cmarango Posted July 18, 2012 Share Posted July 18, 2012 So, my ds (2.5 years old) is quite different from my dd and I am not entirely sure what to do. For background, my dd was already beginning to blend and could write a majority of her letters at his age. Here is where we are with my little boy: 1. He can identify all uppercase and lowercase letters and knows the sounds for each letter. Thanks Letter Factory and Starfall! I don't think he is ready to blend yet so what can we do in the mean time? 2. He doesn't have a proper pencil grip yet, but I have read that it is a developmental thing. How long do I keep waiting for it "just to happen" versus correcting his grip? He does enjoy coloring and wishes that he could use a pair of scissors. 3. For math we have just started MEP Reception, as he is counting to 20 and has learned one-to-one correspondence. Drives me crazy when he keeps pointing out equal signs in my dd's math work, but that is an aside. He needs some structured time every day, but can only handle about 10 minutes worth at a time. Ideally, I would offer him up to 30 minutes of planned activities every day. However, I need to have some sort of schedule since if I don't plan on it, then it won't happen.
