1. Post the new letter on your learning board and trace it in the learning book. You can teach your child to trace the shape of the letter using their finger in pudding, finger paint, a shallow tray (cookie sheet) filled with rice or beans, etc. Point out the letter of the week around the room and make sounds for letter.
2. Put the number of the week on the learning board and trace it in learning book. Introduce the number with the corresponding number of objects of your choice. You may wish to use snacks such as crackers, cheerios, etc. to eat and count at the same time. After you have counted the objects emphasize the written symbol and word for the number.
3. Put a picture of the shape on the learning board and trace it in the learning book. Collect 3 - 5 everyday objects in the shape of the week. Talk about each object and the shape with your child. Walk around the house looking for more of this shape.
3. Show the color to be learned on the learning board and color in the learning book color spot. Wear some article of clothing in the color you are learning, the day it is introduced. Collect 3-5 everyday objects in the color of the week. Talk about it and walk around the house looking for more of this color. (Add the color to your meals by eating a food that color, eating off a plate of the week's color, etc.)
