Tot School: Green

Theme: Green
(K is 21.5 months old)

Song: 5 Green And Speckled Frogs
Feltboard: Red Fish, Red Fish What Do You See?

Question (s) To Practice: What's your name? How old are you? How are you today? Can you show me a happy/ sad/ mad/ scared/ surprised/ silly face?

Make Something Monday: K used a green Do-A-Dot to decorate his paper. Then we glued green pictures over top of it and practiced saying the words.
Tasty Tuesday: We read "Green Eggs And Ham" by Dr Seuss then we made green eggs and ham for lunch. K helped pour the ingredients into the pan but he liked taste testing them when they were finished the best.
Weird Science Wednesday: I filled two glasses with water then we dropped yellow food coloring into one glass and blue into the other. I gave K an eye dropper and some white tissue paper (I didn't have any coffee filters). He dropped yellow and blue onto the tissue paper to make a green picture.
Tidy Up Thursday: K helped clean up and sort all of his toys. I gave him an egg carton which I had painted different colours and he sorted his toys by colour into the egg carton. Then I let K practice pouring rice into a bottle. We added pictures of the animals from "Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?" to make a Brown Bear Eye Spy Bottle.
Field Trip Friday  Sunday: We went for a walk near our house and saw lots of rabbits and kookaburras. Then we went and fed a horse that lives nearby a carrot.

Some Other Activities We Like This Week:
-Throwing and catching a ball
-Practicing hopping, jumping and blowing bubbles 
-Sorting foam bugs (red, yellow, green, blue) and putting them into a container
-Musical colours: I placed red, yellow, green and blue papers around the living room. We played music and danced around. When the music stopped I called out a colour and K had to find and stand on the colour. He also loved jumping from paper to paper.
-Coloring on the windows with our window crayons
-Playing with Little People

  1. Looks like a great week! I love the green page! They will fun to look back on and remember the colors.

  2. I love your musical colors idea! What a great fun way to review colors.

  3. Just scoping out tot school ideas for my 20 month old and I LOVE your concept of a different focus for each day of the week. As much as I know my bubba loves painting, playing in the water, helping cook etc, doing it every day is just toooo daunting mess-wise, but this would give me a structure to my week and an idea for each day! Hope you don't mind if I borrow (I will definitely attribute the idea to you if I ever blog about what I've been doing).

  4. I too love the idea for a different focus every day. It's so much fun to visit your site and gather up ideas for my boys which is why I gave you an award here. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Looks like a great week! You were so planned out! I like the idea of having questions to practice with little ones. Thanks for sharing!
    Have a great day!

  6. I've been working on colors with my son. Usually the first pages in books are a single color and I tell him that and ask him to repeat it. He's two. I love this idea. I'm going to take a color a day and use this technique. Very clever. Thanks for the idea.

  7. You have kookaburras where you live??? How awesome is that! We looked them up on Youtube when we studied the letter K and we sang the Kookaburra song. They are very interesting birds.

  8. Great ideas! I love the little bug sorters. Where did you get them?


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I love reading comments and appreciate each and every one. Have a wonderful day & thanks for stopping by!
