~Aiden is currently 40 months old~
What a busy week! We were out and about much of the week, but we still managed to have lots of Tot School fun.
Our theme this week was owls and the letter O.
Letter of the Week
Aiden painted the owl and letter O, except for Mr. Owl’s tummy, which I covered. After it dried, I went around the O with a black marker and added eyes and feet, made from construction paper.
Book of the Week and Craft
Aiden’s favorite book this week was Owl Babies.
We made an owl house from an oatmeal container.
When we weren’t using it for one of our tot tray activities it housed our owl counters.
Another favorite book this week was Owl Moon.
After we read the book, I hide our letter O owl, and we went on an owl hunt.
Mum-mum worked with him on counting, using an Owl Number Matching Flip Book.
Aiden’s favorite activity this week was using the owl counters. He counted them and put them in order by size.
He pulled colored owls out of the owl house, naming the colors.
We worked on letter recognition. I would say “Little owl, little owl, time to fly”. He would grab one of our magnetic Leapfrog Letters from the house
and “fly” it to our magnetic board, where he would tell me the letter and place it on a tree.
He played with an owl matching game
and his Melissa & Doug Shape Puzzle. (Just for the record, I really do brush his hair in the mornings!)
We had a couple of sunny days, so we headed outside to play. Aiden had so much fun digging in the dirt.
Ah, glorious dirt something we haven’t seen in quite awhile.
