Travis traced the letter N today and enjoyed the two challenges I presented him with after to make 3-D models.
For the first, I gave him three new pencils. Could he figure out how to position the three to form upper case N?
He had to work closely from a picture to see how it was done, but soon had the first two pencils positioned correctly.
Hmm, should that final pencil be straight up and down, or at an angle? Tada!
Our lower case n made him giggle. Ahead of time, I had cooked a few pieces of spaghetti. I gave him a cooked piece and an uncooked piece. The hard noodle became the straight line of n.
He wiggled around the cooked noodle to form the rest of the letter. Then impishly gobbled it up!
