Well as our Apple Unit came to an end I decided to make the Apple Shaker for Jacob. I thought this would be a great way to keep an 'apple' around to remember all the fun we have had. I know it will be a good reminder because he loves music and anything that makes noise! I will place it in his music bin when his Structured Play area is cleared out for October's Unit. He will go to it daily, I am sure!
At first he tried to pull the stick out of the apple picture but got the hang of it after a while. He does pretend to eat the apple and although he is not saying apple, he is not calling them balls any more. He just calls them mmmmmmms (Same as most food). Anything he can eat is "mmmmmmmm" said while putting his fingers to his mouth! He really has taken baby sign to a whole other level, without much help from me!!
What a fun month this has been! Our first month of Structured Play was a success! Cannot wait to see what October brings us! All I know is we will be having fun while learning new things.
