Tot School-Space


TotSchool2Elisabeth is 36 Months 

This week in tot school we went to the final frontier!  Here is some of what we did this week, and you can see more with Madonna over at A Mommy Talks

Language Arts:
Ok, so this week in language arts we worked on some pre-writing and beginning letter sounds this week.  For prewriting we connected dots by following the letters of the alphabet.  The goal was to make the big dipper, but E didn’t make STRAIGHT lines from letter to letter.  She went in a bit of a circle.  :)


We also completed a M for Moon Dot Page to work on letter sounds.  No pics though!

We sequenced planets based on size for one activity this week.


We also counted craters on the moon with our moon clip cards.


We made a model of our solar system using our planets.  I printed out a guide and E matched the next planet in line and glued in on.  She won’t remember all the planets from this activity, but she does remember Jupiter.  She is quick to point out that Jupiter is “SUPER BIG!”


We also had the chance to visit the planetarium this week.  My brother Chip is an Astrophysicist (yes, seriously).  He is currently student teaching and he works part-time at his universities planetarium.  He pulled some strings and Madonna, Myself, and the kiddos were all treated to a private show!  Thanks Chip! 


This week was E’s 3rd birthday!  I cannot believe how quick three years goes by!

We had a snowman theme, and I made this cookie cake, which I thought came out rather spectacular!  


This picture was after the candles and the cutting of the cake.  I realized too late that I hadn’t got pics of it!

That was our week!  Be sure and check out the lesson plans and printables which are FREE over at 2 Teaching Mommies
