Learning through play – Blocks and Shapes…

This past few days I started doing constructive activity with chinito Inigo. We were focusing our learning on the topic that he really love. I am observing mainly on where he will lead me.

I dont want to force him with something that he doesn’t like. After all that’s the objective of learning through play.We had lots of fun learning and exploring together. However, I quickly learned that teaching my chinito is very different from teaching kuya A before.

When I would teach kuya A we could choose a time, sit down and move from one activity to the next with ease. With chinito Inigo it wasn’t quite the same. He likes to be moving and didn’t want to be seated most of the time. This was fine with me I don’t think he learns any less if he is pacing while I read a story rather then sitting down.

Above all else I want him to enjoy learning and foster a love for it. I don’t feel like I would help do this by constantly forcing him from one activity to the next when his heart is set on doing something else. He is only almost three after all so I am learning to be flexible and move at his pace.

Today we had a lot of fun activities using these wooded blocks. After sorting it by colors the other day this time chinito Inigo wants to sort it by shape. I’ve got the shape chart from google, print, laminate and voila instant activity!

Learning through play – Build a Bricks..

We are big fans of simple and easy activities that use materials we already have at our house. 

We came up with this quick activity today. Inigo and Isabelle have had a wonderful morning playing. Bricks is amazing because it allows the kids to be free with their imagination and be creative.

Added bonuses are working on colors, shapes and fine motor skills. It also develops and creates childhood memories through play. Although most of the time my one year old is happily distracting his kuya 😁😝.

Learning through play – Blocks of FUN

When it is raining it means a lot of indoor time, but it doesn’t always have to be boring!

Our chinito Inigo have been playing with blocks so much. This by far has to be one of the simplest activity for toddlers that’s always on the move!

For me it was a win-win activity not only did he have fun But it also helped him improve his color recognition by counting and sorting.

Stay safe and dry everyone!
