Tot School- X is for Xylophone

Woo Hoo!  Another week over and a letter completed!  In this busy summer, we seem to be finding just enough time to finish up the alphabet.  Last week we worked on X is for Xylophone.  Little Guy is 37 months old.

The favorite activity (by far) last week was the cutting tray.  I had a six compartment tray that I had bought (at the dollar store) for Little Guy's birthday party.  I decided to re-use it for cutting practice this week.  The six different cutting activities are:
Little Guy really enjoyed these.  We did not get everything cut, but it was fun to have such a variety.   He really enjoyed cutting the straws, but I think part of that is that the little pieces would fly off when they were cut!

This week we only had one printable.  I printed the "Find the X" page from the Romping and Roaring X Pack at 3 Dinosaurs.  Little Guy had the choice to stamp the X's or put a sticker on them.  He started by using the X stamp, but finished by using the stickers.

The next activity was fun and yummy.  Little Guy used pretzel sticks to make X's.  As he made the X, he also had to say "X!"  After making 10 X's (I helped him count), he got to eat a pretzel!  What a yummy reward!

We did some coloring matching again this week.  Little Guy had to match the colored pencils to the color on the xylophone, printed from 1+1+1=1.  Since I printed them in color, Little Guy just had to recognize each color to match it up.  Once they were all matched, he could color the pictures.

The last activity was making a big X.  Little Guy had to make the X look like a xylophone.  We got out one of his toy xylophones and then he had to match the order of the colors.

 As we get ready to wrap up our Tot School alphabet, I am looking forward to celebrating with Little Guy.  How have you celebrated the end of a unit with your little ones?
