Our week in TOTSchool and Preschool
Emily is 38 months old and Juliette is 9 months old
The girls playing with the instruments waiting for Music Class to begin. I love that both Emily and Juliette are able to participate together. They both enjoy the class so much!
The girls made star covered S’s to add to their Alphabet Books.
Then they did a letter hunt that Sarah made and used bingo daubers to mark the S when they found it.
Emily planted strawberry seeds. This was a kit that came with the pot, compressed soil pellet, and seeds. Emily liked watching the soil expand as we added water to it. Now she is excited to see her plant grow!
Emily picked the green stamp pad to do some stamping.
Emily sorted Plants and Animals. She practiced cutting, pasting and classifying in this activity.
Sarah printed these cards from Confessions of a Homeschooler and I laminated them. We gave the girls clothes pins. First they counted the dots, said the number and then clipped the correct number of clothes pins onto the card. This activity was great practice in number recognition as well as practicing fine motor skills.
Emily did this number match worksheet. She counted the hearts and drew a line to match it to the numeral. When she counts I had her put a dot on each heart so that she remembered which ones she counted. It also helps with one to one correspondence.
For our stART project we read Fancy Nancy Every Day is Earth Day and made Earth Day Cookies.
Emily built towers with her Duplo’s. She spent all afternoon building, counting and sorting with these toys. Even Juliette had fun joining in and playing with them.
Emily used a dropper to water her plant. She has checked it every morning to see if there are any sprouts. I can’t wait for her to find them!!
During Art Group we focused on Triangles. We did negative space paintings. Emily taped cut out triangles onto a piece of construction paper and then painted the around the edges of the paper. Then she pulled of the triangles. It is such a neat effect!
We also made a triangle collage. I cut out all different sized triangles and then Emily placed them onto the sticky side of a triangle shaped piece of contact paper. She said that she was making hers look like a tree and stacked a bunch of the triangles together.
Tiny Tot School
Juliette enjoys exploring all of Braeden’s toys. The rain stick entertained her for a while.
Juliette digging for Duplo’s. I loved how she climbed up and over the bin and tried to get all the different pieces.
When Emily’s tower fell over Juliette grabbed a group that stayed stacked together. She worked really hard at pulling them all apart all by herself. I kept putting more together to give her once she finished. She was so focused on this.
