During our transportation theme, Hunter had fun making this great painting.
He had to taste the paint too.
Then he did a little more painting while checking out the mess he made on his hand.
Hailey wanted to make one too (and as you can see, Hunter is eating some more paint in the background.)
Hunter’s finished project.

Hunter is 14.5 months old
We missed a week of Tot School because Hunter was sick He had a cold that turned into an ear infection and he was just miserable. So, we took it easy for a week. We were back to work this week though and had a fun week.
Our theme was transportation and we were still focusing on the color red.
Hunter worked on a transportation puzzle. When he put the piece in the correct spot he got to hear the sound that the vehicle mades. He loved it!
He had to stop working for a minute to suck on his toe
Hunter also has this toy, when he matches up the vehicle it makes the sound of the vehicle. He usually needs help matching them up, but he gets so excited when he hears the sound.
We also read some books about transportation. This is one of his Lego books, where we can look at the pictures and build the vehicles.
The airplane and the car we made with Legos.
Hunter also tried out the train he got for Christmas.
He’s still not quite ready for it He prefers to just take it apart.
Hunter loved this parking garage. He had a lot of fun with all of his vehicles on the ramp.
Hailey wanted to make a picture using a car too. You can see Hunter in the background eating the paint off of his car.
Hunter used the d0-a-dot markers for the first time. He LOVED it!! He was not happy when it was time to put it away.
Sorting some yogurt melts into an ice cube tray.
Hailey and Hunter made these in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots have been 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!!
Today we made a school bus as part of our transportation theme.
First I gave Hailey 3 squares to draw some faces on for the windows on the bus.
Then I gave her a bus shape and had her spread a glue/water (just a little bit of water) mixture all over the bus.
Then she spread yellow tissue paper all over her bus.
Once the whole bus was covered, Hailey brushed a thin layer of the glue/water mixture over the bus.
Hailey added some windows and wheels.
Here is the finished school bus.
Then we did a little experiment:
Hailey dropped a ball of playdough into a bowl of water to see if it would sink or float. (It sunk.)
Then I shaped the playdough like a boat and asked her what she thought would happen if we put it back in the water. She thought it would still sink.
When she saw that it floated she was quite excited with the results. We talked about why this one floated and the first one did not.
Hailey finished up with this color by number from the Transportation Preschool Pack at Homeschool Creations.
