Tot School

~Krash is currently 45 months old~

Learning Toys

We have had this Diego 123 game for months and I kept forgetting to bring it out {I got it on MAJOR sale at Ross}.  It finally made it’s appearance and Krash loved it!  We didn’t play the real way yet, just worked on matching the numbers for now.IMG_1147 A little Aquadoodle scribbling.  He still loves his mat but rarely uses it for any actual writing!IMG_1154

We were sent this adorable Flip Along Fun book to review {our giveaway will be posted soon} and Krash loved it!  IMG_1080

 

Theme

We continued with our LOVE theme, and finished up a few of the other activities I had for Krash.  He loved the love-bug matchingIMG_1114

And was adorable counting and matching his hearts {this is from COAH-Erica}. IMG_1116 IMG_1118

 

Post SubTitles ABCWe did 2 letters this week and Krash really enjoyed them!  First for B we made a bee and read the book, Busy, Buzzy Bee, which he LOVED.  It was fun to explore a random topic, I love that about these projects-as they don’t fit in with our other ongoing themes but give him something random and fun in the middle of something else. I let him use a Sharpie to color on his bee {aren’t I brave?}

IMG_1104He was super proud of his bee!IMG_1108He asked to read the book over and over again for the next couple of days so we expanded on the “bee theme” a bit more.  Here he is drinking nectar from the “flower”.  We worked on colors and I had him buzz around and “sting” the correct color, or “drink nectar” from the correct color.  It was a fun way to get out energy and work on colors and listening skills. {the mats are from our Candy Land DVD Game…which we don’t play at all now but LOVE the mats for various activities}IMG_1140

We also made our C for crab and read A House for a Hermit Crab.  He enjoyed this too, and really enjoyed pinching people with the crab’s pinchers ;-)IMG_1173

 

Getting Ready

This week I added a few activities to our morning calendar routine.  I was inspired by an old blogging buddy, Jennefer from Smooth Stones Academy.  One thing we added was a USA map and a set of flashcards {I don’t have a photo of this}.  Each day one of the boys chooses a card and we color in that state.

The other thing I added is a set of time flashcards and a little mini clock.  Each day we will make the time together.  Pac Man already knows how to make and tell time fully, but this will be a fun way to expose Krash early.  He is very interested in time, so he really enjoyed this!IMG_1131

He is continuing to love his Kumon cutting workbook and is a super star cutter ;-).IMG_1164

 

Tiny Tot SchoolLadybug is not the most mobile child, to say the least.  She is just like PacMan, who didn’t crawl until 11 1/2 mos or walk until 16 1/2 mos.  We are working with her though and she is super funny when we walk with her!  She won’t move her feet at all and when we help her, she just giggles.IMG_1210She is finally figuring out that she can move.  I think she is just a few weeks form crawling, but we’ll see!  We put her toys out of reach and she is hilarious reaching for them!

Pac Man still loves to play with her, the ring stacker has been a fav this week.  He is trying to teach her how to put them on! IMG_1242She is VERY into books now and I am loving it.  I can give her a book and she will flip through the pages and really look at the pictures for awhile, it’s so cute!  Krash would never sit and listen to a book at this age, so I am enjoying our reading time together! She really loves this book {Tails} and loves all of her touchy-feely books.IMG_1160

 

 

 

Life School

We had a fun family night on Friday and had Family Game Olympics.  We chose many different games and made teams to compete for Gold and Silver medals.  Pac Man was my partner and K was with Daddy.  Here’s some shots from our fun night, which Krash LOVED!!!!IMG_1182

They won this round! IMG_1183 IMG_1189I loved seeing Pac encourage and Help Krash, even though they weren’t on the same team. IMG_1194

The “Pickle Boys” in action {Krash named them}. IMG_1220Krash beat Pac Man in Wii Resort sword fighting!!!!! IMG_1227

 

Moms Favorite

What can I say?  When I looked over from feeding Ladybug dinner and caught this view I just had to grab the camera.  Little man had removed his shirt and was just chillin with his dad watching him play Pac Man.IMG_1198
