Tot School ~ Letter U

~ Ladybug is 41 Months Old ~Tot-School

Animal ABC Button

Totally forgot to take a picture of her desk for letter U, it wasn’t too fancy since I don’t have any umbrella birds around.

I made Ladybug another letter bin, this time adding our letter U stuff into a basket.  She wanted to keep her letter T stuff too, so it stayed in a bin too.  She loved digging through the basket with me!Tot School Letter U-1540

She found all of the little puzzles to do, and laid it all out on the floor as she admired it.  After it was all out, I arranged it and snapped a pic so you could see what was in it!  Alphabet Soup set, ABC peg set, Magnetic Letters, Ladybug Alphabet Puzzle, and more!Tot School Letter U-1547

I drew a big U on our easel and she wanted to draw stripes all over it!Tot School Letter U-1549


The printable items shown below 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 U is not free yet, but it will be once it is posted on Totally Tots!}.

One night after dinner, she asked to do her school work and proceeded to work through all of her pages!Tot School Letter U-1565

No, she didn’t have gymnastics this day, but YES, she did wear her leotard all day long because she wuvs it.Tot School Letter U-1566

Then asked me to cut them out so we could hide them and find them together.  After that I had her jump to the color I yelled out, she loved this!Tot School Letter U-1642

She asked to have her picture taken with her first creation…Tot School Letter U-1606

She made all of these and would have kept going if it wasn’t nap time!Tot School Letter U-1615

We finger painted a lot.  I used masking tape to make her name and then she painted over it.  The reveal when I pulled off the tape was awesome, she loved it!Tot School Letter U-1586

We played Pengoloo and Gobblet Gobblers several times.  These are two of my favorite preschool games, and the older boys still love them too!Tot School Letter U-1610

Krash is using the Draw, Write, Now books for his 1st grade and one day Ladybug asked if she could draw too, like Krash.  Of course, I said yes!  She chose a swan…Tot School Letter U-1621

I was pretty impressed!  She worked really hard on her red swan!Tot School Letter U-1622
