Tot School - Ll

Owen and Eli: 31 Months

Ll is for Ladybugs and Leaves! We had a short school week because my brother and his family came for a visit, but we managed to squeeze in a few activities anyway. We started out with do-a-dot L's from Confessions of a Homeschooler and used L outlines to make leaf collages with our backyard leaf scavenger hunt findings. They loved talking about the little and large leaves and trying to get them to stick to the glue.

We used the size sequencing ladybugs from Confessions of a Homeschooler too. We put them in size order and rainbow order, we matched our Melissa and Doug fish color puzzle to the ladybugs and they answered questions that I would ask them ('Which fish is the littlest?' 'Which fish is the largest?'). We finished out the week by making ladybug magnets with foam, glue and pipe cleaners too. They love anything that has to do with arts and crafts these days!

We're going to take a break from the alphabet next week to focus on Easter activities. Hard to believe we're almost halfway through the alphabet already! Click here to see what others did this week.

I'm visiting you from Tot School. We have 31month old GGB triplets so it will be exciting to watch along as you do Tot school. We had high ambitions last fall, but decided to wait. We will be starting now thru summer.

I'm in the planning stages. I'd love to hear from you as to where you get most of your ideas from. I already follow Confessions and 1+1+1. Any others you love? Angela
