Tot School- D is for Duck

Monday, October 06, 2014

Summer is 26 months old.

Summer is loving her 'cool' time!  It's been a good way for us to spend some quality time together and she's so eager to participate, reminding me occasionally if our normal routine gets off track.

Our focus this week was D is for Duck and a bird theme.  Here's her setup...

Top Left to Right: Stacking cups, Pom pom transfer to colored containers, Alphabet letter match
Bottom Left to Right:  Shape match to go along with sensory bin, Bristle blocks, Tot School Printables with dot markers

She started off the beginning of the week using her hands to transfer the pom poms into the matching colored containers.

Towards the end of the week, I added some tongs.  She mostly played with them...

Then, she figured it out.

The rice bin was a fun experience!  She added in her yellow ducks and played for awhile.

I love the bright, bold color of the rice.  Here's how we made it!

Then, she wanted her stacking cups for pouring.

I hid a few shape cutouts in the rice bin for her to search for and match with another set on her tray.  She wasn't too interested in that idea.

She also wanted to paint during art time...ALOT!  My oldest is currently using Home Art Studio: First Grade.  You can read more about the curriculum here.
