Tot School

We have not done a Tot School post in forever. We have been doing stuff but, I just never get around to this post. Anyway, here are some things we have been working on.

Johnsie is finally seeming a little interested in writing. I was getting worried since he is almost 4 and can only write a few letters. Now we seem to be off and running.

A Walmart buy. Color ink is so expensive and I always feel guilty when I use it. When I do print in color I ALWAYS use page protectors and have Johnsie use washable markers or I cover things in contact paper.

Same beginning sounds

What belongs?

Pre-writing


He is such a HUGE FAN of automoblox. We are for sure getting him more for his birthday.

He is forever creating.

This is all random stuff from our junk drawer. We 1st played an eye spy game and then using fewer items we played the game where you take an object away and you need to guess what's missing.

Like I posted earlier. We love the book How to Build an A.

We worked on learning how to make colors.


Masterpiece!

I LOVE this book. I have wanted to the playdoh activity that you see all the time with this book and we finally got around to it.

Yellow and Blue make Green.

We love this book too except the crying in the end. Did Johnsey ask you to separate the green into blue and yellow in the end? Anna did when we did similar activity. It's good to know that we can hope for more desire to write when we will be closer to 4.
