The next activity was cutting. Little Guy asked specifically for some cutting practice. I quickly made the cutting strips on Microsoft Excel, using some clip art pictures of umbrellas. After cutting them apart, he then had to glue them onto the big U. He did not really want to glue the umbrellas, but we turned it into a counting activity, which made it slightly more motivating.
Next up were some printables. These came from 1+1+1=1 and 3 Dinosaurs. Little Guy had fun using the U letter stamp and finding the U's. (Note on the dot markers- Little Guy holds them down for a long time to make the circle dark, so I ended up putting more paper under them so the ink does not bleed onto the table.)
The next activity was a shape match from 1+1+1=1. I cut out all the shapes and cut a copy of them from black paper. Little Guy's task was to match the shape with its shadow and name the shape. He seems to know his shapes, so it is a good review. This is one task he did not want to do, even though it was very quick for him to complete.
The last activity was color matching, again from 1+1+1=1. Each little card had an umbrella and a color word, printed in that color. Little Guy had to match the same colored crayon to each sheet. (He was able to complete this by looking at the colors, not reading the words.) After he matched them all, he could color the umbrellas. I think he colored 2 umbrellas before he was done.
So there you have it! Another week of Tot School. We only have 3 more letters! What have you done int Tot School?
