ter ter ter T!
I asked mei mei, what does the letter Tt stands for? Below are the answers:
–>”I would love to have it as pet but I can’t bring it for a walk…”
–> “I NEED more princess toys!”
–> “Gor gor has many trucks.”
–> “Everyone is using mobile phone now….”
–> screamed in excitement:”Mummy, can I have a baby tiger as a pet?” Definitely…..nope from me!
6. tooth, teeth, toothbrush, teethbrush
–> Oops! And I corrected her “toothbrushes” not “teethbrush”
Is fun when you have a review session with your child on what they know about the letters. Having them recall which word starts with it can be so interesting and also the best time to asses what they really understand or remember and what they don’t.
Now that we have talk and discussed about Mr T or Miss T. More revisions coming up with activities of course. We started off with do-a-dot but this time round, we are not using the marker. Instead, we used pincer with buttons and poms poms.
We proceeded on with worksheets where she can practiced more on her writing skills.
Once that was done, she worked on some puzzles and reading. Not forgetting sounding off the letter T before reading the whole word.
This is the best part. She loves this activity the most! That’s T for Teeth/Tooth. I did a little story telling about the teeth and a little science lesson on how tooth decay occurs. A very good chance to teach mei mei about taking care of her teeth too! I made markings on the teeth to indicate tooth decay and she has to brush away all that to show me the clean teeth.
See how happy she was with her clean teeth!
Next, we had a craft session. Remember she mentioned about keeping a tiger as a pet. Well, she can have a pet paper plate tiger with teeth of course.
That was how her completed craft tiger looked like.
She’s addicted to brushing now. Helping her pet tiger to brush its teeth.
