Tot School Printables V is for Volcano

You can find the printables for this unit here on the Tot School Printables webpage.

You will see below that she went on a Tot School blitz and wanted to do almost all of her activities in one sitting!  We kept going until she said all done.  A few of them we did again throughout the week too.

Writing letter Vv, which she insisted was a W, now she knows the difference!IMG_6632


Dot painting her letters,IMG_6641

Tracing in the dry erase center, she did this MANY times!IMG_6644

We worked on naming landforms and surprisingly, she loved this!IMG_6604

At a different time, she decided to write “letters” on them by herself.  Earlier one of the activities we did with them was to say the name ‘”waterfall” and I would write the beginning sound on the board on top of the image to emphasize the sound.  She must have liked this because she did it on her own later!IMG_6649

Numbers on the cookie sheet with magnetic pom poms…IMG_6671

Numbers again, this time writing them as we count…loving our new click Expo markers{which also work beautifully on the dry erase center}IMG_6859

She had non-themed shelves this week, filled with fun learning toys.  I forgot to take a photo of the shelf set up and didn’t get many action shots of her playing!  Here’s what I did capture…

My girl is having a bit of iPad withdrawal.  She recently dropped it and the screen cracked and spider webbed across.  Boo.  BUT, I bought an awesome warranty from Square Trade and they are fixing it!  I plan to review the process after it is complete, I am actually a bit excited to be able to review their service!  I know how hard it is for people to find good warranties, and although I’d rather not have to use mine, I would love to let you know what I think now that I have to!

Here’s the last iPad shot I have, of her playing Tickle TapIMG_6471

I am currently pinning new iPad case options more appropriate to protect it from children, since they use it WAY more than I originally planned.  You can see the ones I am checking out here!  f you have one you love and it can withstand drops, leave me a comment!

Meanwhile, technology is all around us, here she was watching Speekee Spanish ~ which she still loves and asks for often.IMG_6472

We did some of our PowerPoint shows together and I taught her how to click the spacebar to advance the slides.  Here she as watching the Colors show.IMG_6479

She thought she was big stuff.IMG_6484


I totally forgot to share her Halloween costume, she was a girly pirate, to match Krash!  We went to our local children’s museum to play and trick or treat a little bit!

Tot School Blog Roll 2011-2012

We are hosting the Tot School Blog Roll here instead of on my website to make it easier for you to add and not have to wait on me! 


In order for this to work, I need you all to be sure to do the following things BEFORE adding your link below…

  1. Make sure you have linked up to the Tot School Linky at least 3 times within the past 3 months.  Within each of those posts and any other posts you link up you should have a link back to Tot School, either in the form of a button or a text link click back .
  2. You need to have your Tot School posts sorted under a label.  You will link up your Tot School posts only, by obtaining your label from your site and putting that link in this list. Not sure how to label posts?  Here’s directions for Blogger, which is what I use.  If you use another platform you’ll have to figure this out on your own!  To get the link for the label, just click on it from your own blog and then copy and paste that link into the linky below.  Example, here’s my link: Tot School, which looks like this:  I put this into my link below as the example.
  3. Choose the image you want in the image portion {you can use your blog button if you have one, or just a fun Tot School image}!
  4. For the link itself, please name your link the name of your blog and your tot’s age in month/year format.  Mine would say: 1+1+1=1 {4/09}  If you have more than 1 tot, just list their ages like that all in parenthesis.

If you make a mistake, please just email me with corrected info and the # you are on the linky and I will go in and edit it.  I will be removing any links below that don’t follow the above guidelines simply to make this more search friendly for other moms browsing around looking for other Tot School moms!

Last year we had much confusion about this so I wrote a detailed post explaining things, please read that here if you are still confused. This linky will be open until next fall, so you can add at any time.  Periodically I will be checking entries to be sure we have no spam, but if you notice any links not following the guidelines above PLEASE email me!!!  I want to keep this as easy to surf as possible to save you time!
