Hunter is 21 months old.
We had another fun week at Tot School! I finally feel like I’m getting into a routine with homeschooling Hailey, so the activities I did with Hunter this week were a bit more purposeful than they have been in the last few weeks.
Hunter made this cute “A is for Alligator” that I found at Totally Tots. Hailey loves to work with Hunter and help him, and of course he loves to have her help.
A is for Alligator.
Hunter is also learning the color red and circles, so he had fun stamping red circles.
Hunter loves the printables from the Zoomin Movin Alphabet. This week he seemed to understand that he can stamp the do-a-dot marker onto the circles on the paper.

Having fun dancing.
Hunter made this apple parts craft that went in his Apple Totbook, which I will be sharing sometime this week.
We also learned all about Johnny Appleseed this week and made a cute craft about him, which I will also share this week.
Hunter loved pretending to be Johnny Appleseed and wearing a pot on his head.
Hailey and Hunter watched a short movie (about 17 minutes) about Johnny Appleseed on YouTube.
Hunter made an apple basket craft, which I will also share this week.
This Apple Tree Activity turned out super cute!
Hunter enjoyed making this Apple Core Craft with Hailey.
We are using Road Trip USA for Hailey’s geography curriculum and we made a Robin Craft this week, to go along with Connecticut. Hunter loves doing everything that Hailey does

This week we are reviewing letters E, F, G and H. So I don’t have a new letter to share. Instead I am going to share the activities we have done for all of the letters so far. I will include links to the original posts. Many of our letter of the week crafts come from No Time for Flashcards.
Last week we reviewed the letters A-D. Here is a look at some of the activities we did to reinforce the letters.
We used our letter cookie cutters and cut out the letters A-D.
Hailey sorted the letters A-D.
We started putting together Hailey’s book of ABC’s using the letter projects we did during the week we focused on that letter.
For each letter, Hailey glued the letter template that she has decorated onto construction paper and then put it into a page protector. Then she also added her letter project. When we finish the whole alphabet I think we’ll have a pretty cute book!
We officially started back to “school” last week. I know it’s a bit late but I wanted to wait until after our trip to Disney World to start. So, last week was our first week. We are going to go through the alphabet all over again. So we started this week with the letter Aa.
The first activity we did was to decorate the letter A. Hailey used water colors to paint the letter A.
We are going to make an alphabet book this year with a page for each letter. I found this idea at Homeschool Creations. Hailey cut out the apple shape all by herself, then ripped it in half (to make it look like it had been eaten). Then she ripped the white rectangle and added some fingerprints for seeds. We will use this for our Aa page in the alphabet book.
Then Hailey made fingerprint ants. She had a hard time understanding my directions of three dots right next to each other to make the ant. But we got a few ants out of it.
Hailey practiced writing the letter Aa on these wipe off cards. She did pretty good tracing the letters but then she decided to color the whole card, so you can’t see where she practiced writing.
