Hunter is 22 1/2 months old.
We had a fun week at Tot School!
I just have to say that as you look at the pictures you might notice that Hunter is wearing the same shirt every day. He has recently become quite attached to his Lightning McQeen pajama shirt. He insists on wearing all. of. the. time! I decided that if we are not leaving the house I am not fighting that battle with him. So, that is why he always has it on
Hunter’s letter this week was the letter D.
He made a “D is for Dinosaur” using an idea I saw at Homeschool Creations.
Hunter loves the do-a-dot markers and had fun stamping the letter D from COAH.
Hunter practiced his counting, using these fun dinosaur numbers. (from COAH)
I had Hunter use this printable to practice color sorting. (from COAH)
We have been learning all about bats, so Hunter had fun making a bat craft.
Hunter’s finished bat.
We learned how a mother bat uses her sense of smell to find her baby bat. I dipped cotton balls into different things like vinegar, vanilla, coffee and perfume. I let Hailey pick a “baby” and then I blind folded her and had her find her “baby” using her sense of smell. We had a lot of fun doing that, so Hunter wanted to be a part too. He loved smelling the different cotton balls!
Hailey just started a spider unit and this was our first experiment. We learned how spiders eat their prey by injecting venom into it, which turns the insect into liquid and then the spider drinks the food. So, Hunter wanted to do the experiment too! We put our prey (a sugar cube) in a cup. Then we injected it with venom (water) and drank our prey. They both loved it!
We made a spider glyph, which you can see here. Hunter made his the way he wanted and didn’t really care about the directions I love how his spider turned out!

Our letter last week was the letter Dd. Here are some of the activities that we did.
Hailey used the Do-a-Dot art to decorate the letter Dd.
We played with Playdough and used a cookie cutter D to cut out the letter D.
For our alphabet book we made a D is for Doctor bag that we saw over at Homeschool Creations.
You’ll need: white, red and black construction paper, scissors, tape, glue and some (child safe) doctor supplies.
Here is Hailey working on putting the medical supplies into her doctor bag. (She was sick last week, so this particular day happened to be a pajama day!)
The outside of her D is for Doctor Bag.

We also ate some donuts to go along with the letter D, but I forgot to take a picture.
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 our letter of the week was D. Here are some of the activities we did through out the week:
Hailey made a “D is for Dog.” It’s a Dalmatian with dots.
Hailey told me that since Daddy starts with a D she thought we should make a “daddy.” So, I had her make a shape Daddy.
Hailey read her D book and practiced her D words.
Practicing writing Ds in her princess workbook.
Hailey wanted to practice writing her Ds again on another day, so here she is doing some more Ds.
This is a Letter Hunt story from Confessions of a Homeschooler. We read the story and then Hailey had to find all of the Ds.
Another letter D hunt.
The rest of these activities are from the 1+1+1=1 Raising Rock Stars curriculum.
More practice writing the letter D.
Hailey with her verse for the week. It was so cute hearing her say “complaining or disputing.”
Hailey had to come up with some things that she could say when she is told to do something that would not be complaining or disputing. Here she is putting together her craft using the phrases she came up with.
Hailey reading her book with the sight word “all.”
