Tot School ~ CHRISTmas Fun!

Learning Toys/Trays

It was a pretty normal week around our house, Krash had fun with a variety of toys! He did ALL of these shape puzzles, front and back of each! They are WAY too easy for him now, but he is still working on identifying certain shapes consistently.IMG_6709
He drew on his chalkboard, this was the first time I helped him trace a letter (v)…IMG_6775
He is finally able to stack his nesting blocks in size order with minimal help….IMG_6768
Always a favorite…the peg board set… IMG_6770
He saw these puzzles up on a shelf and asked to get them down, he proceeded to do all 4 puzzles, then asked me to read Wheels on the Bus when he did the bus puzzle! IMG_6673

Theme ~ CHRISTmas
We had fun reading Christmas books to go along with various printables from our Christmas Tot Pack. We read One Shining Star MANY times as we practiced courting the stockings 1-10…IMG_6663
He enjoyed reading Jesus, Me, and My Christmas Tree to himself first, and then had me read it to him before we sorted our trees into cups…IMG_6719 He liked making the little trees slide down the “mommy” trees into the cups…IMG_6722
I put magnets on the back of our ornament ABCs and he helped me put them in order on the dishwasher. He has since went back to them many times and is really getting good at pointing to the actual letter he is saying while singing the ABC song!IMG_6705I put our Veggie Tales Nativity on his shelf and he was so excited and has played with it almost every day! He has also LOVED our book, The Stable That Bob Built and talks about the play set while we read the book!IMG_6668

We got 2 letters in this week! We started with Uu for umbrella… IMG_6714IMG_6716IMG_6717
Vv was next, I snapped a photo of our table top pocket chart which I am now using to display everything I can find for our current letter. He always has fun just looking through the items. Sometimes we play with them, sometimes he’s not interested…I put them up just in case!IMG_6766
He is really enjoying the new dot-paint sheets I am giving him now, I got U and V from Making Learning Fun.IMG_6788 IMG_6792
He wasn’t so into the volcano painting, so I had to finish the middle for him! IMG_6794

iTouch Learning Fun
Krash continue to enjoy my iTouch, Preschool Adventure is another favorite of his. He specifically likes the matching part of this game. He rolls the top, middle and bottom of a character to get them all matched up. When they are correct the character will animate…he loves it! This app also has other preschool skills for your tot! Find this and our other favorite Tot apps here!

Life {FUN} School
Krash learned how cold snow really is! He went out on the deck and wanted back inside within minutes, telling us the snow wasn’t “big enough”…meaning it had not accumulated!! He was NOT interested in being wet and cold without some white stuff to actually play in!IMG_6839
Thankfully I snapped quickly while he was taking it all in within those few minutes!IMG_6837IMG_6840

Mommy’s Favorite
No words are necessary. I am sure every mom out there will understand why this is my favorite shot of my 3 year old boy ;-).
