Tot School: Week 2

Tot School

Izzie is currently 36 months old.

We continued our On The Farm theme, completed Creation Days 3-7, and had a lot of fun this week.

Izzie received the LeapFrog Zippity Interactive Learning System for her birthday from her grandparents. We finally got it hooked up and I am disappointed. After seeing the box, we were all very excited, but the excitement quickly wore off. It's not very user friendly, games are not truly interactive, and it did not hold Izzie's attention. Looks like we'll be taking it back.

Izzie and Mac both enjoyed playing with the muscial eggs. Click here for more details.

Izzie is able to work this entire puzzle by herself...well, Mac helps too!

I found this great workbook at Walmart. Izzie has really enjoyed working with it independently. I took Shannon's advice at Growing and Learning By Leaps and Bounds and put each page in a sheet protector and let her use a washable marker...instant RESUABLE workbook!

Izzie working with her On The Farm Magnetic Play Set.

For open ended art this week, Izzie created farm animals with Play-doh.

Her newest favorite activity is working with the "How To Build An A" book, which was a birthday gift. This is a great pre-writing skill activity and Izzie really enjoys it!

I found this Heads and Tails activity at 1+1+1=1. I attached magnets to the back, which worked well with the white board.

Izzie played with the Counting Chicks game. For more details click here.

For our weekly stART project, we read Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm, created a Mrs. Wishy Washy paperplate, made and played in mud pudding, and enjoyed eating mud pudding with animals crackers. For more pictures and details of this activity, click here.

In addition, we completed Creation Days 3-7. Click here to see Izzie's acitivities for each day.

We had a great week finishing up our On The Farm activities!

  1. Such a great week! I've been hearing more and more about that book, How to Build an A, and I think I'll have to pick one up. Maddie's probably too young now, but it looks like Izzie really enjoys it!

  2. What cute ideas! And your girls are just adorable!

  3. You have so many great farm related toys and activities! I love that floor puzzle, do you remember where you found it? I actually just finished a post about putting pages in a binder and in sheet protectors (these are pages printed from online sites) for M to use with his window markers (they wipe off too) - the post is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Great minds... right? :) Thanks for all the very inspiring things you do - I love reading your posts!
