We had a great week at Tot School this week!

He used his do-a-dot markers to dot the letter N.

I made a Nemo lapbook for Hunter.

Hunter enjoyed using his Nemo lapbook.

Hunter painted a letter N paper from 1+1+1=1.

Tot School

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

Manipulatives:

Tot School

Hunter sorted his bears.

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:

I put sea shells in the sensory bin one day.  Hunter was not very interested in the shells.

I put macaroni noodles in his bin another day, which he loved.

Hunter is 27 months old.

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 :-)

Ocean Animals Tot Book

13
Aug

Over the last month we have been learning all about the ocean/beach.  Hailey made a lapbook about dolphins, so I decided to have Hunter make his first lapbook too- or a tot book, since he’s a toddler.  I knew just where to go to find a good tot book to make for Hunter.  When Hailey was a toddler she made her first tot book about Veggie Tales using 1+1+1=1, so I decided to look there to try to find something to make with Hunter.  Of course, I found a perfect Ocean Animals Tot Book!

Here is the completed Ocean Animals Tot Book.

Ocean Animals Tot Book

Hunter colored the different ocean animals different colors for the accordion book part of the tot book.  This was the only part of the tot book where he had to do anything before I put it together, the rest of it was just me cutting things out and putting them together.

Ocean Animals Tot Book

 Hunter seemed pretty pleased when he looked inside.

These are the cards from “Match the Animals.”

 Looking through the letters in the “Ocean Animals ABCs.”  This does not include the entire alphabet- only 8 letters- which is perfect for a toddler.

Ocean Animals Tot Book

 Hunter loved the counting book “How Many Animals in the Sea?”  He counts to 3, so he enjoyed doing that.  The book goes up to 5, which again is perfect for a toddler.

This Tot Book was a lot of fun and Hunter really enjoys it!  I have left it out where he can get it and I have found him looking at it several times.  I made the cover for it, but you can get all of the other printables to make it from 1+1+1=1.
