Tot School

Kayleigh is 32 months
Tot School

We didn't really have a theme this week but our Letter of the Week was I and we did a lot of the inchworm stuff from over at Confessions of a Homeschooler along with a mishmash of this and that.  

Literacy Activities

We tried our our Scholastic Alphabet Mats this week.  The mats are in random order, so there wasn't one that had just the letters that we've covered.  So I just picked one and had her match capital letter to capital letter as I told her the names.

We sorted capital and lowercase Ii, did some inchworm "spelling", an Ii poke page, and an I is for Inchworm magnet page using our pom pom magnets.  All from COAH.

And we caught up on some of our ABC book.  We did G is for Gold (glitter) and H is for Hearts.

Math and Fine Motor Activities

She sorted inchworms from largest to smallest.  This was the first time we've tried this.  Up until now we just sorted big/little or small/medium/large.  Kayleigh did a great job and was very pleased with herself.

She played with a Geoboard for the first time.  I tried to show her how to make shapes with the bands but she was not interested.  So it was more of a fine motor activity than a math activity.

Kayleigh practiced her writing skills in a varitey of ways.  She worked in her Kumon My First Book Of Mazes, on an inchworm pre-writing sheet that I made for her, and did this adorable number maze from 2 Teaching Mommies.

Learning Toys and Other Stuff

She played with her Lauri Toys Shape and Color Sorter, her Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Cookie Shape Surprise, and a did a gem balance activity that I saw on Shannon's Tot School.

Be sure to click the Tot School button at the top of the page and see what the other tots are up too.

Hey, this week we're right next to each other on the Tot School blog! You guys always do such colorful activities with a lot of variety. I haven't started working on writing letters with J yet or drawing lines to match things up. More good ideas!!

Great week! You can really see her concentration on the geo board activity. Take care, Kerri

I need to get that Kumon maze book! And a geoboard. :) I was surprised that my little guy had some trouble with the little to big sequencing activities. He wasn't terrible at it, but a couple in the middle often get reversed, so I made a few animal ones for him. I should print some more - thanks for the reminder. Sounds like you had a great week!

Oh wow, it looks like she is having so much fun learning! That's what it's all about :) I need to get MUCH more organized so I can offer Bram more activities like those.
