Shape and Letter Coloring


Today's educational activity involved multiple skills. On one page I drew the outlines of different shapes that M would recognize- each with a different color marker. This is how our interaction went:

Me: M, can you find the (heart)?
M points
Me: That's right. What color is it?
M: (red)
Me: (Red!) That's right. Can you find the (red) marker?
M points
Me: That's right. Now, can you color the (red) (heart) with the (red) marker?
M takes off the lid and scribbles on the (red) (heart) outline.

We did the same thing with a second page- only that time the page was filled with the outlines of different colored letters.

I love how you set up fun and educational activities for M! I'm starting to think about homeschooling and realizing--it's already starting in these younger years! You've been a source of inspiration for me. :)
