Tot School: Alphabet Week

(this post contains affiliate links)


Hulk is starting to show more interest in doing school work with his brother.  I'm a firm believer in less is more at his age, and I don't think he's quite ready for "Pre-K" type work.  However, I don't want to discourage him, either.  So right now, we'll just focus on a very generalized theme each week.  He will get his own basket, and I'll fill it with books, puzzles, games and/or toys related to the theme.

This week's theme . . .
The Alphabet 





Puzzles and Games

We have both a capital and lowercase foam puzzle (Dollar Tree) so I put both of those in his basket and we named the letters as we took them out and put them back in.




I bought these ABC cards at the dollar tree a long time ago; probably in one of those 3-packs of card games.  We matched up the pictures and practiced saying our letter sounds.




Literature

We have a few basic (a - apple, b-bear, c-cat) type alphabet books, but I want our reading time to focus on more engaging books.  We have a few interesting books on our shelves, so I made sure to get them all out.  No pictures, though, as we all four cuddled on the couch for some reading time.






JUST FOR FUN

We played a few iPad games...too bad I have terrible memory and can't remember any names except angry bird star wars.




The barn and animals were from a neighbor, and Hulk has always loved farm animals, so this has been a huge hit.




Wearing their new Star Wars Angry Birds hooded blankets!  I love the rotten smiles!





It's been a quiet week with just a few activities, but the beautiful weekend was spent outdoors having fun!  Next week's theme is Colors Of the Rainbow/St. Patrick's Day, so we should have a  little fun!
