This week at Tot School, we played with the
Magnetic Mighty Mind Set. This set starts at a very simple "shape matching" level and goes up to a level that puts my 7 year old to the test.
We made a shapes angel. We did this as a little lesson on shapes, but also to celebrate the Feast of the Guardian Angels.
We used these cards to match upper and lower case letters. These are so cute and fun because they also make a picture, when matched up correctly.
The weather has been so nice lately. We love to be outside in the cool Autumn air. And Evan loves to play with his sisters on the swingset!
I really wish I could remember where I found this idea. I think it was
at Childcareland. I don't have time right now to weed through the immense amount of wonderful printables and videos that are at her sight. But once you check out childcareland.com, I don't think you'll mind looking all through the many, many fun ideas she has. You print out the template for the strips onto cardstock. Then fill in each square with a circle sticky in different patterns. Next, you provide your child with colored clothespins that match the circles. This activity really works the little muscles in their hands.
Next it was.......Apple Time! Evan made a paper bag apple. He loves to paint, so this was really fun for him.
He used those shapes again to make apple patterns with me.
We also read some apple books and I'm still trying to get us to the orchard for some real apple picking. Maybe this week.
