Tot School- Letter S and Solar System with Letter T

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

Abby is 41.5 months old.



We are finally in the home stretch of finishing the alphabet.  Based on my plans, we should be done at the beginning of March.  Things haven't been quite as smooth the past few months, but slowly and surely we are starting to get back on track.

We studied the Solar System during our Letter S week.  Abby was really intrigued by the Magic School Bus series on space adventure.  She became aware of the planets, comets and other space related items.  We had been practicing the names of planets and one day, without help, she recited them perfectly.  I was shocked and super proud! 

Most of our work for Letter S and T, has been on her easel and computer, so pictures are not so easy to do.  She is becoming more interested in writing letters and we usually spend quite a while drawing and writing during the day.

One thing I see we need to work on is number recognition and we will be focusing on that intensely before March.

However, one beautiful day, we took a field trip to the local zoo.  Abby is always thrilled to see animals, so she was a happy little girl that day.

 Abby really liked the Hippo.  I think she wanted to swim in the pool too. :-)



The beloved swinging bridge.  We are going to have to construct one of these at some point because she has the best time.
