Archive for the ‘Letter T’ Category
We have been busy working our way through the letters in Hunter’s name. Our latest letter was the letter T.
Hunter loved playing in the tunnel.
Hailey made him a letter T.
He used a toothbrush to paint a letter T.
Once the paint was dry, he cut out tigers to glue onto the T.
He used a tractor, a truck, and a train to paint tracks.
He played in his Thomas the Train tent.
Hunter put decorative tape onto the letter T.
He used water colors to paint the letter T.
We made a T is for turtle craft.
Hunter is such a good big brother and (usually) plays so nicely with Harper.
Playing Connect 4.
As always, it’s been fun and busy doing preschool here at Our Crafts N Things.
Hunter is 29 months old.
We were back to our regular Tot School activities this week and had a good week.
Letter T activities:
(Printables for the letter T are from 1+1+1=1.)
Hunter started the week out by coloring his letter T paper. I’ve noticed lately that he actually colors the objects on the paper, rather than just coloring all over the page.
Hunter loves using the do-a-dot markers. He used them to stamp the letter Ts on the train.
T is for Train
Our shape this week is the square.
Hunted used blocks to stamp squares onto his paper. He really enjoyed this and asked to do it again later in the day.
Hunter glued squares onto a square to make a face.
We did some puzzles to practice shapes.
I put grass seed into Hunter’s sensory bin this week. He really enjoyed this and played with it for a long time!
I put soapy water into the water table and Hailey and Hunter played in it and used sponges to scrub it clean.
Hunter used his rainbow pegs to make a vacuum- he pretended to vacuum the floor with this.
I love finding Hunter taking books off the shelf to read.
Hailey read Hunter his Highlights magazine.
Hailey studied worms for science, and of course Hunter wanted to join in the fun.
Hunter and Hailey created little worm habitats so that we could observe our worms. I was surprised that Hunter actually picked the worms up to put them in his jar because he is not usually a fan of things like that.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
Last week our letter of the week was T. Here are some of the activities we did:
T is for Tractor from Totally Tots.
Tt is for Tulips using hand and footprints.
Making a T with the playdough mat from Homeschool Creations.
Practicing writing T in her princess workbook.
Do-a-dot letter T from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Here are some of the things we did from the RRSP curriculum:
Hailey showing off her verse that she colored. She memorized her verse and we talked about the 10 commandments this week. Every time Rich or I did something she didn’t like (for example told her to do something she didn’t want to do) she would tell us we were breaking one of God’s rules. Of course we would remind her of the Honor Your Father and Mother commandment.
Cutting out her letter T vocabulary words.
Showing off her sight word she colored (find sight word printables here).
Using power point from RRSP and reading the sentence.
Checking to see if her verse would fit around her head.
Doing her 10 commandments craft.
Other stuff we did:
Finding the word “the” (her sight word) in her Sight Word workbook.
Calling out the shapes during Shape Bingo that I made using DLTK’s custom Bingo cards.
We are using “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons” and Hailey was sounding out the word mat. She made the sound for each letter and then said, “Does that say mat?” She was so proud of herself!! And I was proud too!!
Stop by Confessions of a Homeschooler to check out her giveaway for the Expedition Earth curriculum she created. It’s amazing!!
Our letter this week is the letter T and so we made a Train.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper, glue, marker, eyes, scissors.
Cut out the train tracks and some shapes for the train.
Glue the tracks onto the paper in the shape of a T.
Add a train on the tracks.
The completed T is for Train. (You’ll notice our train has eyes- Hailey asked to add eyes to the train and when I told her that trains don’t have eyes she said, “Thomas does.” So we added eyes.)
