Munchkin was 36.5m
Little Bear was 18m when we did these activities.
We used our Tot School Notebook with printables from here. I love that he is doing more intentional coloring these days, for the longest he just scribbled over the pictures. Of course I did catch him in a good mood and that has a lot to do with how our tot school goes.
This was our first time practicing cutting on a line, I printed these bug cutting strips from here. Up until now I've been giving him scraps and letting him go to town. I think he did pretty well.
I'm letting him do more and more gluing, but we still worked together to make this L is for Lion. Check out No Time For Flash Cards for great letter art activities. This is actually something I really struggle with. You'd think as a second grade teacher I'd be totally used to messes and backwards feet, but it slightly drives me up the wall. I know that I need to let him be more independent when it comes to art. This is something I really need to work on... I don't want to stifle his creativity.
|I glued the first foot... and had to hold my hands behind my back so I wouldn't "fix" the other three.|
Little Bear is getting in on tot school more as well. Last week I introduced him to green. He really loves dot painting. I don't expect him to identify the colors yet, I just want to expose him to them. Plus it's easier having him in his chair and occupied while I work with Munchkin. I printed the color book from Memorizing the Moments.
I even let Little Bear get in on the letter art action. I put dots of glue to the paper after he colored it. I then guided his hand to place the the pieces on. Then I had to pry the little pieces from his hand.
This week we are working on Letter M. Check out some other great tot school post here.
