Tot School Week of May 10th

E is 27 months
Strep throat visited our house last week. :(  Because of this we didn’t have too many tot school lessons this week.  When I say too many, I really mean we only had one day of fun. :)  Here is what we did on that day!
I found some AWESOME resources on-line at Confessions of a Homeschooler.  While we don’t yet have a colored printer (we’re working on it!)  so I didn’t print off many of her resources, but if you really would be doing yourself a favor by checking her out.  We used  some ideas for the letter B. 
100_0575 We colored a letter B…but it ended up like this.  E was really excited though, so it was all good.
100_0576 100_0578
We sorted buttons (you know, because B is for Button) and E got into it. I got the idea from the butterfly sorting here.  We’ve never done this before, so I only used big and little and nixed “medium”.  She sorted them, and then dumped them out, and sorted them out again.  It was a hit, and next time, we’ll use medium. :) 
100_0580 100_0583 E liked the buttons…A LOT.  I cut a hole in the top of crystal light container and let her put them in like a piggy bank.  This activity really served no purpose educationally, she just like it.  Its a cheap form of entertainment for you fellow thrifty moms. :)
100_0585We also used the letters from our leap frog fridge phonics and matched up the letters in the names of colors.  I’ve seen cards like this you can print from 1+1+1=1, but I did this on the fly. I just wrote the colors down on paper, pulled the letters off the fridge and used a cookie sheet.  We matched the letters up to the names of the colors.  The only problem with this: fridge phonics letters are HUGE.  It didn’t work too well.  Small magnetic letters would’ve worked nice.
100_0589 Lastly we colored “B for Butterfly” which I printed off from Confessions of Homeschooler
100_0595 That was our week.  Be sure and check out what others did at 1+1+1=1!
