Surprisingly, once he sat down with a little direction- he didn't want to stop so each crayon I gave him, I repeated the name of the color numerous times while he used it. I helped him with the hamburger one. On UnitedStreaming.com we watched, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that type and Letter A from Letter TV


We went to the library to get books about cows, counting and shapes and came home with:


  1. Shape Spotters (All Aboard Math Reader) by Megan Bryant
  2. Cock-A-Doodle-Doo: A Farmyard Counting Book by Steve Lavis
  3. The Cow Buzzed by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha
  4. Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
  5. The Berenstain Bears: Down on the Farm by Stan & Jan Berenstain
  6. Daisy the Firecow by Viki Woodworth
  7. Sixteen Cows by Lisa Wheeler
  8. and at home we have Mr. Brown Can MOO! Can You? by Dr. Seuss
I have more activities for Danny to do this week and Camille is getting the 3R treatment- reading, handwriting/spelling and math. I'm glad we started this, Danny seems to have really taken to it. Of course, it was the first day but I think this is gentle enough to work at 3 years of age and right up our alley. Hopefully by the end of the week I can record Danny saying "Hey Diddle, Diddle".

Wow! Looks like you are off to a good start. My little one is almost exactly the same age as yours. I have been working with him but I haven't gotten totally "formal" with him yet. We are working on it though.
Good luck!!!

The video was so sweet! I think Mr. Danny is ready for the letter "C" with all of his cow books. What a go-getter!
