Tot School – 26 Months

K is for Kite and St. Patrick’s Day

What a week it’s been!  Busy, sick, trip to the dentist, spring fever…you name it!  I can’t say that Tot School was a top priority this week!

Here’s what we did manage to do:

We spent an early morning watching the cement trucks pouring the driveway and sidewalk at the new house across the street.  The most interesting part was DEFINITELY when the cement truck got stuck in the mud – tires spinning, mud flying, and another cement truck showing up to tow him out of the mud.

Alex took this picture once the truck was out of the mud.  Not bad for a 2 year old!March2010 150

This was K is for Kite week.  Don’t expect much, though – we didn’t accomplish much on our theme this week :(

St. Patrick’s Day Fun! 
This really was an exciting day for Alex!

We sorted M&Ms by color – and tried really hard not to eat them!

We matched Shamrock Letters (Help!  I can’t remember what website this is from – maybe Childcareland?!)

March2010 228 
We sorted shamrocks by size from Making Learning Fun.  (We skipped the medium ones, as Alex really doesn’t care too much for size-sorting.)

We enjoyed Shamrock Shakes

We decorated the baby to look like a leprechaun. 
No – wait – that’s just carrots ;)

We went on a treasure hunt for leprechaun gold…over and over and over again…

We read LOTS of books, including kite books, leprechaun books, and Gail Gibbons’ St Patricks Day book – which tells the TRUE story of St. Patrick’s missionary work

We took LOTS of walks & enjoyed the beautiful weather!

Great paper plate shamrocks! Looks like you still got a lot in this week. There is NO WAY we could have ever sorted M&M's and had any leftover - way to go!!!

Theresa said...

The paper plate shamrocks are great! I don't think the kite puzzle is a weak tie in....I would have done it myself =)
