Here is what we did this week in tot school. You can see more of what we did this week by checking out A Mommy Talks with Madonna, and hopping over to 2 Teaching Mommies to download all of the lesson plans and printables for FREE!
We worked on some beginning spelling this week with this Look, See, Spell chart. We used our Scrabble tiles, and E was supposed to look at the picture, see the word, and then spell the word with the tiles.
E needed some encouragement with this, but she grasped the concept. It took a while longer than some other activities, but I am ok with that. She’s learning, and that’s a good thing.
Like Madonna and Lil’ Man, we worked on this color and count with faces.
We also worked on these Shape Faces. E loved this game. We broke out the shape faces and the flip cards a couple of times this week. The purpose is you flip a card and match the shapes on the card to make a face.
Social Studies Concepts:
We looked through magazines to find pictures of the emotions we were working with. We then glued them on construction paper to make a feelings book.
We also made some paper plate faces with the shapes from our math game. We used these and sang some songs with them, like If Your Happy and You Know It and the girl scout standard There’s a Smile in my Pocket (which I had never heard of, but threw in for Madonna!)
This week we also played a couple of games. I am trying to work in some physical activity with our lessons. We used feeling words on the steps and went up and down to spell them. Happy went up the stairs, and Sad and Mad went down. :)
That was our week. Be sure and check out what others did at 1+1+1=1.
