I’ve recently done a small rotation of work on Havvie’s shelf. Here’s what we’ve added in.
Allen Key Board
Havvie and I often build her furniture together. She has shown a lot of interest in using screwdrivers and Allen keys so I purchased this board to help isolate and practice that skill.
I rotated out our language basket filled with wild animals with farm animals and their babies. We use this as a matching exercise and Havvie loves to line these up.
A simple tray designed to match the peg people with the rings. This is building upon earlier colour matching skills because I’ve included different shades of the same colour. I’ve written about this work previously here.
1:1 object correspondence
This tray is included as an early math work. Each of the peg people go into one Russian doll and can be counted out.
This tray is designed to allow Havvie to sort the different coloured glass stones.
A super simple pegging activity that allows for the development of the pincer grip, building concentration and repetition.
Shape sorting peg board
Another great pegging activity that also allows shape sorting. I introduced this work slowly in steps as I’ve written here.
I introduced these giant wooden blocks for open ended play. They really are quite big and heavy so help with maximum effort work. They’re also much more stable as a result. Havvie loves to see how high she can stack them and sometimes gets the structures to be taller than her.
