Tot School - Fun with "K"

Jadyn is 42 months old & Gabe is 23 months old.
Tot School 
Finally, we are back to a routine after Christmas break.  Jadyn was excited to get back to school.  Gabe, not so much.  He's been very active lately so we went with that and let him climb and explore everything! LOL.  Our focus this week was the letter "K", number "13", and house hold objects.  Here's what we did this week.

Dot-a-dot fun with the letter "K".
"K" coloring paper.
Can I just say how much I love to hear Jadyn say the word "koala"!!!
Jadyn loved this kangaroo craft.  She really like taking the joey in and out of the kangaroo's pocket.
Matching big "K" and little "k"
Coloring 13 plates on the turtle's shell.
Roll a kite.  This was difficult for Jadyn, but good practice for her to learn her numbers and match the pictures.  We will definitely be doing more of these.
How many bows go on the kite's tail?
Making a kite out of her geometric shapes.  She always loves these.
Coloring her verse.  She loves the new paint brushes she got from Nanny & Papa for Christmas.  Everything she colored this week was extra colorful! =) 
Her cut & paste glue craft (and more colorful coloring!)
"Keep your tongue from evil."  A great verse to work on this week with her.  She's been saying unkind words to her brothers so it was a good reminder for her to realize how hurtful words can be and how helpful kind words can be.
Color matching
Trying out Gabe's new game he got for Christmas Wok & Roll.  Very fun!  Great game for toddlers & preschoolers.  We played several variations!  She loved it! 
We talked about Jesus walking out to the disciples on the water.  And about what happened when Peter took his eyes off of Jesus.
My wonderful hubby got me an ipad for Christmas!  I think the kids have been playing with it more than I have! =)  Here's some games that Jadyn loved this week.
Matching Zoo (Great memory card game).  We have the lite version.  She loves it!
Shape puzzle for kids (lite version)  Jadyn enjoys puzzle and nothing beats a puzzle on the ipad! 
Fairy Tale Dress Up (lite version)  I think this might have been her favorite this week. 
Like I said, Gabe was being a monkey this week and really wasn't interested in sitting and "doing school".  Here's what he was up to this week.
He did do some dot-a-dot with Jadyn.
But then he just wanted to take the caps on and off. 
He loved his new Cars stickers he got for Christmas. 
I was thrilled when he actually sat and watched "Super Why" for a little bit (I knew he wasn't destroying anything for 15 min. LOL)
Trying to use up some energy on his bike.
Trying out his new Wok & Roll game he got for Christmas. 
Concentrating very hard!=) 
Dumping blankets and a whole bin of toys in the laundry basket and then sitting on all of them to watch Mickey Mouse Club house.  I'm guessing that's comfortable?! 
Lots of gymnastics from recliner to recliner!
Gabe was all about the blinds this week.  He learned how to open them and close them and added several fingerprints to my window this week.

Winter Fun!!

We made some snowmen this week since it's probably the only snowmen we'll see here in Miami.  Gabe wasn't happy I made him be still for a picture with his snowman! Jadyn , however, was very proud of her snowman!

Great Tot School activities.

Your pictures/descriptions of your little boy just made me smile. My little boy is a lot like yours. He hardly wants to sit still and prefers running around, climbing and playing with his trucks to almost everything else.

I stopped in from Fun Stuff Friday and I'm following you now on GFC.

So many great ideas for me to keep in mind for when we get to the letter K in a couple weeks! We did ice and igloos last week and are skipping around for a couple weeks before getting back on with K maybe the first week of February.

I am a new follower on GFC :)
