Tot School - Pp

Owen & Eli: 33 months old

Pp is for Pirates, Policemen, Pizza and Peter Pan! I pulled these activities from Homeschool Creations and Mama's Monkeys.

Coloring the chef's hats to match the color word and matching alphabet magnets to the letter pizzas. We also traced lines to get the chef to the oven (not pictured)...

My boys are in love with Peter Pan these days. The tot pack was a little too old for them (it included a lot of reading and writing) but I pulled out the activities that were age appropriate for them. A coloring page with Pp is for Peter, tracing a line from Captain Hook to the crocodile and rolling a cube with the characters to practice graphing. Eli loved that one, Owen just wanted to eat the Cheerios : ) Of course we watched Peter Pan and ate popcorn this week too!

Melissa and Doug pirate stickers on the outlines of Pp...

The Policeman tot pack from Homeschool Creations was very toddler friendly. They traced the letter Pp, drew lines to connect the policeman to the robber, colored the police hats to match the color word and we made stop lights out of toilet paper rolls. They saw 'Green means Go' every time we're at a stop light now. I've had a lot of trouble in the past with color matching/coloring activities, but this time I colored over the word with the corresponding color, then the boys matched the crayon to the right paper, then I gave them a set to color (right crayon with right paper). It went much smoother and we didn't end up with every color on every page.

That's all for Pp - onto Qq! To see what other Tot Schoolers did this week, click over to 1+1+1=1.

Fun week!! We always enjoy the roll and graph activites. You should checkout Confessions of a Homeschooler for cute letter activities. They're really adaptable for the little guys.

Just popping in from Tot School.
