Reading The Big Yawn  


Naming all the different types of Toys 

Butter Learning Some Y words using Alphabet Soup Sorters  


I am currently working on colors with Butter but also taking things slow because he is still young and my main objective for him is play!! But learning toys are so fun because he is PLAYING and LEARNING! Here he is using the Learning Resources Super Sorting Pie (NEW FAVORITE TOY!!) sorting by color and counting (so far we he is counting to 5 YAY!!!)

Another thing we used for color recognition is this Geometric Sorting Board . He liked picking the whole thing up while he told me the color he put on :) 

Cowboy of course had to have a turn! 


Counting and Sorting

Cowboy and Butter having Puzzle Time :P 

 This week Cowboy Developed a LOVE for Puzzles.

 He never really was a fan of them unless someone was doing them with him. I came home one day with a new puzzle, and he begged me to do it, but I was cooking and could not stop to help. A few minutes later I turned around and he had completed it ON HIS OWN 12 pieces :) he asked for more so I went out to school and brought him in a few more.... by the next morning for school, he was doing 24 pcs on his own.

He is currently shooting to master 48 !! Super proud of him - and so glad Easter is almost here and I have an excuse to buy a few more "good" quality puzzles to fill his basket!
