My tots are 30 months and 5 years old.
We jumped back into letters with Qq this week. This will be the last time Prince Charming joins us for our morning totschool session as he will start a special school on Monday to help him with his social anxiety. It is only 2.5 hours a day so 2 or three days a week, I will still be providing him with his activity trays. He really likes them and the school focuses mostly on behaviours, social interaction and literacy so he’ll need some work with numbers and other things at home.
On Monday, we used dobbers and markers to work on the totschool printables for the letter Qq from 1+1+1=1. We haven’t done them in a while and I forgot just how much Monkey Girl enjoys them. They are a bit young for Prince Charming but he likes doing whatever Monkey Girl does.
On Tuesday, Monkey Girl and I worked on one of her tot trays – clipping clothes pins numbered from 1 to 10 on a piece of cardboard, also numbered from 1 to 6. She really did well with this. We spent the rest of the morning reading books… many, many, many books!
Once we finished colouring the Queens, we played a memory game. I would line up 3 different coulored Queens in front of Monkey Girl ( 5 for Prince Charming), name them and cover one up while she closed her eyes. She then needed to guess which one was hiding. A big hit as hide and seek is the game of the moment around here.
Thursday was a busy day so we didn’t get to much learning time. We did make some allowance jars for Monkey Girl and Prince Charming and talked about the names of different coins – with special attention given to “Qq is for quarters.” I also showed Prince Charming how many pennies were in a nickel, dime, quarter, loonie and toonie. He was pretty amazed that he had more money than Monkey Girl with just one toonie than when she had fifty pennies.
Monkey Girl finished the rest of her printables. She especially liked circling her vocabulary words instead of colouring them this week. She had seen Electric Lady do it in her homework last week and was fascinated!
And that would be it for this week! Next week is Rr is for rainforest and I am very much looking forward to that one!
