• Color Activities:

• Shape Activities:  
Play Dough Shapes Play Dough Shapes - Roll purple play dough into snakes and lay on the Diamond worksheet to form a diamond.  Allow the child to play with the diamond as you discuss the shape. 

• Animal Activities:   
- Vertical Surface Coloring or Painting - Children develop fine motor skills best when they work on a vertical surface.  When holding a writing utensil or brush against a vertical surface, muscles in the wrist and hand are strengthened.  These muscles are not used when writing on a horizontal surface.  For this reason, place art projects on a vertical surface as much as is feasible. This week, paint the Pig worksheet with purple paint on a vertical surface.
- A pig says "oink."
- Find pictures of pigs in the books that you read.
- Crawl on the floor and oink like a pig. 

• Taking Care of Me Activities:
For the next 14 weeks, the child will learn various articles of clothing and how to remove main pieces.  Use these words as you dress and undress the child.  This week focus on shoes. and removing shoes.  You may need to unlace shoes or partially remove them to help the child be successful. 

• Book of the Week Ideas:  
- Point and count the pigs.
- Allow the child to turn the page when needed.
- When the pig tells the wolf "no," sign the word as you say it.  (If the word is not included in your book, simply add it where appropriate.)

• Fine Motor Skill:  
Stack five 1" blocks.  Count the blocks as you or the child add them. 

• Gross Motor Skill:  
Music Stop and Go with Music - Continuing with obedience training, teach the child to stop and go with music.  Use a CD or app to play music and while the music plays, dance or march.  When the music stops, freeze.  Use the words "stop" and "go" depending on whether the music is stopped or playing.  The goal is for the child to immediately stop when the music stops.
