Still off of official school around here, we officially start back on Sept 12, after our kick off the school year trip to the beach with my parents the week before!
Vocabulary Development Theme: School Tools
You can find the printables for this unit here on the Tot School Printables webpage.
Ladybug has not been as into her Tot School Printables as she used to be, so we don’t spend the hours at the table these days. Totally fine with me, I love her learning any way she chooses at this stage! I still offer her the printables and she lets me know what she wants to do. We aren’t doing everything and that’s fine!
Here we used play doh to make her Pps and used a pencil to poke into the dough.
We put painters tape on a white paper and had fun dot painting it like crazy!
Gluing her numbers…
She played with Magneatos every day this week…
We made all sorts of things with our pop beads…
She loves our new Magnetic Matching Rings toy, it is more for Krash, but she is LOVING it! This is a really neat toy, if you have a 2-5 year old I definitely recommend adding this to your wish list!
Matching frogs and dragonflies…
Putting dot stickers on a turtle…
We had our schoolroom decked out for our camping theme this week, complete with our mini tent, ladybug sleeping bag, lanterns, flashlights and camping chair! Most of the camping school work that was done was from the Camping Preschool Pack and the Camping Pack…for Krash. But Ladybug enjoyed the many props we had out!
We spent TONS of time roll playing and enjoyed an official camp-out morning. We made fire wood out of tubes and put our electric flickering candles underneath for the fire. We also roasted wadded up paper marshmallows.
We are going to a camp for our summer staff retreat next week, so the timing was perfect! I have lots more to share about our camping fun, coming soon! You can see my collection of camping ideas I found here on Pinterest!
I bought the kids a Mighty World Camping set to play with and they loved it more than I thought they would! It is really tiny so perfect for a sensory bin. Add it to some beans = hours of fun!
I caught her reading in our bean bag chair, which she often does. I love reading photos and will grab my camera if it’s close by.
Pink Tevas and purple toes…perfect for splashing in puddles!
