See Part 1 of Letter J here!

Tot School Printables J is for Jellyfish

Letter: Jj

Object: Jellyfish

Vocabulary Development Theme: Ocean Animals

You can find the printables for this unit here on the Tot School Printables webpage.

We continued on with our letter Jj week, partly because I wanted to extend our ocean activities and also because of laziness on my part-not wanting to plan and prepare the next unit! Ladybug did not mind at all!IMG_6200

She colored her vocabulary sheet at least 5 different times with her dry erase markers like this!!!IMG_6235

She LOVES her new Crayola Dry Erase Activity Board, and I love that I can slip the sheets in so easily now!IMG_6388

She LOVED the accordion book from the Ocean Animals Tot Book, so I made her another one!IMG_6204

She “played” with them a lot and really enjoyed coloring them with me!IMG_6215

I made her some Ocean Animals Cutting Strips, and she really struggled with these. I plan to add these in each week to give her more cutting practice!IMG_6224

I made ocean word cards for her to color also, she really liked that Baba colored with her {my dad}.IMG_6243

Fun Books & Toys for this unit here!

This section cracks me up. I promise it was not planned at ALL, but every single toy I have a photo of is from Guidecraft! Yes, I review for them and we love their toys, but I promise I didn’t even realize that’s what she played with all week until I pulled the photos together! I wasn’t intentional with planning this week and many of the toys were just laying around in our {very} messy schoolroom.

So, Guidecraft, this one’s for you…thank for all for the amazing toys that my daughter obviously LOVES!

The balancing shape sorter is a favorite these days, both with Ladybug and Krash.IMG_6306

Another favorite with all 3 kids right now is our City Blocks set. These blocks are simply gorgeous and the kids are all drawn to them. I was building with Ladybug and then she began counting the pieces on her own! She can count to 11 now consistently!IMG_6415

The Sky Scraper Building set is not a favorite with the boys, but Ladybug LOVES it! Funny how they don’t all love the same thing and I thought the boys would really like this one. That’s my Dad ~ Baba, playing with her!

You can see her saying “green” as she puts the shape on!!IMG_6438

She loves the Sound Box, even if it is way to hard for her to find the matches. The sounds are very similar, I need to take the concept and make our own that will be easier for her!IMG_6328

She played a lot with our Fraction Board and is already so much better with it!IMG_6423

She had fun sticking dot stickers on her paper. I purposely placed them all around her to encourage different fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.IMG_6399She wandered over to Baba and had him join her a bit too!IMG_6404

Techy-Tot_thumb2_thumbThe iPad continues to get a daily workout!! Ladybug LOVES it! Here she is a Montessori based game that both she and Krash really enjoy ~ Montessori Crosswords.IMG_6217

She has many more favorites, I am working on a post to share educational apps we love!
