TOT-School Week 11

Tot School

B is 19 months old

We finally got back into the school groove this week after a couple of off weeks. This week we did a little work with the letter Ss and just getting B to say new words. He has been a little slow to talk. Our Bible Story this week was Ruth and Naomi. We also spent a lot of time reading several Corduroy Board Books.

B turned the number 8 into a spider. We added 8 1/2 pipe cleaners for legs and wiggle eyes for the eyes and then he decorated it with sequins.

B put foil star stickers on an upper case and a lower case Ss.

B turned an S into a snake and decorated it with glitter foam shapes. We talked a lot about the colors and shapes of the foam pieces.

B laced a leaf. He really did a good job holding it by himself and lacing it.

We made squirrel headbands and we put coffee grounds on the tail to make it look fluffy!

He also played a lot with his telephone. He loves pushing the buttons!

B worked with his shape sorter.

B made a squirrel by painting glue on a squirrel shape and then covering it with coffee gounds. He loved the feel of the grounds. Then he added a wiggle eye.

B spent a lot of time playing with his Fisher Price Farm. He loves to make the animal sounds.

B made a spider web using a black paper plate and white yarn. He weaved the yarn around the paper plate that I had cut slits in. Then he took foam spiders and added them to the web. S for spide.

B made a fall tree. We painted his hand and arm for the tree trunk and branches and then he make fingerprints for the leaves in red, orange, and yellow.
