Tot School

This week we did a few more activities than last and are just about back to "normal" with our Tot School activities. This week we focused on the letter "K" and the color "blue".

Jillian colored her letter K-k template with blue crayons.

I made some small matching cards for Jillian with things starting with "K". These were her favorites this week, and while we didn't turn them over and play an actual matching game, she had fun putting the same images next to one another.

We collected blue things from her play area and put them in a blue bin. She was really not into this, but I like the idea and may keep trying with her.

Jillian got to do some painting earlier this week at our moms group get together.

We checked out some great "K" books from the library this week, too:

I Love You, Blue Kangaroo by Emma Chichester Clark

Kangaroos Have Joeys by Phillipa-Alys Browne

What Do You Do With a Kangaroo? by Mercer Mayer

What Shall We Do, Blue Kangaroo? by Emma Chichester Clark

Then it was time to celebrate Jillian's 2nd birthday! Not thinking about the letter "k" connection at all, we got Jillian a play kitchen. She has really enjoyed playing with it!

And we finally got some decent weather this week, so we met up with some friends at a playground and Jillian got some good outdoor time, too!

Our cold winter weather disappeared this week too! We actually got into the high 50s. It doesn't happen very often, so you have to take advantage of it while you can!

My son currently is into matching cards too!

What a great week and happy 2nd birthday Jillian!! We got Maddie a play kitchen for Christmas last year and she seems to love it more and more everyday (in fact, right now, she's making "spicy hot dog soup" apparently. Ha!

She is too cute! What a great smile and I love the first couple photos of her concentrating. I like your lessons this week, they really seem like a great way to make learning fun.
