Preschool-Tot School March 25-31

This week we have just spent a lot of time playing with all of our new birthday goodies. We have also been working on thank you notes for all our new toys. B just stamped his name with alphabet stamps and C is actually writing a little note inside each card. It is taking a while to get them done but he has been working hard on them. We have also been talking a lot about Easter and reading many Bible stories about Easter and the Resurrection. We will be doing a lot more of this in the next two weeks.

Birthday wrap up- Curious George Party

Brownies for B to share at preschool.

Goodie bags for his Little Gym Party

George Lolli-pops I made for the goodie bags Cars Party-

Party favors for C's Chuck E Cheese Party.

It looks like they are empty but they do have goodies in them.

Brownies for C's preschool class

Thank you cards-

For B's cards we put a sticker like the ones on the goodie bags on the front then he stamped his name on the inside and then I wrote the little message and he drew some little people.
C wrote thank you on the front of his cards and then wrote a little message inside. After that he signed his name and stamped some Cars on it too. C got a neat little drawing desk. He can insert a disk into the top of it and then an outline of a picture shines on his paper for him to trace and then he can color it. He has had a ton of fun with this. The pictures are all characters from Toy Story. We began talking about Easter this week and each boy made a cross to hang in the window. They are so pretty and springy looking. We will be doing mostly Easter activities for the next two weeks.
Check back over the next two weeks as we show you all of our Easter fun.

Preschool-TOT-school Feb. 26- March 17

The last several week have been a bit of a blur. I worked so hard getting things ready before my arm surgery and then I had my surgery and I have been somewhat out of commission since. Hopefully this will be my last surgery and I will regain some rotation in my wrist. We have managed to fit in some school activities,Celebrate Dr. Seuss, my dad's 80th birthday and a little Leprechaun fun.


We talked about the old saying March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. C. really understood what this means. We have been graphing our lion and lamb days and so far this March has come in like a lamb--let's just hope it goes out like a lamb too. We made this cute dandy"lions".

Dr. Seuss

We celebrate Dr. Suess day with Read Across America on March 2nd. We read a ton of Dr. Seuss books that week and did ssveral activities to go along with some of the books.
We sorted and graphed gold fish after reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
We did another graphing activity after reading Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? We rolled the dice and read the sound and then matched it to the picture on the graph. The boys loved this activity and C really got into reading the words. We got this activity from 2 teaching mommies. Get it here. We also measure things with our feet after reading The Foot Book and of course we ate green eggs and ham.

Marbel Painting Shamrocks

Lucky the Leprechaun

Lucky the Leprechaun visited us but the first time he came we were still in bed. He left us a note on tthe chalk board and some shamrock tattoos and a shamrock necklace on the table. Then while we were at school he came back and we missed him again. This time he left us some lilli-pop cookies, and a lprerechaun and bendable shamrock men. He left us a note saying he had to go home but maybe we would see him next year. The boys had a blast with this. Charlie went into preschool telling everyone about Lucky.

Happy Birthday Papaw!!
We also celebrated my dad's (AKA Papaw) 80th birthday. He has a St. Patty's birthday so we surprised him the Saturday before with a party. I think he had a lot of fun. Happy Birthday Papaw!!

Next week is our BIIG birthday week!! Both boys will have Birthdays by the 28th so we have a family party planned on the 27th and two individual parties planned this week to. I will post pictures after all of the festivities are over!!
