My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

Tot School Week 11- Letter R

Tot School
This week we started with the Letter R (we do 2 weeks of focusing on a letter because we only do REALLY planned activities on Tuesday and Thursday).  I think Scarlett (who just turned 3) needs lots of unscheduled, unpredictable PLAY time because that is what a child should be doing at this age- lots of PLAYING!  :)

We also talked about the Olympics this week and the color RED! :)


Working on copying the capital Letter R

Making RAINBOWS (Letter R and color RED) with coffee filters, droppers, and food coloring!

 

SOOO PRETTY! :)  She had LOTS of fun doing this- I think she would have done it ALL day!

THURSDAY PRESCHOOL PLAYDATE:   They made people with shapes, rectangles, circles, triangles, squares, etc. VERY COOL!
 They did lots of fun little indoor "Olympic Activities" and then made the cutest #1 Ribbons with sticky foam paper - Scarlett LOVED this and wore the ribbon all day!

More Letter R tracing practice and R is for RAINBOWS!

Letter R word search on dlk-teach.com-- she colored the letter R's that she found!


I have to admit this week looks very scarce... we did LOTS of random unscheduled activities and not so many pictures were taken.  Not to mention my girls were a little under the weather with colds and some sinus allergy stuff.  So... I know it looks like we were slackers! LOL
I have more letter R for this coming week and lots of cool ideas for my Thursday Preschool Playdate- so stay tuned!
