We’ve come a long way….


I remember a time in the not so distant past when getting Isaac to do anything that sniffed of learning was a task and a half!! And often if activities weren’t totally dismissed they were participated in for 30 seconds. Half heartedly.

Well haven’t times changed. I wouldnt say we’ve done an utter 180 but I no longer have a little boy who won’t look twice at anything that doesn’t have wheels!!! Its so exciting, not to mention refreshing!!

So yesterday we did lots of different activities including the most suprising of all; jigsaws!! Isaac has never been a fan of jigsaws even if I got really lovely vehicle ones!! But yesterday he sat with me for ages and completed lots of little animal puzzles, a police car and two twelve piece puzzles which is a really big achievement for him! I was so proud!!!

Next up we did some naming of foam shapes and then some sticking with them

He then decided that doing activities has to always include pouring water so i got some jugs etc to pour… seeing as I was hoping to work on fine motor skills I also got a small box of raisins and some chopstick style crab tongs!!! Voila.. Isaac uses them to transfer the raisins…. all be it into the water!!

Isaac then decided he wanted to do some letter tracing which is a really new thing for him to want to do. He traced lots of letters on wipeable phonics cards really well! He then traced his name on the white board and mummy was totally proud of how carefully he tried to do it and how it turned out!!
