This week in tot school we learned all about the forest! These are just some of the things we did, and you can see more pictures of our activities from Madonna, at A Mommy Talks.
We worked on the letter P this week. We made this P for Pine Tree craft that is inspired by the letter creations from No Time for Flashcards. You can use the letter P template from here, but I just used construction paper and drew the P on. :)
In addition to working on some beginning letter sounds we read quite a few books this week. Here are some of the books we read.
We had a lot of fun with math this week. We started the week by sorting pine cones by their sizes. E loves sorting, so this was a good way to start the week.
On day 2 we counted pine trees in our pine tree count activity. We used the matching number cards to place the right number beside the right number of trees.
To finish out the week with math, we made this roll and graph. In this activity we used a printable die with animal pictures on it and rolled it. We used a marker to mark each time we rolled a particular animal. I really thought that this might be over E’s head, but she did a great job with this, and liked using the marker to color all of our boxes.
We made this Raccoon in the Forest after reading Little Raccoon’s Nighttime Adventures, which is one of E’s current favorites.
This book has sentimental value, because a long time ago my daddy would read it to me. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like you can buy it out and about any longer, but keep your eyes open at thrift stores and yard sales!
