There's also a lot of fine motor practice helping me around the house and in the kitchen:
I've also finally had the chance to prepare some activities from file-folder games and workbooks (by laminating pages, cutting out pieces, and adding velcro/magnets as necessary). Here's a basic human body puzzle the girls enjoy:
I photocopied some of the sequencing pages from Lollipop Logic and made them into cards the girls can put in order:
L also really likes completing worksheets:
E's interest in worksheets vary from day to day, so I never pressure her to do any if she's not interested. On days where she does want to do worksheets, she asks for them one after another. She's become especially good at tracing and completing mazes lately.
L and E also really enjoy drawing. Here's some of their latest creations:
L has been drawing stories:
I love the elephant in the first drawing. Everything was intentional - she was telling me the story as she drew the rope and the cliff. The second picture is of her two bears. They were sad bears, so she drew a sun and a flower to cheer them up. Then she wrote an 'L' before I suggested that she write her name at the top of the paper so she'd have more room.
I've been slacking on the blog entries, but I have been doing lots of activities with the kids, which is definitely more important. I can't believe how much my tiny twins have grown into Preschoolers!
UPDATE: I was so inspired by how much my kids enjoyed early learning games that I created the La La Logic Critical Thinking Curriculum for 3-6 year olds, which includes online brain challenge games, printable worksheets, enrichment activities and more!
