Dominoes, Paper and Play-Doh, Oh My!

First of all, I want to thank so many of y'all for your kind words of support as my family tries to mend itself from our recent loss. We are coming up on the two week mark and I still feel I am walking in a fog. I stay exhausted physically and mentally but, I still plod on trying to get a little normalcy back into our lives.

We are having a rough time getting back into a routine after the passing of my sister. I have sadly slacked on a few educational aspects of late which made itself known in our review time today! So, we are making a full turn around and going back to some name review activities.

I cut some felt pieces and grabbed some fabric paint to make our dominoes. I only used letters from his first name for our game.
For the large letter R, I tore small pieces from some paint sample cards we had left over and handed Little Mister a glue stick.
Finally, we pulled out the Play-Doh and shaped some letters.
