Totally 3 {Week 2} : Letter Tt

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

Monday:

We started with letter T.  Todays theme was trains, although we really didn’t do a lot with trains today.  We began our day with some pre writing practice.  Back a couple of weeks ago, I had made a prewrite page that connected the letters of his name.  He absolutely loved it. 

While I scrambled to get a few things together that I had forgot to do last night, Thing 2 worked on a train color by number sheet.  Then once I finally came back, I helped Thing 2 color the page correctly.  I absolutely loved that one on one time with him and even better I loved seeing him getting into his learning.

Next I had him make a capital T and a lower case t on the geoboard.  He thought that was pretty cool.  Granted it was a little difficult for him, he loved playing with the rubber bands.

Next up, I had him use the pattern blocks to make the letter T.  He loved that.  It is so adorable to see his happy face when he figures our a difficult part or completes the picture.

 Tuesday:

Nothing

Wednesday:

Wednesday was T is for Trucks.  We started out by driving some trucks on our letter T and t roads.  This was a big hit for Thing 2.

Next I was finally able to try out the Engine Shed game with Thing 2, except we used cars instead of trains.  This game was a bigger hit with Thing 2 than it was for Thing 1.  I loved his face each time he would recognize the number.

Once I was able to convince him to stop the game.  I helped Thing 2 make his stained glass heart for his shape this week.  It was also good cutting practice.

Thursday:

T is for Turtle.  We played the with the geoboard again today.  As soon as I put it down he got right to work.  It is great motor skills practice.

Then we played a shape matching game.  He struggled a little bit at first, but as soon as he figured it out he was on a roll.

Next on the agenda was a little counting practice.  I gave him a turtle and I had him roll a die and count the dots.  He would then place that many pom-poms on the turtle.

To end the day, I had made a turtle with different color circles on it.  He had to glue the same color pom pom to the same color circle.  It was great practice for colors and using only a little bit of glue. He was so proud of his work.

Thing 2 had a great day today.  He was having such a good time and he wanted to learn.  He actually asked me for more school stuff to do.  I love it!

Friday:

Daddy Cameron was home and available to play most of the day, and Daddy Cameron trumps school any day.

I loved how much Thing 2 got into school this week.  He is really starting to love it as much as Thing 1, which means I will have to start planning more for him to do.
