Our Tot school last week ended in a trip to the park. It was definately something that went along with our theme. Love Bug went "boom" onto the ground and ended up at the ER with a concussion. We were asked to lay low on the teaching side for a while to let her brain heal- no strainous thinking :)
In addtion, two other tots had some accidents after we left for the hospital...so it really was Chicka Chicka boom boom. We do what we can to stick with our theme. :)
This week we did a winter theme, but with Love Bug's injury we really didn't do anything with her own, and didn't get pictures of tots together.
Here's to more chicka and less boom in the future.
This week in school we did Chicka Chicka boom boom, based on the book by Bill Martin Jr.
We LOVE this book!
We played with our Chicka Chicka boom boom tree
This was a crafting adventure of mine a year or so ago. Love Bug and Jedi love to play with it. To make your own, click on the photo to take you to the instructions.
We read the story- Love Bug and I read it so many times this week, she could almost say it herself.
We practiced keeping the beat ...."Chick chicka BOOM BOOM"
We matched upper and lowercase letters- I saw this idea somewhere on the web, but the person who posted it didn't have a link. In the amount of time I spend looking for it, I could have made my own! Finally found it though, and HERE it is. :)
We hunted for letters
Then each tot said the letters they found as they put it into the pot to make "alphabet soup"
We made our own coconut tree snacks
Learned about coconuts- the tots liked shaking it to hear the coconut milk.
We took a road trip with some Tot School friends to a fantastic children's museum. It was A LOT of fun!
It started in the wee hours of the morning and ended after bedtime. A lot of driving for a day trip, but oh so worth it. Love Bug's brother and sister came along too.
Love Bug is a shopper. No really---she LOVES to shop. When we have a lot of stores to go to, she's a super trooper. She complains if we only go to one store on our outings. "Don't we need to go to Target? Or Michael's? I don't want to *just* go to the grocery store!" And she doesn't ask me to buy things for her (?).
This Awesome play store was the favorite stop of the whole trip. We spent a collective 1.25 hours in it.
There was also a little hospital area in it. The kids could be doctors or patients, use dolls as patients. It was pretty cool.
