Tot School: O is for Ocean

Kayleigh is 38 months
tot_school150
This week we worked on the letter Oo.  We used a lot of Confessions of A Homeschooler’s O is for Octopus printables.   I decided to expand the octopus theme to ocean because we live Atlantic coast.  She had a lot of fun and asked to do extra school several times.
Here she is working on her fine motor skills by tracing the lines.   I made this to go along with our ocean theme.  I made an “easy” version with just straight lines and an “advanced” version with more complicated tracing.  She did both but wasn’t very cooperative with the “advanced.”  By then she just wanted to scribble. 
You can download them here and here

She did some gem spooning and whale eraser tonging into our beach themed ice tray.  The tongs came from a kids cooking set that I got at IKEA.

Her favorite activity with this tray was feeding her “ugly baby” cereal. LOL

She sorted objects according to day or night time activities.  I made the mat and I got the sorting cards from Hubbard’s Cupboard.

No letter study would be complete with out a magnet page and letter matching from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

She worked in her Kumon Let’s Color and Let’s Fold books.  This was her first time using the folding book and she thought it was great fun.

She choose her Mega Blocks during free choice.  She built a tower for her Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, and Pascal dolls.  She loves those things. LOL

I made an Ocean Bingo game and she beat sissy twice.

Her many instruments are always a favorite activity.

Sissy’s butterflies for science started hatching and she was fascinated.  Here she is trying to feed them with a baby bottle. LOL

Later she tried to catch them with her net. LOL

To say that she loved it is an understatement.    I’m not sure I did.  Wood floors, beans EVERYWHERE.  I put down a large blanket the next time but she worked around it.  Sigh…

She made an Ocean Animal color book from 1+1+1=1.
