We had a pretty exciting tot school week. Much of it ended up being more of a life school and not photographed. But we did get a few tray activities in, and some other fun play! I’m switching up our method of doing letters and starting with themes. We’re starting this week with H and the theme Human body. I’m pretty excited about it!!
I got these Halloween erasers at CVS. I intended for this to be a pattern exercise, but Baloo is really not into patterns. So instead he sorted them, and stacked them. At one point he made a tower with all of them.
This was a spooning activity. I have no clue what this game is called. I got a really good deal on it and thought it would make for a great tot tray activity. I tried to get him to play a few racing games, counting games, and stuff like that. Again, he wasn’t so into it and this activity just lasted a little while.
We’re started doing more puzzles with interlocking pieces. Baloo loves them, but he always wants my help. He says they are “too difficult” for him. So I’ve tried to teach him steps for completing a puzzle. The first is to separate the sides from the middle pieces. So here he is pointing out the straight side.
Another sorting game. These are little colorful army men. We got them at dollar tree a few weeks ago. So the object was to use the tongs to put the men into the matching bowls. He refused to use the tongs, but he did sort them!
And I finally saved enough caps to make some Bottle Cap Name Games!! We did Baloo’s name and Daddy!!
Our tot boxes this week!! We had legos and cars, which ended up being used together. We made a garage with the legos and the cars were parking in and around the garage.
This toy we got at a garage sale a few weeks ago. It’s a really awesome little toy! There are 36 magnets, one for each letter and then the numbers 0-9. The letters all have cards that go with them.
I guess the toy is no longer made, but there are still a few on amazon. Honestly though, I would not pay $80 for this toy. It’s cool…but not that cool. We got it for $3 and I think it was worth it.
Our fourth and final tot box this week was play tools. Baloo played with the tools ALL week. I don’t know how I failed to get a picture of him playing with his tools because he just toted them around wherever he went. I’m pretty sure that he fixed everything in the house!
And again, some uncategorized activities!
Music time!! We managed to get a bit of music time in this week…and even little Royal joined in on the fun!
And a bit of dramatic play! We got this robot costume at dollar tree! I want to have a small collection of outfits and costumes, so every time we go to dollar tree I’ve been picking up a new one. We got a pirate set last time, and this week was robot!! I tried to teach Baloo to do the robot dance.
That’s it for this week! To see what others did this week check out 1+1+1=1!
