Tot School ~ Letter O

~Ladybug is currently 38 months old~Tot School

Animal ABC

I have been forgetting to take pictures of her desk set-up, but I remembered this week!  I added some letter fun also, featuring the letter O using our Letter Construction set, our alphabet peg set, our foam floor puzzle alphabet, and letter bean bags.  She loved this!

The printable items are all available here on the Animal ABCs webpage. {files are released for free when they are posted on the Totally Tots blog for the ABC feature, letter O is not free yet, but it will be once it is posted on Totally Tots!}.

Letter O Week

Here are some Letter O and Octopus ideas for you…


She did tons of her octopus stuff, I only have 1 picture to show for it!  Here she is coloring…

Octonauts Tot Pack

O week seemed perfect for an Octonauts theme!

I put magnets on the back of the heads and tails matching and had them with our cookie sheet, she loved this!Octonauts Matching

3 part cards in the mini pocket chart, she did this several times, minus the word matching-I helped or she ignored it for the most part!Octonauts Matching

Octonauts graphing with dot paint!Octonauts Graphing

I cut, she chose, glued and counted!

She wanted to color the insides of the O’s on her maze!Octonauts Letter Maze


I brought out our ocean sensory bin for the week, she loved it!  We haven’t had sensory bins as much, so they are special when they appear!Ocean Sensory Bin

We have a herd of caterpillars around here, collected by my sons from the backyard.  Pac is keeping his stash in our butterfly house, and they are doing well.  Ladybug has her own set in a glass jar and carries the poor things around with her everywhere!  Here, she was observing one of them as it played outside of it’s cage.

Only one photo of my bug and her iPad this week, from Instagram, as she was doing her 3 letters before bed.  She will ask if she can do just 3 letters before we read books!Letter School App
