My tot is 29 months old. Our new little buddy is 5.
We had a different little boy here this week for totschool – Another 5 year old and we’ll have him for quite some time. I am not sure how long yet so he’s just joining us for totschool but we may branch out to some preschool stuff in the future. Here on the blog he’ll be known as Prince Charming.
On Tuesday Monkey Girl and I went shopping. I bought some snowflake window clings while we were out and Monkey Girl very much enjoyed decorating the windows with them. She also played with one of our Nativity scenes.
Since Prince Charming didn’t have a stocking yet, and I messed up the writing on Monkey Girl’s, I had them paint Christmas stockings for craft time. We had a lot of fun with it – lot’s of giggles as they experimented with different colour mixtures.
The kids chose our playdough pizza kit from the tot shelves to play with. I am so impressed at Momkey Girl’s ability to share. I very much expected her, as the baby of the family and the only one with me during the daytime, to be jealous of another child joining our time and playing with her toys. Instead, she shares willingly and is so patient as she waits for Momma’s attention.
I made the kids pictures of Owls to colour, as well as a few other Oo sheets. Our printer ran out of toner! I am glad I am decent at drawing as they were requesting “Pin-bulls” as Monkey Girl calls them.
I made some more letter pages for them to dob and colour. The kids finished off their morning with our pattern block set. They ae way too easy for Prince Charming, and getting that way for Monkey Girl but they still spent nearly 40 minutes on them!
There you have it – our week with the letter Oo. If you’d like to see what others are doing, click the totschool button at the top!
