"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 W

Tot School: Letter W
Age: 32 months

I had done letter boxes in the past and Raelynn didn't show interest, but I thought I would try it again since she has enjoyed playing with the beans lately.
She liked it! I did white beans because W is for white.  I gathered all of our Ws and some of the different activities (lacing card, shadow match, 3 piece puzzle, upper-lower case match, etc) and put them in the box for her to explore on the first day.

learning the letter of the week--stickers

magnet W page--watering can and wagon

Using the new W stamp we bought at the garage sale.....and notice her mouth! ha
W is for White:
She sorted pictures that were "white" or "not white".  It was also a great vocabulary builder
These are part of a printable set from Homeschool Creations. Jolanthe has offered this set for free in every color.  We use it a lot in many different ways.  I printed on cardstock then laminated.
W is for Watermelon:
And she loved cutting the seeds!
W is for Worm:
Raelynn LOVED this! We read a few books about a worm, looked online at real worms, and then the best part was when she 'hid' the worm outside in the dirt to 'scare' daddy:)  Cutest little worm I've ever seen!

W is for White:
Sorting white and black items.  This is a printable from 3 dinosaurs and can be found at the bottom of the page under "color activities" and it is called 'color sorting'.  It is a free printable in each color.  I printed on cardstock and laminated. They fit great in a ziplock bag, so it is perfect for a 'busy bag' idea once colors are mastered.
W is for Web:
She liked this, even though mommy ended up doing most of the work for the web! The spider is made from her hands, which she loved.
W is for Wrist:
Raelynn LOVES tracing her hand and while she was doing it this week, it dawned on me--W is for Wrist! So she learned a new body part:)  We also played with a watch on her wrist.
Some books we read and movies we watched:
Other ideas that we incorporated with no photos:  W is for Winnie the Pooh, Water, Wagon, Whale, Waffles, Window, Walk
Tiny Tot Time:
I have a milk jug that has a hole cut in the bottom that the babies like to put things in.  This week we did jingle bells.  They were having more fun putting them back into the glass jar and jingling them in their hands

Declan is doing really well with this Melissa and Doug sorting puzzle.  He doesn't sort, but it is great for motor development as he puts them on the pegs.
