My tot is 26 months old.
Okay… so corny rhyme for the title but that is what we’ve been doing the past two weeks.
Since Monkey Girl really didn’t do tot school all summer, I thought a review was in order before we really got down to business. Next week we start our first new letter with Hh.
Instea of looking around the internet and printing off letter sheets, I just made my own. Not as pretty as the internet versions, but tailored to my girl so they worked well (and saved me time!) We used crayons, markers, dobbers and chalk to learn about letters this week.
I know it’s posted above as a thumbnail with the rest… but I just had to repost this one… I was so impressed that Monkey girl traced this all on her own.
We also had some fun with puzzles…
Puzzle Books, Animal landscapes…
Birthday Candles and wooden dolls…
And Daddy’s Dice. We had a lot of fun with this – first sorting, next counting and last placing in nice neat lines.
We enjoyed art activities too! (Mostly colouring because that’s what this kid loves these days.)
We can’t forget outside. Monkey Girl just loves being out in the sunshine.
And last but not least – silly/fun stuff.
Sticking cheese slices to the wall (NOT encouraged by Momma… but I guess this is what I get for trying to cut corners, while sick, and giving processed cheese instead of the good stuff) and brushing the cat while sitting in a basket of laundry. I thought that one was just too cute!
And since we spent most of the last week with sore throats, coughs and bronchial infections… I thought I’d share a picture of our favourite comfort food – Ice cream bars which taste way better when sitting on Mama’s tummy.
