Alex is almost 4 (46 months) and Max is 26 months
This is actually last week’s post, one week late. We didn’t do tot school this week; we were taking a week off and just enjoying ourselves – playing games, playing outside, reading lots of books, going to the library, just “being”.
Yes, Alex wore a firefighter hat and duck slippers to do autumn-themed printables. Oh, to be three! ;)
I know it’s hard to tell what this is, but this is the directional words mini book. You cut out apples, read the page, and glue the apple into the correct place on the page. Alex really enjoyed this activity! After we glued all the apples, we went through the book with a red bingo dauber. Alex stamped the word “is” (this week’s sight word) on every page.
Max had fun sorting these foam blocks from Target’s dollar section on our color sorting mat. He just adores building towers out of anything we have on hand!
Alex & Max both matched the cards.
Alex was all excited when he saw this counting game set out for him…until he realized that you can’t SPIN it. After that, he didn’t care at all. If we did it again, I’d probably add a spinner and have him clip the correct number on the spot when he spins it.
Doing the 10 part puzzle…and proud to finish it correctly!
Alex is starting to cut on the lines…finally!
(He’d still rather cut a paper into confetti, but at least he’s trying.)
This week’s RRSP mini book…Alex is going through the book and circling the sight word “is” on every page.
A few weeks ago, we spent the day at a friend’s house. The children played while the mommies made busy bags. Both boys were excited to try the button snake that my friend Lori made for them.
I reintroduced bingo daubers (dot markers) a few weeks back, and both boys are in LOVE! Max also used candy heart erasers (?!) to cover the holes on the pumpkin page.
Here’s a little view UNDER the table as Alex is working…
If you’re happy and you know it, your face will surely show it!
(Max’s favorite tot school song…there’s a happy face on that popsicle stick)
Cutting, sorting, and gluing apples and leaves…
love the look of concentration on that little face!
I love those wobbly little letters on the middle page…I might just be a little sad when he’s better at writing his name. It’s just too cute right now!
