Will you be my Valentine, Jordyn?


1Co 13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
While the world is celebrating man-centered love through the endless purchasing of flowers and processed sugars, we hope to teach Jordyn that intense love for man finds its Genesis in a intense love for God. Love for God must precede love for man for it to be genuine; for God is Love. All other forms are merely shadows of true love. Let us not forget why or how we love men and God.
1Jn 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

Theme of the Week: Valentines

First time with erasers.
 
The glue stick MONSTER!
 
This was the longest we have spent on a Tot Tray!:)
 
First time with colored pencils, but preferred the markers.
 
Say hello to her new 'SMILE' face.

pom poms, dot painting, tissue paper and contact paper
 



She took handed the lid to me and said 'red.' Yay!


This activity got her attention, its like stickers but opposite!


 
 
 
Our finished product mounted on the window led to much practice saying the word 'heart.'

Fine motor.
 
 
 
All she wanted to do was just EAT THEM.

She wanted to glue--that's it!
 
We are still working on a 'sweet' smile.
 
 
 
Yes she was crying!
 
She got in all these different positions in order to do this activity, I loved watching her mind work.
 
 
Day 5, Valentine's Day, we only did a Sensory Bin.
 
The base is colored dyed rice (Kool Aid and rubbing alcohol). It smells AMAZING!
 
I kept trying to talk about the items, but she was so into this bin she didn't speak for 15 minutes. HAHA

Letter Sounds

We thought Jordyn (16.5 months old) knew letter sounds for A, B, and possibly D. Sitting around singing 'the A says....ahh' song we learned that she knew a lot more. So we pulled out the camera. She was able to name the sounds for A, B, D, S, T, and P. Later, (at bath time) we learned that she also knows letters E, L, and N. We attribute this to her LeapFrog Letter Factory DVD and her LeapFrog Singing Magnets on the refrigerator! Music is going to be a great learning tool for Jordyn.
