In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Jax is definitely a visual learner. He just stares at something often and long enough until suddenly he has it committed to memory. That’s why something like a word wall would be a big success for him, but I honestly haven’t taken the time to make one. I kind of prefer the kind of learning that can be tucked away and brought back out on a rainy day so it’s always fresh and interesting; I think if my kids see something every day they eventually become oblivious to it (half of their toys fall into this category). So when I pulled out Jax’s ABC clothespins and sight word box, he was excited to play with me because we haven’t used it in about a month. Plus the fact that I had found some great spring sight word printables here which I had added to the mix, we had a really great time learning together while having fun!
We did the same thing as last time–Jax organized his clothespins…
…and then we took a look at his cool new spring words.
This time he tried to find a word for every letter, instead of choosing the word first. He had a few different words going at the same time but it was a bit more challenging–he had to think about which words he was going to focus on so he didn’t have twenty different words; he focused on two or three and soon was able to complete each one.
Proud of himself for a job well done!
I’ll keep sharing any printables that I find for this activity–so many of you enjoyed that post, I hope you like this version, too! And as long as my kids are into it, I’ll keep the fine motor fun coming!
