Airplane Tot School

Alex is 4.5, Max is 2.5 year old.

We’ve been reusing some of our units this month.  I’ve let Alex choose which unit he’d like to do each week, and he has chosen some of his favorite themes. 

A few weeks ago, he chose Little Pilots.  This was a rather small unit, so I made some newer pages for the skills that Alex should be working on now.  I updated the pack on Teachers Notebook, so all of the new pages are available there now as a freebie

Max had fun with the shape matching page.  He really does these well – far better than I’d expect him to do!  He loves to match things!

Max really didn’t understand the count and color, but he enjoyed coloring it.

Alex usually does these pages quite well.  On this day, he did it correctly, but her REFUSED to color.  Instead, he did it rather sloppily with a black crayon.

The kids love the new handwriting pages!  Max just circles the A and a letters in the box, and then he scribbles on the handwriting portion of the page.

Alex can really do these pages VERY WELL if he applies himself.  Today, he really worked hard.  I think it’s because A is the first letter of his name, so he makes As quite often.  Whatever the case, both he & I were very proud of his work on this page!

Shape Matching
(We’ve FINALLY achieved lines that don’t go loop-de-loop around the whole page!)

If they cooperate and show kindness, Grace & Alex play the game of the week at the end of our lessons. They are both learning a lot about how to count & move your game piece!
