Preschool- TOT-School Week 4 January 16-22

Well last week I vowed to be organized this week. I actually was very organized this week but my "perfect plans" did not happen. We began our week with both boys sick and spending most of the day on the couch. It took them a couple of days to get to feeling better so we did get a few activities in but not everything that I had hoped.

This is how our week began!!! Poor sick boys :(

The Hat by Jan Brett

After reading the story The Hat each boy picked out his favorite character and then I printed it from the mask section at The boys then took their animal and our scrap box and created a hat for their animal. They really had a lot of fun with this project.

The Mitten by Jan Brett

After reading The Mitten the boys each laced a snow-white mitten and then colored pictures of the animals that tried to get in the mitten. C. used his mitten and animals to re-tell the story to me.

Disney Cars Math workbook

C. loves his Cars math book. Mainly just because it is Cars. He asks every day if he can "do math" in his book.


B. still loves, loves, loves his trains and plays with them daily. He loves to rearrange the track and he also likes to make bridges.
snowmen counting game

This game came from
here We played the game using M&Ms as markers. The boys loved it because they knew at the end they could eat their M&Ms. It is just a dice game where you roll the dice and then cover that many snowmen. I was surprosed that we actually played it 3 times before they broke down and had to eat the M&Ms.

Snowman Jumble

This game came from here
This was another great game that the boys loved and worked on toether. They had to match the clear stones that I had written the Upper case letters on to the lower case letters on the game board.

All in all it was a good week. We just did not get to everything I had planned but we will catch up next week. Hopefully this new week will bring fun with penguins, snowflakes, groundhogs and a little Valentines.


  1. What a fun week- I hope they are feeling better :-) We love Jan Brett over here... but have never read the Hat... we will have to get on that. Have a great week!!! :-) And thanks for stopping by my blog :-)

  2. What fun activities! I am so impressed that your kids do their schoolwork with m&m's and don't eat them before the lesson is over! Great work - hope the boys are feeling better.

  3. Hiya- great activities! Now following your blog and looking forward to reading your posts! My son loves his wooden train track too :-) x
