Today we pulled out the pattern blocks. Jacob loves these and they are great for hand-eye coordination and learning to control frustration. This day Jacob was a little moody and showed some real frustration when the pieces did not stay in their spot. Although it was a bit annoying to me, it was a great experience to talk about frustration and how to control that frustration. After we talked about his feelings of frustration and lack of patience. I helped him come up with solutions to deal with his feelings.
We did two different flowers. The pattern boards can be found at PreKinders. They have a lot of different boards. I can find at least one to fit into our Monthly Theme every month. Prekinders is just a great resource to check out!
*Remember if you do not have pattern blocks you can find them online or at your local teacher store or print a page and cut out the shapes.
