I will probably end up doing Tot School posts weekly, but for now I'm too excited to get these ideas out there. Tuesday we didn't do much because M&M wasn't feeling very good, but we did play Color and Shapes Bingo.
Before I could get her to go on to anything else we had to play "Let's Go Fishin.'" Even though this game says it's for 4+ she enjoys playing it and can get some fish every once in a while all on her own. It's great practice for her to try and keep her hand still.
We finally got to our ABC overview since I want to start Letter A next week. We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It's a lot of fun and has a lot of activities to go along with it. I got the book through a book order because my sister is a teacher and it came with a CD. The CD had some fun songs that had good rhythm that M&M loved to dance to. We made a poster with our own coconut tree and letters. I got this idea here. For more Alphabet ideas go to the "Now I know my ABC's" section of the Totally Tots website.
M&M wanted to do more so I got out my ice cube tray number sorting activity that I found here. We counted plastic gemstones. She didn't really want to count after number 8 so we enjoyed just pouring the stones into the tray.
