Tot School

Aug

Hunter is 31 months old.

Tot School

I can’t believe we are already at the end of the alphabet!  But, here we are at letter Z.

We are mostly on summer vacation now and Hunter has not had much interest in doing school- probably because Hailey isn’t doing any school work, so he doesn’t want to either.  But, here are the things we did get done:

Tot School

Hunter made a Z for Zebra, with some help from Hailey.

Tot School

He spent some time coloring.

Tot School

Hunter loves playing with his trains!

Tot School

He worked on putting together his Interlox.

Tot School

He wanted me to build a house for Mickey and Minnie.

Tot School

This toy really frustrates Hunter because he wants to be able to push all of the “nails” down at the same time, but it isn’t possible to do.

Tot School

Hunter worked on his fishing puzzle.

Tot School

He also enjoyed playing in the sand and making a sand castle.

Soon I will be sharing what we will be doing for preschool starting in September, so check back to see what we’re going to use for our curriculum.

Letter Y activities:

(Printables for the letter Y are from 1+1+1=1 and Confessions of a Homeschooler.)

Tot School

Hunter used colored pencils to color his letter Y paper.

Tot School

 Hunter loves the do-a-dot papers and has gotten pretty good at stamping the circles.

Tot School

He added some letter Y stamps to his Y paper.

Tot School

We glued yellow yarn onto the letter Y.

Tot School

Y is for Yo Yo.

Shapes and colors:

Tot School

Hunter used water colors to decorate his shape paper.

Tot School

He colored the yo-yos the correct color with his crayons.

Sensory:

Tot School

Hunter had beads in his sensory bin this week.  He used a measuring cup to scoop the beads from one bin to the other.

Manipulatives:

Tot School

He put magnetic pom poms onto the Y is for Yarn page.

The pictures in this post are actually from several weeks ago- and it was the week of our last official day of school for Hailey.  So, we took some last day of school pictures and this is Hunter on our last day of school.

Tot School

The top paper in this picture is one that Hunter did on our first day of Tot School back in September and the bottom page is the one he did on the last day of school.  It was fun to compare his coloring and his answers to the questions.

Next week we will finish up the alphabet and then we have some other fun activities to do during the summer (until the baby arrives:-)).

Letter X activities:

(Printables for the letter X are from 1+1+1=1 and Confessions of a Homeschooler.)

Tot School

Hunter coloring his letter X paper.

Tot School

Stamping the letter X onto this paper.  He loves using the stamps!

Tot School

We made an X is for X-ray

Shapes & Colors:

Tot School

Our shape this week was the rectangle- Hunter worked hard at stamping some rectangles onto his paper.

Tot School

Hunter knows all of his colors, but he really enjoys doing these printables, so we keep using these.  He doesn’t need any help– he looks at the color word and finds the right marker to color the picture.

Sensory:

Tot School

One day Hunter played with shaving cream in his sensory bin.  It was a huge mess, but he had a great time.

Other:

Tot School

We practiced counting by putting a number on the paper and then counting out the correct number of pieces.

Letter W activities:

(Printables for the letter W are from 1+1+1=1 and Confessions of a Homeschooler.)

Tot School

Hunter loves doing the do-a-dot printables for the letters.  I have to make sure we do one of these every week.

Tot School

 Hunter colored his letter W paper and then glued some foam Ws onto the window.

Tot School

I love that Hunter can do these color papers all by himself.  He looks at the color word and then finds the right marker to color with.

Tot School

W is for Worm.
(I usually just do the same letter craft with Hunter that I did with Hailey when she was in tot school… but lately I’ve been asking Hailey for ideas and she has some really creative ideas for our letter crafts and this was one of her great ideas.)

Shapes:

Tot School

We focused on the triangle again this week- I’ve been doing the same shape for 2 weeks since Hunter does not know all of his shapes yet.  Hunter used a triangle shaped block to do some triangle paint stamping.

Manipulatives:

Tot School

This is another activity that I can just put out on the table for Hunter and when wants to, he’ll just sit down and do it without any help.  I put the paper onto a baking sheet and then he puts the magnetic pom poms onto the circles.

Other:

Tot School

We are continuing out caterpillar/butterfly unit.  We ordered some caterpillars and watched them grow and then form a chrysalis.

Tot School

Every day Hailey read us a book about butterflies.  She even used a butterfly puppet when she read on this particular day.  Hunter definitely enjoyed it!

Tot School

Hailey and Hunter painted one side of a butterfly, then folded the other side over to show how butterflies wings are symmetrical.

Tot School

Hunter’s butterfly on the top and Hailey’s on the bottom.

Tot School

These activities are actually from a couple of weeks ago, I’m behind in my posting- so this is Hunter working on Father’s Day picture frame gift.  Hailey painted half of it and Hunter painted the other half.  Later they added some scrapbook stickers of tools but I never took a picture of the finished frame.
