Tot School - Gg & Hh

Tot School - Gg is for Green, Go and Gumball
Tot School - Hh is for Hippos, Hermit Crabs and Heroes
Owen and Eli: 40 months old

The Letter Gg kinda got lost in the shuffle. I had a hard time coming up with words that went with Gg, so we just did a couple crafts and called it a day. The gumball activity was so easy - just draw the outline and then use do-a-dots for the gumballs. 

After Christmas and all of our Christmas activities, we were all ready to get back to a normal routine. We learned all about hermit crabs and watched YouTube videos on how they change shells and what they eat. I found the handprint craft here, the letter hunt here, and the color-by-number here. I wasn't sure how the color-by-number would go, and quite honestly, it didn't go well, but it's kind of fun to see where they start as a benchmark for the future. Same goes for the super hero page on drawing circles and x's - NOT a huge success! They were really good at finding the right magnet to fill in the blank. Those activities both came from here. We had read several books from the library about hippos and horses, but I forgot to take a picture of them!
