'Eye' took a self portrait!

~Bug is 26 months old~

This week we added some new things to our tot trays to go along with the letter Ee. One of the main things we focused on was eyes. We sang Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and each time we came to the part about the eyes we touched our eyes and yelled out the word. We also played a matching game with blocks and cut out eye shapes. Bug had to match up the set of eyes and then place the blocks together.

The other new activity we added was size and number sorting. These cool elephants from Confessions of a Homeschooler worked really well with our theme as well as had room for me to add numbers to them. 
Bug enjoyed putting them in order but quickly got bored with them. He quickly moved on to his color sorting that he has been trying to master. He has to place the object with the correct color grouping as well as name the object.

In keeping with Bug’s desire to use electronic devices and mommy’s PC whenever he can we signed him up for ABCMouse.com 
Although the concepts are the same as what he uses on his tablet he hasn’t quite grasped the concept of using the mouse instead of a touch screen. But he is getting the hang of it pretty quickly.

He did however, have no problem finding a book entitled Big Bug and Little Bug. It is a cute little story and so funny to watch him while they read the book on the site. He doesn't understand that Bug is his nickname but he knows that we call him that so every time they say Bug in the story he looks at me and grins.

While uploading the pictures for this week’s blog I discovered that sometime during the week Bug actually took a few pictures of himself. This one was perfect to go along with the theme and when I asked him what he took a picture of he screamed out EYE.

Preparations for next week got off to a rocky start as we stopped to welcome Bug’s newest cousin to the family. But that won’t keep us from finding new ways to learn. So until then…
