This was our first day of tot school. It went pretty well. They stayed focused for 10-12 minutes today on our Apple/Letter A. They had fun making the sound of "A" and finding Apples on their worksheets. For a free printable of this weeks Tot School go here Tot School Printables : 1plus1plus1equals1.net. She has A-Z. My goal isn't for them to catch everything right away. Just be exposed and have fun learning. Luckily they both are eager to learn right now, so they had a lot of fun with this. Today we "learned" what the letter Aa looks like, what it sounds like, what starts with the letter Aa (apple), and the color red. Later this week we'll do fruits, counting apples, and matching apple puzzles.
EC really just wanted to play with her new pink folder.
They loved finding the apple on the page and scribbling on them.
We also read the same book about 20 times today. They laugh every time I read it and want to read it over and over. I would finally have to tell them I was done reading the book and they could read it on their own if they wanted to. And that is exactly what they did. Pretty much between every activity they would grab this book.
I actually really like the book. There aren't very many words so you get to add a lot of expression, which they think is hilarious.
So I'm looking forward to the rest of the week. We have one sick girl today, hoping it doesn't spread. And she is over it soon. We have story time at the library tomorrow and then Thursday my ladies bible study starts so they will get to play with some other kiddos.
I'm looking into some Valentine activities we can do in Feb. Of course Pinterest will be one of my first go to resources for this :)
Hope everyone has a great start to their week!
