 This Weeks Chart 

This weeks chart time was a little different. Cowboy was "The Teacher" I gave him a pointer and let him teach me the shapes and numbers. This week we started having 20 numbers instead of just 10. We are working on learning 11-20 :) He really enjoyed being My teacher! I really recommend trying this with your little one because it makes them feel really important and you really get to see what they know~!

 Intro to Letter Nn with and starfall. 

Cowboy showing me Letter Nn in Sign Language

Cowboy chose to Marble Paint his Letter Craft this week

Cutting practice- He cut out an apple, its stem and leaf, pasted it all together and used Glitter Shakersto decorate it. He is getting REALLY good at cutting things out! 

Building a Fort with Melissa & Doug Jumbo Blocks 

And a Tower......

A Few times this week we played find the letter with Soft ABC Letters and Letters from our - foam letter mat. This was really helpful for me to see what letters he struggles with and which ones he knows really well.

Tiny Tot- Butter is Currently 17.5 Months old

I only was able to get a few shots of Butter this week :( But here are a few... He is playing with Busy Poppin' Pals toy. He loves pushing the buttons and watching them pop and starting all over again. 

 Building with the Jumbo Magneatos . He was very intrigued with how the magnets stuck together and pulled apart and the feeling of the magnetic force. He had no clue what was going on but it was so fun to watch him think and his facial expressions.

                                                    *Moms Favorite*

My favorite Memory from this week is when one day during Lou's school time, Cowboy was being very sweet and letting her and I get some work done. He came and ran in the room and said Mommy come and see what I did!! He made a huge line with the Jumbo Magneatos and used all the balls like some sort of pattern. He was so proud of himself he laid down and said, "now take my picture mommy" =} Oh yes... Love this boy!
