Tot School-Halloween

E is 33 months

This week in tot school we worked with a fun, and not spooky, Halloween theme!  Here are some of the things we did this week, and you can see more with Madonna over at A Mommy Talks

Language Arts Activities:
This week we worked on a couple of activities.  One of them was this Jack-O-Lantern letter match.  E had to match the uppercase Jack-O-Lantern to its lowercase stem.  We had fun with this activity, but we never did all 26 letters in one sitting, because I thought that was a little daunting.  We broke it down into several sets and worked on a little each day.

We also read quite a few books.

Math Activities:
I drew a pumpkin shape on a foam sheet for this activity.  We used play-dough and made shapes to make a face for the pumpkins.  E can roll the play-dough pretty easily, so we were able to make circles without much trouble.  Other shapes took mommy’s help, but E directed me on what shape and how many sides.


We also worked on this bat roll and color.  We printed out the bat printable and used a dice to tell us how many circles to color in.

Halloween Fun:
We played memory this week with Halloween themed memory cards.  There were 8 matches in all, but we started out with 4 matches at a time.  We will probably play with these a couple more times this week, too!

For our family night, and as a science experiment, we made glow in the dark Jell-O.  You can read more about that here.  We had a fun time with it!

Our family ventured out on a camping trip this weekend, and we had a wonderful time with my extended family.  It was chilly, but E liked sleeping in her tent.  There was a lot of playing in the dirt and roasting marshmallows, which is what camping should be, right?

Moms Favorite
While camping we took some pictures.  Here is my favorite one!
