Tot School - "E" is Excellent!

Jadyn is 40 months old & Gabe is 20 months old
. Tot School
After having 2 weeks off of tot school Jadyn was so excited to get to work on the Letter E.  We also focused on the number 6, the sight word "is", the color purple, and kitchen and food things.  Can I just say how cute she says the word "sushi".  She calls it "squishy!"  I would make her say it over and over! =)  Here's our week in pictures.
Jadyn reading "Where is the egg?" to Gabe.

What a beautiful purple paper!

An elephant puppet.  Jadyn loved that her finger was the trunk.

Dot-a-dot "E"

The number "6"

We made a crown and talked about Queen Esther.

Jadyn colored her verse. "Even a child is known by his deeds." Prov. 20:11
Photobucket
Practicing cutting.
  Photobucket 
Tracing "E".  She didn't enjoy tracing as much this week.
  Photobucket 
 She was proud of the elephant she made out of shapes.

Matching Big "E" and little "e"
  Photobucket 
Matching what goes in each room.  She thought it was funny to put the food in the bedroom.
  Photobucket 
Shape sorting
  Photobucket 
Matching numbers

I think this was her favorite activity for the week.  She had to find the "e" magnets out of all the alphabet magnets and then stick them on the filing cabinet.  You can see Gabe was enjoying it, too.
  Photobucket 
Jadyn's verse was tiny this week.
  Photobucket
Reviewing all the letters we've learned and the word cards for each letter!
Photobucket
Jadyn let Gabe help her color her "E" paper.

Gabe is learning so much!  He's really started talking these last two weeks.  He says "puppy", "nasty", "Hi!", "Buh-bye", "Mama", "Daddy", and repeats a bunch of things we say to him.  I love watching him just take everything in.  He's such a copycat now.  I'm glad Jadyn doesn't mind. =)

Learning that flowers smell so good!
  Photobucket 
He decided to play football with the education cubes!
  Photobucket 
Gabe loves the shape sorter and he's getting much better at putting the shapes back on!
  Photobucket 
Reading a Thomas Book.
  Photobucket 
Playing with the color chips and a bin.
  Photobucket 
This kid loves dot-a-dot markers and the mess they can make! =)
  Photobucket 
Knocking down my tower.
  Photobucket 
I guess this is a better way to play with the blocks! =)
  Photobucket 
A little peek-a-boo under the chair.  He was so proud of finding the car while we were playing.
  Photobucket 
Gabe has almost mastered the shape sorter. The triangle still confuses him, but that's ok! =)
  Photobucket 
It was good to get back to a schedule and they were so excited to be "back in school" like big brother Mj!  Thanks to 1+1+1=1  and Confessions of a Homeschooler for all the great printables and ideas!

I got the giggles looking at the pictures of Gabe. My son is 23 months and I think they would get along great. During tot-time, he is the dumper and the under the chair kid! =)

Found your blog through tot school - love all the pictures! Isn't it fun to capture their playfulness so we can always remember!!

In case you're interested I am also a homeschooling mom (ages 1,3,6) if you want to check out my blog - www.livinglifeintentionally.blogspot.com

I love the picture of the basket of blocks over his head. So cute!

The elephant craft is adorable, too!

Oh,and please tell me your 3 year old did not color that purple paper? If so, she puts my 3 year old to shame! ;)
