Tot School with Bo {Letter Ii}

9/10/2013
This is letter Ii from the month of May and I am playing catch up! 


Letter: Ii
Object: Igloo
Theme: Cold Weather Fun

~Bo is 29 months~

See 1+1+1=1's Tot School Printables for the printables for this unit. 

First of all, up to this point I have been laminating everything that was reusable. To make things easier on me and cut cost, I am only laminating the essentials - the lacing cards and the Find It cards. I printed the rest of the letters from the Tot School Printables and put them in a binder so they are all ready to go! 


So when Bo asked to do tot school one day, I gave him some strips of paper to practice cutting while I quickly grabbed a new letter packet and got it ready for him.  (Bo's interest in the printables is waning at this point - perhaps because of the nice weather.)

Cutting Practice


His dollar store scissors (with the spring lever) broke, so he is using regular scissors. He's getting it! (But I did buy him a new pair this summer because they are so much easier to use.) 


Dot Paint and Dot Sticker the Igloos & Ii's



Left to Right Tracing


This next idea comes from a book (that I am featured in!) called Alphabet Adventures - A to Z Activities, Crafts, & Recipes by Meagan Meuli.


Alphabet Adventures has a bunch of ABC ideas and inspiration and is perfect if you are doing a letter of the week and want lots of ideas - which is exactly what I needed for our Alphabet Fun series!  I am featured on page 95 - Letter Y Craft, and the idea is from my Y is for Yellow, Yarn and Yo-Yo post. So fun to see my idea in a book! :)



Icing Igloos

The instructions on page 75 call for a paper or foam cup, white icing and mini marshmallows, but we used waffle bowls so that ours would be edible.  I helped Bo ice the bowl with marshmallow creme and then he stuck kosher marshmallows on top to make his igloo.

And on the last day with Letter Ii, he pulled out his Letter Ii basket to play - and proudly hung his work each day. :) 


So love these moments with Bo.♥ 

Did you notice the black lanyard around his neck? It is a keychain. Bo is obsessed with keys these days. Hence, the letter Kk is up next!

And I have several posts started and even a couple reviews coming up -- which means, I am hoping to get back into regular blogging (maybe once or twice a week?).  We'll see! Until then. . .
