"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Tot School: Letter T

Tot School: Letter T
Age: 32 months

I finally printed off that ABC page I had been wanting to from Make, Take, and Teach. She has a lot of other great printables too like numbers, rhyming, sight words, and phonics.  Some are free for download, others you can pay for. This one is free:)

To make it more exciting and a sensory activity, I put the letters in rice.  These letters are from Hobby Lobby
Watercoloring our weekly letter
Homeschool Creations has these letters to print out for every letter of the alphabet
Stickers on our weekly letter
T is for Turtle:
Instead of painting the turtle, she did the green Do-A-Dots on a paper plate

We added arms and legs and a head--and she even put the eyes in the proper place:)
T is for Traffic Light:
Raelynn loves traffic lights.  For months now, she will say "Go, Mama, Go" when the light turns green.  Well, she doesn't do it so much anymore because now she is just always singing in the backseat:)
I cut a bunch of triangles out, put the glue on the circles and told her to glue them next to the matching color T.  The T stickers are from Hobby Lobby.

T is for Tree:
This printable I had from the 3 dinosaurs Earth Day printable pack.  You can find that here

And since fall is right around the corner, well technically I guess maybe it's here.  But not here in Arizona.  Just for you folks in states that have seasons:)  You may want to check out 3 dinosaurs FALL printable pack.  Lots of goodies in there!  You can find that here.
**Before we started the ABC letter a week, we stuck to tot packs in the notebook with clear page protectors on them. There is prewriting practice, cutting (which we never did) counting, puzzles, and more.  Lots of good stuff.  I will probably go back to these once we get to letter Z!
**Remember, if your tot is nearing or just turning two, they probably won't do a lot of these things-or any of them-independently.  Not at first.  Do it with them, tell them the answer and show them.  They will catch on so fast!
T is for Train:
This is a 1plus1plus1equals1 printable and can be found here
She puts the puff ball magnets on the letters using a cookie sheet

She is more interested in coloring now!

We made train tracks and she enjoyed driving her train on it.

T is for Tractor:

T is for Turtle and color review:
This is an old book that was given to me.  It may be old, but it has some fun activities in it:) 

T is for Tree:

I got the felt board out for Raelynn and was SO happy that she liked it! I had cut all these things out a long time ago and she didn't have any interest then.

We put the apples on the tree

Then we took the apples off and put in the bucket. We practiced our counting!

She even found a bag of shapes I had made and wanted to play with those. I was super happy!

And last, but not least because it was probably the best T activity we did all week....
T is for TEA PARTY!

Well, maybe a water party, but she had fun pretending:) we did FaceTime with Auntie Dre and Adele and all enjoyed tea and talking.  We love them so much!
