Hunter is 27 months old.

Tot School

We’ve had a kind of crazy 2 weeks with the stomach bug going around our family.  It took us 2 weeks to do 1 weeks worth of activities, but we are finally all on the mend and back to normal (I hope).

Letter O Activities:

Tot School

I used several printables from 1+1+1=1.  Hunter always starts out by coloring his letter of the week paper.  Some weeks he puts a few scribbles on the paper and says he is done.  Other times he spends a very long time coloring every part of the paper.

Tot School

He tried his first lacing activity, and he did pretty well (with some help).

Tot School

Putting together the letter O puzzle

Tot School

Pointing out an O on the ostrich.

Tot School

Hunter glued foam letter Os onto the ostrich.

Tot School

We made an O is for Octopus.  Hunter spent a while using his do-a-dot markers to decorate the O.

Tot School

The finished octopus.

Tot School

After we sang the alphabet I asked Hunter to point to the letter O on his ABC board.  I expected him to (possibly) find the O flashcard.  Instead he pointed to an O on the boarder.  I was excited that he really recognized the letter O.

Manipulatives:

Tot School

Hunter is just loving his blocks lately!

Tot School

Sensory bin:

Tot School

The only sensory bin we did this week was with foam letters.

Other:

Tot School

Painting with water colors… maybe all the other moms already know this, but I found a great way to do water colors with a toddler.  Before Hunter started painting, I took an eye dropper and dropped a few little drops of water into each color.  After a few minutes, the paint was all ready to use without Hunter having to remember to dip his brush in the water before the paint.

Tot School

We made an N is for numbers… and I found out that Hunter can identify some of his numbers.

Tot School

Hunter worked on sorting his rainbow pegs by color.  It really bothered him that there wasn’t enough room for all of the colors to have their own row.  He kept taking pieces out and trying to make room for the purple pegs.

Tot School

He liked making a necklace with the rainbow pegs.

Tot School

He worked on pounding some nails.

Tot School

Hunter did some building with some blocks.

Sensory bins:

Tot School

We have been busy having lots of fun in Tot School!  We had 2 short weeks, with only 3 days of school each week.  So, this post covers what we did during the last 2 weeks.

Letter M activities:

Tot School

Hunter glued pom poms onto the M and the monkeys.  We used this and several other printables from COAH.

Tot School

Hunter lined up some Unifx cubes on the letter M.

Tot School

Hunter colored the letter M.

Tot School

Hunter used water colors to paint this M paper.  We also used this and several other printables from 1+1+1=1.

Tot School

He stamped the letter M on this mouse and then glued on some foam Ms.

Tot School

I’m pretty sure the M&M activities were his favorite :-)  Although he ate most the M &Ms instead of putting them on the paper.  I gave him a little pile of M&Ms and told him to put them on the M on his paper.  He said, “I can’t” and then stuffed them right in his mouth hahaha.

Tot School

He practiced color sorting with the M&Ms.

Tot School

We made this M is for Mike (or M is for Monster).

Tot School

We read 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.  Hunter loved this book and has been singing about the monkeys ever since.

Tot School

I made a Five Little Monkeys lapbook for Hunter.

Tot School

The inside of the lapbook.  Hunter loved this!!  We had so much fun with this lapbook.

Manipulatives:

Tot School

Hunter worked on his alphabet puzzle.

Tot School

These rainbow pegs kept Hunter busy for a long time!

Sensory Bins:

I have decided to do a couple of small sensory bins each week with Hunter.

Tot School

Hunter liked playing with the beads.

Tot School

The yarn was fun too.

Tot School

The bean seeds were definitely his favorite.

Hunter loved the sensory bins!!  They all kept him occupied for a very long time.

(I was closely supervising Hunter during the sensory bin activities as the beads and beans are both choking hazards).

Other stuff:

Tot School

Hunter had fun in our tunnel.

Tot School

Fun dance party :-)

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.

Tot School

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.

Spider Unit

You can see some of the other spider fun we had by clicking on the picture above.

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.

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