Totschool Bb

So we did Bb for totschool this past week and what better way to start out B week than a quick trip to the beach! Daddy had to go for work and we went down for a couple of days.

She loved digging in the sand and was quite content to sit here on the (B)lanket for a long time.


We then went and played in the water for a while but mommy didn’t get any pictures since I was by myself and I couldn’t handle the waves and the camera at the same time. After the (B)each we went up to the pool where they were having free hotdogs.IMG_2985 IMG_2987

And free mimosas for the mommies, lol!


It was so lovely at the (b)each I thought I would throw in some pictures to this post for (b) for (b)eautiful:

These were all taken at night and that is the moon.

When we got back home we continued with Bb and also our creation lessons. As I was editing these pictures I noticed that Shelby Lynn’s shirts look very similar. We did not do all these activities in one day, it was spread out over two days!

Working on tracing the number 2 from our Mickey Mouse Trace book. I can’t tell if she is going to be a lefty or righty, she is using both hands, this time it was the left:


We also learned about our body parts this week. This puzzle came from the Target $1 section. They have such great education items for only a dollar!


Pasting (B)ody parts on our (B)ig B. This activity came from 2 Teaching Mommies. Another great blog that has all the work done for you!


Brown, Brown Bear. I cut the animals out of different colored felt and let her tell the story…she really liked this activity.


Letter of the Week Curriculum:

doadot B…she back to using her right hand!


Butterfly Letter sort


For our creation lessons we continued with Hubbard’s Cupboard:

Day and Night sort game, I was pleasantly surprised at how well she did with this.


Very Happy when she completed it!


Creation Day 4 craft. I tried to get her to hold it up for the camera, but she wouldn’t look at the camera!


We have the leap frog word builder so I started her on building the (at) words, like hat, bat, mat, ect…


Worked on the B page in her “How to Build an A” book


And her featured toy of the week was her little people barnyard, which she sang Old MacDonald while playing with it! I am trying to rotate her toys and pull out one each week that goes with what we are learning and it seems to be working quite well.


Here are some more pictures of the way our “schoolroom” is set up. This week I got a dish drainer from Target and put her puzzles in, it seems to be working pretty well….puzzles are so hard to store. If anyone has any other suggestions I would love to hear them!


Our bulletin board with our Bible verses and Our ABC flip book


I purchased several of these mats from the $1 section at Target to keep on her table for craft time. They come in all different learning themes:


$1 Plan book from Target. If you can’t find them 1+1+1=1 has a great post on this.

And I finally got around to organizing my Totschool supply cabinet, I should have taken a before picture because it was baaaaaaaddddd! Luckily it had doors on it, lol!
