Tot School ~ Letter Q

~Ladybug is currently 38.5 months old~Tot School


Here is her desk set-up for letter Q.  I added some letter fun, featuring the letter Q using our Letter Construction set, our alphabet peg set, and Letter Q soup canTot School Letter Q -8439

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 Q is not free yet, but it will be once it is posted on Totally Tots!}.

This week we colored quails together {she wanted them all pink} and then cut them up to play hide and seek!Tot School Letter Q -8400

First, I hid them, and she went around finding them and yelling out the colors!  Then she hid them for me!Tot School Letter Q -8403

Here she is working on Letter Qq Dot Fun, we used our magnetic pom poms and our cookie sheet.  I used our wooden letters to hold the page in place.  This set is included in the Animal ABC Bundle, or you can purchase the set as a stand alone set for $1.25 on Teacher’s Notebook.Tot School Letter Q -8332

Special Note: Please read my post about Following the Child’s Lead if you have a tot and need info about this.  All tots are different and what Ladybug is doing may not be appropriate for your child, even if s/he is the same age!


We recently got this Alphabet Soup set and I LOVE it!  I am planning to pull the cans down one at a time as we work through letters this time, and then again when she does RRSP.  As she advances, we will use them for sound sorting!Tot School Letter Q -8327

We are loving our Candy Construction set, which is a review item from Learning Resources!  Stay tuned for a giveaway coming very soon!

We got out our Letter Construction Kit and made people and butterflies…Tot School Letter Q -8419

Then we made shapes and lined them up.  I yelled them out as she jumped through each one.Tot School Letter Q -8425

Then, she was the yeller for Krash!Tot School Letter Q -8429


Fireworks on the roof was a first for Ladybug and oh did she LOVE IT!  She smiled and clapped a lot!!!IMG_8346


Hanging-ith-the-big-Kids4World geography is kicking back into gear around here! We are focusing on Europe right now, since the Olympics are in London.  I have much more to share about our world geography plans, stay tuned! 

Ladybug isn’t actually a main part in the geography plan, but she is actually the most interested!  She does this Europe puzzle {got ours in a set at a discount store, the price is HIGH online} at least 2-3 times per day.Tot School Letter Q -8320

We have a big floor map, and I had just the Europe section out for the boys, but she begged for the whole thing.  So, I said yes, of course! She was jumping with joy when we finished it!Tot School Letter Q -8412
