It’s time for some Letter R fun. Little M and I had a great time putting together a Ribbon Sensory Bin.
Apparently I buy a lot of ribbon without paying attention to what I already have. Who needs 4 spools of orange ribbon? Turns out this was a great project for cleaning out our ribbon box! Little M and I cut strips of ribbon, some short and some REALLY long. I curled some of the ribbon and was hoping to give her a lesson in curling ribbon, but she wasn’t interested. Maybe next time.
We searched for R items. Some items were too big to fit in our box so we wrote the words out instead. We added some foam “R”s. (Can you tell I made them?) Magnetic letters would work too.
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. Make sure to leave a few obvious R items out of the box. This will allow your little one to find some “R”s on their own. 2. While you are playing talk about R words and encourage your little one to think of some too. 3. Mix letter sound activities with letter art activities for added punch.
