R is a terrific gross motor letter! We had so much fun pretending to be rockets, rabbits, robots and more at every chance.
Playing Ring Toss
The Rock Maze at our local amusement park
Rolling and Running were even more fun for R week.
We worked on Rainbow patterns.
We matched shades of rainbow colors
Coloring with rainbow colors
Rainbow puzzle- this was the left over scraps from a different rainbow activity I attempted, but didn't go as planned. I was putting these in our scrap paper pile, and realized this would be a terrific rainbow example for coloring and a puzzle for him to put in the correct order. He liked it too!
Leaf Rubbings - Turbo liked this more than I anticipated!
We wore red and especially our Red Rocket jammies. The best wearing red was on Friday before bed, Turbo was helping me sort the clothes from the dryer. He thoguth Daddy's red underware were very cool. This is what I found after putting Sweet Pea to bed. Yep, took of pants and diaper to wear Daddy's underware. Oh my, I'm still laughing about that.
We made and played with Rainbow Rice. I posted a tutorial for you earlier this week.
Ate 'r' things. This was a rice cake with peanut butter and raisins. We also ate ravioli.
We practiced Rhyming cards from Kidssoup.com
Few other things we did, but no pictures:
- We attempted to make a rainbow rice covered R, but Turbo insisted on using a glue stick. So, the process was fun, but the outcome was a slightly sticky R with slightly sticky rice all over the counter. I wish I had a picture because it was very funny!
- Watched rocket videos on YouTube.
- Reviewed our R poster from Kidssoup.com
- We talked about R things like recycling, reindeer, robots, rain, and routines.
I am so happy to be back doing letters of the week. However, we're going to take off again until the new year. We have a very full next two weeks with other activities and we'll be doing some traveling over the holiday. It's going to be so much fun!
