Tot School

Tot School

Izzie is 38 months old.

We had a great Tot School week. The shelf included a few new activities mixed in with some old favorite activities.

New activities included:

Izzie rolled the die and counted the correct number of pumpkins to put in the super cute pumpkin muffin pan. This is great for counting practice. (Pumpkin muffin pan and pumpkin erasers from Target and purple die from Dollar Tree)

More counting practice...I bought these paper pumpkins at the Dollar Tree, added a numeral with corresponding number of stickers, then cut in half to make a matching puzzle game.

Izzie is still working hard on mastering the tweezers. She was encouraged to use the tweezers to transfer the pumpkin erasers into the pumpkin ice cube tray. (Ice cube tray from Dollar Tree and plastic green tweezers from Michael's)

Izzie enjoyed matching up opposite pairs with this great game from Discovery Toys. It's a fun way to work on her speech therapy too.

Old shelf favorites this week included:

Matching capital and lowercase letters. To see original post with alphabet flashcards, click here.

Izzie also has a fun time working on copying patterns. This is her favorite one that I've made, probably because she gets to stack the apples on top of a picture of herself. To see original post with templates, click here.

She has a little more trouble copying these pictures, but still enjoys trying. Click here to see original post with more details and pictures.

This week, we also participated in Tree Hugging Tots and Open Ended Art.

The theme was moon for Tree Hugging Tots. Izzie created a full moon.

Henri Matisse was the showcase artist this week for Open Ended Art. Izzie worked very hard on her Matisse inspired fall collage.

  1. It looks like you had a really great week :)

  2. Very nice activities! In which section of Michaels did you find the tweezers?

  3. Denise,

    I found the tweezers a few months ago at Michael's in the $1.00 area. Two tweezers in a pack for $1.

  4. What a great week, I love the counting puzzles!

  5. I bought my opposite cards at a teacher store. They are made by Trend and are called "Opposites Match Me Cards".

  6. Great activities. I really like the patterning. I am probably going to have to make one. I was working with my son on patterning this week and it just did not seem to get it.
