R was 15 months old at the time of this activity
The week of cognitive skills development continued with more colour fun.
To change things up for a drawing activity, R did some drawing on a box while sitting inside. I gave her just red, blue and yellow crayons so that we could continue to learn the primary colours. She had a great time in there!
We practiced the colour poem again after having a day off of it. Usually while we are practicing the poem, R is walking around. Today she was actually quite focused and listened, watched and played along with me better than usual. We practiced pointing to the foam shapes and saying the colour with a large emphasis on red, blue and yellow.
Finally, R explored the colour book we made together. I put a different colour on a two page spread. The reason for this is so that we can do a couple of activities:
a. I can ask her to point to a specific colour. With only having two options to choose from, it is more at R’s developmental level.
b. I can get her to say colour words when she eventually has the language skills to do so.
