Tot School-Pumpkins


E is 33 months.

This week we learned all about PUMPKINS this week in tot school!  Here are some of the things we did this week, and you can see more with Madonna over at A Mommy Talks

Language Arts Concepts:
We worked on the letter P this week.  A couple of weeks ago we did the letter “P for pine tree” with our forest unit.  This week I decided we’d work on a lower case p with our pumpkins.  E INSISTED that we have a pink sky, and I didn’t fight her.  I pick my battles folks. :)  We also went a little crazy with some felt stickers I had, but the finished product was pretty darn cute!

We also worked on a color by letter that worked on the letter P.  We used a printable and a colored the lowercase P’s green and the capital P’s orange.  We distinguished the two because “little P’s” have a “stick out on top”.

We also read books.  Here are some favorites. 

Math Concepts:
We worked on this Pumpkin Flip and Cover Pumpkin patch.  We used our number cards and colored the number we counted.

We also tried a measuring activity where we used pumpkins to measure vines.  E lined the pumpkins up and counted how many there were.

Social Studies and Science Concepts:
We used this Fall Tot Book to talk about several things.  We put together a fall puzzle, matched leaves, and colored fall items.  In addition there were some counting and sorting activities in the book that we used.
