We took a bit of time off from Tot School during Christmas while we travelled halfway across the country to visit family for three weeks. Needless to say, the boys were excited to get back into a routine and have some structure to their day. We focused on Ee is for Elephant. I found some pretty cute ideas out there in bloggerland and came up with a couple of my own.
The boys are pretty good with capital letters - I think they actually know all of them already (thanks Super Why!), so we focused on the lowercase e for our alphabet craft.
As for our elephant activities, we played 'Hide and Seek Elephant' a lot and the boys loved it! We did some size sequencing, matched numbers to the numbers of the elephants, made elephants out of their handprints and I found an Easter egg craft that we didn't get to around Easter to focus on E is for Eggs.
We did a lot of review of other alphabet letters this week too: Starfall.com, writing letters on the magna doodle, creating letters out of their blocks and finding letters in the stories we read. We looked for elephants in their picture books too, and watched the Elephant on the Run episode of Backyardigans (I love that show : )
Hope y'all had a great week in Tot School. Onto Ff!
