Okay, now to this weeks activities! We focused a lot on our "Classic Game Week" the past seven days, but we also tried (and loved!) some new works as well. Enjoy!
Th is was the first time that we officially played the game and I was surprised that he was able to find some of the colors so easily. He literally only has one thing that's pink..
Ty started practicing a new grip this week, using the handle on this measuring cup to pour birdseed.
We combined bowling and baseball this week! Big hit, literally!
Ty has started to lie down on his scooter board and use his hand and feet to pull and push himself along this week. I love how many ways we've been able to play with this scooter!
As I've mentioned a few times, Ty loves to be read "The Fire Cat" by Esther Averil, and gets especially excited when he wears his fire hat at the same time, so...I decided to help him act out one of his favorite scenes (this would of course also be a literary extension).
In the book, a fire fighter saves a somewhat naughty but potentially good cat named Pickles (main character) from a tree after he chased a smaller cat up it and couldn't get down. Pickles then goes on to become the fire station's fire cat, but the chief says he has to learn to be good to other cats, which he eventually learns. One day they get a call that a little cat is stuck up the same tree and is out of reach of the fire fighters. Pickles redeems himself and climbs the ladder and into the tree to save the cat
We never use our attic, but I knew there was a ladder, so we read the book, gave Ty his fire hat (which he didn't want to wear while climbing) and showed him that there was a small cat stuck near the top and asked if he wanted to be like Pickles and save the cat. Oh boy was he excited! We repeated the scene several times and Tyler was so happy to be acting-out one of his favorite books!
