This morning we played with beads. First we did apple tree color sorting. Zoey would pick a bead from the bowl, tell me the color, and then put it on the correct tree.
I would have her say the color either loudly, quietly, in a funny voice, like Mr. Bear, or like a baby. She really liked that. Before this she had never enjoyed a color sorting activity enough to finish the whole thing! Then she made necklaces, putting the beads on the matching colored string. There was one for each of us 🙂
