TOT SCHOOL WEEK EIGHT- 30 MONTHS

Tot School

This week was super busy between Music Class, Tot School, Dance and.....starting to get the basement ready for our new classroom!!!! We are moving Music Class and Tot School downstairs hopefully by the beginning of December....with a completion date of January 1...as far as painting and everything else....so excited...this means a lot more room for the kids...the living room is getting kinda cramped for Music...

For Music this week, the kids started working on chords for the handbells. (Which also helps with color recognition). After passing out the handbells and doing our regular exercises with them, I then held up a card and if they had the color they rang it....we will work on it again :)
Ryleigh (and friends) working on Pom Pom transfers... I need to get smaller pom poms... they are transferring onto the suction cup side of fish...that I think go in the tub... from the $1 store...thank you Michelle...
Working on the stART project...to see the completed project go HERE.
This week, the Letter of the Week was E. I had the girls incorporate an Envelope into the letter E. Then we had them put Ee's inside.

Braeden with Juliette....just chillin....waiting for the girls to finish the projects...hoping not to be trampled when they do....
My grandmother usually comes over once a week...which is a huge help for me...this week she brought Ryleigh magnetic wooden letters that connect and make a train...out of her name...Ryleigh LOVES them!!!! She plays with them all the time and I highly recommend getting them if you need a gift for a little one!

To continue with our E letter...and to practice a fine motor skill...Ryleigh glued beans in the shape of an E...she really liked this activity...

Working on her colors from our activity pack from last week
We made some holiday presents....that I will NOT be posting on here... but afterwards...since her hands were already messy...Ryleigh really wanted to paint...
You know Elmo had to make an appearance...here Ryleigh is showing a dressed up Elmo how to string pasta onto a pipe cleaner....this activity has gotten way too easy for her so I switched her to string...apparently Elmo likes the pipe cleaner better...FYI...
Braeden...watching Ryleigh...and Elmo...
Marc...drinking coffee...carrying around one of Ryleigh's babies...who looks a lot like curious george...never a dull moment in this house...
Marc working with Ryleigh over breakfast on letters and names.... made out of beans...

Wow - you had a busy week. It's neat that you do activities together with other moms - it's almost like co-op preschool. The picture of her husband with a stuffed animal really made me giggle.

Love all of the projects you worked on! I like bean E. Sammy loves to glue things I need to get some beans for him. Thanks for stopping by my blog :-)
