Prior to this he would get frustrated and stop after one or two stickers.

We’ve been visiting the library all along but I guess I’ve been forgetting to photograph our favorites.
