Juan Or and the Shape-sorting Toy (Part 3)




Last time, Mommy blogged before about how Juan Or was already able to fit the right shapes into the right holes with very little mistakes. As of yesterday, Mommy noticed that Juan Or is already able to match the shapes to their holes correctly at any one time, only thing is that he still can't comprehend how to orientate the shape so that it slides into the hole. His orientation of the shapes into the holes is more of luck - if he happens to orientate it correctly, then it goes in, if not, he keeps on struggling with the task until he becomes so impatient, annoyed and frustrated! He even ended up shouting and crying just because he can't get it in!

Good improvement Juan Or!

When Juan Juan was much younger, she had poor sense of hands eyes coordination. In order to fit in the right shape, she used to turn the whole shape-sorting toy instead of simply rotating the block itself!

Alice Law, eventually at one point in their development, children are sure to catch up with that skill.

Smallkucing, hahaha....talking about ganas, Juan Or is not ganas with this toy, but ganas with one photo album and also one book which has magnets stored in a transparent box attached to the book. He tore the photo album's transparent plastic pocket and detached and tore the box for storing the magnets. hehehehe....

mNhL, hehehe...Juan Or follows my character where that one is concerned. I know I was like that too as a child (till around 10 years old). Cannot solve one mathematical problem, think, think, think, still cannot get, so cried angrily...hehehe.
