Tot School

Tot School
Be sure to click the link above to see what everyone else did this week!
Ladybug, Ladybug fly away home!

Our theme this week was ladybugs. I tried to do a mini lapbook for Shelby Lynn. I don't think she is quite ready for them, but a couple of the activities worked. We also checked out the Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. She normally loves his books but this one I think was a little advanced but she did like the pictures. We also colored a ladybug and worked with magnetic letters and sorting colors. On Friday we got a kid's meal from Chick-fil-a, and I was shocked to find the "prize" a package on ladybugs....yea! Here are some pics of our week:

Coloring the ladybug. You can get it HERE
She loved using the big girl crayons to color with, she could manipulate them much better than the chunky ones.

Here is part of her lapbook. They are ladybug letters that you can get HERE
She mainly just took them in and out of the pocket, but as she did, I told her then letters and she repeated, A, Y, G.

Here she is playing with her magnetic school house by Parents, which we bought at Target.

Sorting the letters by color. She really liked this activity.

This pic was taken by Shelby Lynn. I was shocked that she was able to push the button and the pic turned out okay, too! She loves playing with the camera, she gets that from my best bud, Melanie! And speaking of Melanie, her little one, Zoe was very disappointed to learn that this week was ladybug theme and she was not here to help:

I love how one toy can be used for different things (alphabet and then color sorting). :)

Thank you! We had purchased the "Magnet School" a long time ago but put it away until RockerTot was ready. I forgot all about it until I saw your dd using hers. I took it out tonight and ds had so much fun placing the letters on the cards!

Thank you again and again.

I love that magnet school! Great tip! We're focusing on "love" this month. I think we'll make that lady bug since it looks like a heart-shape. :)
