We haven't transferred rice with a spoon in a LONG time, so I added that back to the shelf. O was interested at first, but then decided she wanted to pour the rice. She wasn't thrilled when I explained that the purpose was to practice transferring with a spoon. I told her that transferring with a spoon would help strengthen her hand muscles to help her with writing. She quickly assured me that she could write, and she wanted to show me right then!
O loves the sandpaper letters! She is REALLY into letters and sounds now, so we are having a lot of fun with these :)
She also enjoyed the squeeze and match balloon activity and pouring water. We spent the majority of our time on the letters.
