Read to Me
Our main book for the week was Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann.
Alphabet Art- Zebra Z
Z Pattern (large capital Z)
two large googly eyes
I cut strips of electrical tape and Simon smacked them down on the Z. He glued on some large googly eyes. I cut out the Z, and that was that.
The five colored cages store keys and animals for a fun hide and seek game. I would hide the color-coded keys around the room and Simon would find them in order to "unlock" the cages and find out which animal was hiding inside.
I also gave Simon some keys and locks. This was a challenging puzzle for him (to match the right key to the right lock and unlock), but he was really excited each time he was able to free a lock. I'm not sure why I want to teach my three year old how to unlock things, but it was fun for him.
