While attempting to reinforce alphabet recognition, this is a repurposed game that T and I made ourselves.
We used an old alphabet page, cut up the letters (scissor practice is a pre-writing skill) and placed them in this chocolate box.
Now we do letter recognition as well as matching upper case and lower case alphabets.
While not exactly original or wonderful, activities like these help pass time (especially in winters) while having fun and being educational! Plus, the actual creation of something useful from waste/ unused items itself is so enjoyable! Win win!
On that happy note, enjoy the weekend folks!
It seems like I my days/weeks nowadays are stuck in a Lego challenge!
Here’s what I do in this unsurprising but life-imposed challenge:
- Build novel items from Legos- no repeats allowed
- Keep track of Legos, Duplo sets, Mega Blocks and so on.
- Constantly keep the family uninjured from aforementioned Legos
- Attempt but not successfully to keep myself from stepping on said pieces
- Think of ways to incorporate lessons while playing Legos since we seem to be playing most of the time with them
- Guess correctly what T’s creation is or state an even more appealing answer
- Get creative on playdates to prevent fights over who gets what blocks
- Supply fascinating examples/ models of what you can build with the blocks each kid has!
- Try to stop Legos from taking over the house! (moderate success!!! Yay!!)
Wish me luck folks and share your tips to help me win this Challenge!
For this week, I took the first step toward my reading goal. And that was adding my goal of 12 books to Goodreads 2017 Challenge.
The very display of 0 books made me yearn to get started and conquer this challenge right away! A small step, true, but already spurring me on! 👍
What steps are you taking to reach your milestones?
The New Year has begun and it is time for making fresh resolutions.
Sharing resolutions publicly is not easy for me, but that is what this blog is all about- rising to the challenges of everyday life!
My resolutions for the year are:
- Read 12 books this year.
- Post every week on this blog.
- No more than two unhealthy items in a week. (Trying to fashion my health Goal as per SMART techniques.)
I had deliberated on many more goals but felt these were my long term ones and those that I really want to shoot for. Getting better at organization, introducing preschooler to more veggies and cooking, being more mindful are also on my list. But I do not have a plan right now to execute them. So, I am cutting myself slack and simply content with giving myself all of January to devise an action plan to try them out.
So these are my goals and plans for the year. Wishing everyone luck on their goals and hopes for the year ahead! Ciao!
