Shape Recognition

Setelah sebelumnya mengenalkan dan mencocokkan warna primer, kali ini K (15 m.o.) mulai dikenalkan dengan bentuk. Awalnya saya menggambarkan 4 macam bentuk lalu saya tempel dengan selotip di pintu.

Lalu Kaira yang saat itu mulai senang menunjuk-nunjuk gambar dan minta disebutkan namanya, langsung tanpa disuruh menunjuk-nunjuk masing-masing bentuk dan saya menyebutkan nama masing-masing bentuk. Lalu saya tes minta Kaira menunjukkan mana persegi panjang, mana bintang, mana lingkaran, dan mana bujur sangkar. Hasilnya sangat memuaskan karena pada akhirnya Kaira cepat menangkap dan menunjuk dengan tepat sesuai pertanyaan.

Nah besoknya, saya tambahkan velcro dan 4 macam bentuk pasangannya untuk Kaira tempelkan sendiri.

Well, waktu itu sepertinya baterai handphone sangat low jadi tidak sempat meng-capture hasil akhirnya, hanya sempat seperti di bawah ini. But Kaira surprisingly matched all the shapes correctly on her first attempt.

Coloured Magnets

And this is the second activity themed colour recognition. And this is very very simple. I just prepared 3 magnets of 3 primary colours and 3 circles of 3 primary colours drawn on a paper then sticked it on a steel tray.

And voila!! K (15 months old) matched all the colours right even though she hadn’t put the magnets right in the middle of the circles. Good job!!

Basic Colour Recognition

Wow.. I think I’ve been absent for two months? So sorry for the vacuum. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t in a mood of writing and I lately used my spare time to take a rest or read books or prepare acivities for baby K. Oh and yeah we also had holiday out last month but we’ll tell the stories later. Let’s get back to the track and I’ll fill this blog with the last two months’ activities.

At the age of 15 months old, I’ve been starting to recognize three basic colours to Kaira. First, I made these 6 simple circles of 3 basic colours in a paper (print it or hand draw it, whatever you like). I also cut 6 circles out of a used cardboard box and cut 6 circles of 3 basic colours that I drew and painted in a paper. Then, I glue the coloured papers on the cardboard box circles and laminated it by tape. The last step would be put the paper on the wall and secure it with tape and glue the velcro on each circles.

She did quite a good job. She matched it and I mention the colour. I also asked her to point out which is red, yellow, and blue.
