TOT SCHOOL - WEEK FIFTEEN 33 MONTHS

Tot School
This week we got back on schedule and we were very productive! We had Musical Monday, did a stART project, did "tot school", had a playdate and went to dance...it definitely felt good to get out of the house after being sequestered for 2 1/2 weeks! We did lots of writing practice and puzzles...but I didn't get pictures for most of them...I'm sure you can imagine what happened though :)

We always start our weeks with Music...and Ryleigh really likes Elmo to participate (or watch)... so here Elmo is...watching Music class...safely behind glass to keep lots of little fingers from touching him.... please ignore the pink dress....

This week the Letter of the Week was "J" is for Jellyfish... I had the girls paint with toilet paper rolls on the tops of the J and then glue ribbon on them... not my cutest idea ever.... but next week is a new week and we are on to "K"....

Here is Braeden..with his friend "A"...he very much enjoys her company...
Elmo has brought a friend...her name is funshine bear...to watch project time with Ryleigh...
My friend Dawn brought over some paint dot activity hearts. The paint dots are bingo markers from the dollartree. Ryleigh really liked this activity...so I guess we will have to go get our own "markers"...
Recently I won a pegboard and pegs from Shannon's blog. Ryleigh loves to play with it and there are so many fun things that can be done with it...from stacking to pattern work... thank you so much Shannon!!!
Ryleigh playing with her new pegboard.
So...we got the Melissa and Doug scissors...pretty much the best things that have ever been invented....I am only sorry that we did not get them sooner.... she was able to use them right away..they are easy to hold, open and operate....YAY!!!!!
Ryleigh using her new scissors...
We played Memory with I Spy cards...the matches were not identical..which I thought might be harder for her...but she really liked this game and we have played it over...and over...and over...(and over)...again...
One of Ryleigh's favorite activities is doing puzzles. Here are pictures of her doing her clock puzzle and a Melissa and Doug Puzzle. She pretty much does several puzzles a day...

I am glad that Ryleigh liked the pegs and pegboard! I am happy that you were able to use it.

Sweet Pea has a thing for Elmo too, so he participates a lot in our activities. :)

aww what a fun week! I love falling back into the routine! I hope that this week is a little more "normal" for us.

Michelle said...

I love that peg board set how cool that you won it!!

Braeden looks so cute with Anna, he is getting so big :0)

Can't wait to be back to normal once we are all better. We missed doing TOTSchool with you.

What fun!! That Elmo pic cracks me up! My son would LOVE that! Oh and that picture of Braeden with his friend is just sooo cute.

Cindy said...

What a great week. It is so good Ryleigh loves puzzle. They are great brain exercisers.

Michelle said...

That is great that she loves to do puzzles! We are working on that. =) Congrats on winning the peg board ~ that looks like a neat learning toy!

Susan said...

What a great idea to keep Elmo behind glass so he can participate, but not be available for touching. Curious George participated with us a-l-o-t this week.

Very nice assortment of activities! I love your blog - it's so inspiring!

Trudie said...

I love the Boikido range of toys! Looks like a great week, she is so cute!

Giggly Girls said...

Lots of fun!!! I'm glad that Elmo enjoyed school. Our Bitty Baby often joins us. LOL

The jelly fish came out so cute! I'll have to get some of those scissors. My tot wants to so badly but she's not even close. LOL

Dollar tree has Bingo markers??? I need to find some... I was just looking on Amazon for some cheap ones! The Do-A-Dot markers are so expensive!!!

Our Country Road said...

I had no idea that the Dollar tree had Bingo markers-and I am in there waaaay too much. Thank you for the tip! The clock puzzle looks so cute, and I love all the shots of Elmo :) I also love how you used your legal term to describe the last 2 1/2 weeks :)

That Elmo looks so funny behind the glass peeking out. We love Melissa and Doug too, I didn't know they made scissors. Looks like you had a fun week.

What a super-fun week! I love that you start it all off with music, that is so great. And Elmo in his pretty pink dress, watching from behind a glass door really cracked me up. :) I was glad to see he decided not to wear the pink dress when Funshine was visiting. ;) The pegs and pegboard are awesome and the I Spy matching game is great!
