Tot School - Jj

Tot School - Jj is for Jungle Animals
Owen and Eli are 40 months old

Other than jungle animals, the letter J wasn't all that exciting of a letter for us, but it still worked out great because we spent a lot of time on writing and coloring letter J printables this week. Owen used the correct grip for his marker too, which was a huge accomplishment! We tried color-by-numbers again and I think it went better than last week. They really seemed to understand the matching of the colors with the upper and lower case letters and the finished product ended up looking vaguely like a jack-o-lantern. Score! : )

The letter maze is from here, the color by letter is from here, the J is for Juggling Elmo page is from here, and the Letter J writing practice is from here.

We read lots of books about Jungle animals and then they chose the animals they liked the best for our J is for Jungle Animals paper plate craft. We made bananas out of play-doh for all the monkeys we found around the house too. Then we used the counting cards from here to match the items to the corresponding numeral and the boys got some practice squeezing the glue themselves.

On to Letter Kk... have any good ideas for us? To see what other Tot Schoolers are doing, check out 1+1+1=1.
