Fun With Magnet Pictures & Names
It's another rainy day here in Maine so Grace spent most of the morning playing with her activity bags. One of Grace's favorite bags is the one seen here. Maddy cut out the faces of our family members (and Ella too!) and put them on magnetic paper. The magnets stick to a cookie sheet. This morning Grace worked on matching the printed names of our family members to their picture. Grace can identify and read the printed names Ella, Uncle Adam, and Grace from a long list of words! When I extend the first sound of the other names (e.g., "Which one says Mmmm-mommy?") Grace can identify the printed name from a choice of three choices. Once Grace identified the printed name, she placed it under the correct picture.
