TOT SCHOOL WEEK SIX- 30 MONTHS

We started our week with Music Class...usually labeled Musical Mondays... participated in stART... did "D" for our letter of the week...and ended it with Dance.

Recently I won a giveaway from The Adventures of Bear...a Boca Beth CD (My first songs in Spanish)...which I used during our Music Class this week. The kids had a great time listening to the music and dancing. Thank You The Adventures of Bear and Boca Beth :)

Some scenes from our music class this week (pounding on the drum and dancing to the Boca Beth CD while playing the egg shakers):


Ryleigh working on a winnie the pooh puzzle (from the $1 store)

Back by popular demand, we made pumpkin muffins again :) This time I had three "students"...it ran pretty smoothly and I would totally do it again...the girls got to practice their stirring, spooning, transferring, & pouring techniques...


Enjoying the muffins.....

Here Ryleigh, Emily and E are doing Cheerio Towers (which I first saw on The Adventures of Bear). When they got the cheerios all the way to the top, they ate them off... this activity is great because it is so simple, yet there are so many variations that you can do. I used a ball of play-dough, stuck it on a plate, put a piece of linguine in the middle and cheerios surrounding the entire "structure" on the plate.


Here Ryleigh and T are working on their stART project....

The Letter of the week this week was "D" (is for Dog). I had the girls glue googly eyes and construction paper cutouts for the nose and tongue. For the ears we used their hand-prints.


Here the girls are practicing their shapes and colors. I printed out and laminated some of the activities from the Ratatouille Tot Book from 1+1+1=1.


One of Ryleigh's favorites is the straw in the cheese container activity.... :)

Braeden doing some tummy time- watching his reflection in the mirror and waiting for Ryleigh to be done with school to come play...which she promptly did...and got under there with him...
