Tot School!

I've been totally inspired by some of these Tot School and homeschooling blogs I follow, and decided to finally try a little Tot School for Jillian. I feel like it will help me focus on some specific learning activities on the days that we're home and lend us a little bit more structure. I'm aiming for a letter of the alphabet theme each week. Thus we started with "A" this week.

We went apple picking. Jillian has decided that she loves apples and asks for them daily now! So naturally our snacks this week were apples. I made guacamole to go with enchiladas one night, and Jillian got to try another "a" food - avocados!

We spent some craft time coloring the letter "A" (template from DLTK).

We hung out with our moms group at a farm and learned about all kinds of animals.

We watched "An American Tale" that we checked out of the library.

We inherited from a friend of the family an awesome set of Sesame Street ABC board books, each focusing on a letter of the alphabet. We read the letter "A" book. We read about Noah and his ark. And we read a story about an alligator from our ABC book!
