Tot School


Hunter is 23 months and 364 days (he’ll be 2 tomorrow, sniff sniff)

We had a great time at Tot School!!  Hunter learned about the letter H, owls and gingerbread men.

Hailey does the calendar every morning with Hunter.  She is such a good little teacher and Hunter loves it when she works with him!

Hunter loves the printables from Royal Baloo.  Here he is using several of them for the letter H:

Hailey has been learning all about owls in science, so Hunter has been joining in and doing some owl activities too.  Several of the ideas are from an owl unit by Deanna Jump.

Hunter made this cute little owl.

He really enjoyed this owl poem and loved pointing and saying parts of the poem.

After we read “The Gingerbread Cowboy,” Hunter made a candy cane cactus.

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 H


Our letter last week was the letter H- here are some of the things we did:

Hailey made this H is for House from Totally Tots.

She also made this H is for Horse using her handprints.

Hailey loves these letter hunts from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Do-a-Dot letter H page from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Reading her Letter H book- we have vocabulary pictures that she colors, cuts out and then glues to index cards.  I turn each one into a letter book.

Definitely one of Hailey’s favorite things to do- play on Starfall.

This has the letters on it we have done so far with RRSP.  To review the sounds we sing this song to the tune of “Do You Know the Muffin Man?”
Oh do you see the letter [I]
the letter [I]
the letter [I]
Oh do you see the letter [I]
it says [iii iii iii]

Oh yes I see the letter [I]
the letter [I]
the letter [I]
Oh yes I see the letter [I]
it says [iii iii iii]

Doing a maze in her princess workbook following the letter Hh.

Here are some of the things we did from RRSP:

Showing off her verse that she colored.

Putting her vocabulary words into the baseball card sheet protector.

Practicing writing Hh.

Color by number for her sight word of the week (and).


Gluing her shape parents to go along with her verse.


Practicing writing her sight word in her Sight Words book.

Working on her Clothespin ABCs where she has to match the capital and lowercase letters (using the printable from 1+1+1=1).

Doing an activity for the number 7 (the number of the week) in a Disney book.

Counting How Many (from 1+1+1=1) and putting the clothespin on the correct number.

Our theme last week was horses (at Hailey’s request) and we spent all week doing horse activities and reading horse books.  On Saturday we went to a small maple farm and they were giving pony rides.

The perfect way to end our letter H/horse theme week!

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!!
