Jackson is 25 months old.
We are finally getting back into the swing of things here. Jackson is obsessed with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom lately. He wants me to read it to him over and over again! So I decided to do some activities with him this past week based on the book.
Of course, we read the story. We also listened to the story on CD.
I printed off a coconut tree (this was a printable in a lapbook that someone made, I can't find my link to it now though) and we put it on our magnetic white board and played with letters. I retold the story this way, named letters for him, spelled some simple words, etc. But every time I said "Chicka Chicka BOOM BOOM" he tore all the letters off as fast as he could!
We had a snack: (chocolate graham crackers, apple slices, Alphabits cereal)
Played with an alphabet puzzle
Colored a picture of a coconut tree and then added letter stickers to it
Pretended to make alphabet soup using some foam letters (but he wasn't that interested)
and Jackson played with his little Magic Writer thingy. He loves it, and I love it because he can scribble all he wants and I don't have to worry about scrubbing crayon marks off my walls!
We also watched Elmo's ABC rap over and over again. He just loves it!
