Tot School


Hunter is 23 months old

We had another fun week at Tot School!

Tot School

We are learning all about spiders and we even caught a spider to observe.  Hunter really liked watching the spider!

Tot School

Color sorting with M&Ms onto different colored spiders.

I asked Hunter, “Where is the blue one?” and he pointed in his mouth because he had just eaten a blue M&M :-)

Tot School

Hunter loved searching through rice for some plastic spiders.

Spider Unit

We sang a little spider song.  We sang it to the tune of 10 little Indians:
Crawl, crawl, crawl like a spider.
Crawl, crawl, crawl like a spider.
Crawl, crawl, crawl like a spider.
Crawl around your web.
We used different words in place of crawl like pounce, jump, etc.

Hunter enjoyed some sensory bags this week- this one had shaving cream in it.

He also played with a sensory bag with shampoo in it.

E was our letter this week- we were making an elephant and didn’t have any gray paper, so Hunter colored the paper.

We have been learning about Thanksgiving and this week we learned about the Sioux Indians and made tee-pees.  Hunter worked a long time coloring his tee-pee.

Hailey and Hunter’s finished tee-pees.

Hunter likes to do whatever Hailey is doing, so he worked on coloring a picture just like she was doing.

Letter of the Week- Review


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.

Letter of the Week- Letter E


Our Letter last week  was E.  Here are some of things we did:

Hailey looked through the various letter E crafts at No Times for Flashcards and decided she wanted to do the Easter Egg E.

Then we made this super cute E is for Elephant using Hailey’s handprint that I saw at Homeschool Creations.

Here is what we did from RRSP:

Hailey showing off her verse that she colored.  She can do such a nice job coloring when she takes her time.

Cutting out her vocabulary words.

Practicing writing E.

Hailey loves using her verse to measure.  This weeks verse was short so it was much shorter than her- she always has to check and see if she is taller than her verse.  She thought it was great that she couldn’t even get it around her head.

Doing her cut and paste craft.  We practiced positional words with this activity.

Other stuff we did:

This was an Easter Egg letter match up that I found at 2 Teaching Mommies.  While Hailey did this match up she told me the letter sounds too.  There are only a few letters left that she doesn’t know the sounds for, meaning we won’t be doing a letter of the week for much longer.

We made a shape book that is from one of my Mailbox magazines.  Hailey colored the pages.

I put it together and then Hailey had to flip the top and bottom to match the shapes.  This held her interest for about 10 seconds.  Which is not nearly as long as it took me to put it together.

We did a Springtime ABC file folder using printables from 1+1+1=1.

The inside of the folder- Hailey had to match the upper and lowercase letters and stick them onto the velcro inside.

The back of the folder, where she can keep all of the letters.

Here is a fill in the number printable from Busy Bee Kids Prinables.

Lastly, I decided to start a journal with Hailey last Monday.  I asked her what her favorite thing was that she had done over the weekend.  She gave me her answer, I wrote it down and she copied it into her journal.  Then she drew a picture to go with it.

She was so proud of her journal.  She asked almost everyday to write in it again.  She loved it!

Letter of the Week Review E-H


After every 4 letters that we do I have a review week with Hailey.  One of the activities we do for review is to put together our Alphabet book.  This time we added these pages:

E is for Elephant Puzzle

F is for Fish

G is for Gingerbread

H is for House

I cut out the letters that Hailey decorated when we learned each letter and she glued them on to a piece of paper.

Then we put the pages into a binder that is Hailey’s alphabet book.

Hailey loves reading her alphabet book!

Another thing we do to review the letters is to make a little book for each letter.

Hailey colors several different pictures of words that start with E.

Then she cuts out the pictures.

And then glues them onto an index card.  When it’s dry I turn it into a book- she will eventually have one for every letter of the alphabet.

We also played Alphabet Bingo using the letters that she has learned so far.  This game has been a bit hit!!
