Last 2 weeks is all about writing letters on sand. Montessori Sand idea is very appealing to young kids. Eaton loves doing that now. Because Nathaniel is always around I put some salt into another tray just for him. Eaton started to draw printed letters too. I never gave him printed letters to trace before but he had plenty visual stimulation from books.
I don't correct him with drawing, I want him to explore and see his mistakes by himself.
It's all about shaking that tray! (I need to change a tray as this bump is coming out all the time that leaves the empty spot in the middle of the tray).
