Valentine/Love Theme

This week was our most productive one yet. I introduced the idea of sensory bins. I wasn't sure how this would go over with Ducky. As it turns out she LOVED it. Every morning she would ask when it was going to be sensory time. 

We attempted to work on our cutting skills. That didn't go over too well. She was begging to learn but she really struggled with the fine motor aspect. My mom works at a special education school and she is bringing me some scissors to try out that she thinks might help. I will update once I get them this week. 

Our first ever sensory bin!!!! 

Digging in

Concentrating on finding the hidden hearts

She said the paper tickled. 

How do you open this thing, Mom?

Still playing

I printed some ABC hearts and glued them onto some construction paper hearts that I had left over from this past week's Sunday School lesson. When I did this, I wasn't quite sure how I was planning on using them.

We used our Melissa and Doug wooden letters and matched them with the ABC hearts. I would hand Ducky a letter, ask to tell me the name and then to find the matching letter. Ducky responded really well to this activity. I plan on using it again soon. 

Her coloring skills have really improved in the last few weeks.

She's thinking:  I wonder if Mom will notice if I eat one of these?

Conversation Heart counting activity

V is for Valentine puzzle 

Some fine motor work

Working on her heart butterfly

Covering up her letter Vs

Heart hands ( probably my favorite part of the week )

"Hold your hands up and don't move until I get back."

This was a last minute activity. Ducky was begging to do more crafts so I had her glue tissue paper to a heart that I cut out of cardstock. 

Hard at work.

Play-Doh time

Stacking Rings

Monkey looks so pitiful 

That's better!
