Train Colors

Bo really likes trains and it showed through in his coloring this week! He put a lot of effort into coloring each train. 

"Choo choo!"

Shadow Matching

Transportation Theme 

and playing ABC Go.

Train Shape Pattern Blocks

Transportation Theme Puzzles (with help) that I found at either Ross or TJ Max for half price (Melissa & Doug Deluxe Vehicles in a Box Jigsaw Puzzles)

I love this puzzle set because it is wooden, durable and stores in the box neatly. I passed up several puzzles that I liked simply because they would be harder to store.

Melissa & Doug Wooden Vehicle Magnets

I picked up the Thomas the Train at TJ Max - he loved it.

At the end of our tot time today, while Bo was playing happily, I got Elli and Mali started on coloring a project for History.

Bo pulls out his Tot Notebook (a collection of all of his tot school printables) and looks through it occasionally. Often, he will find a page that he didn't complete (as well as he does now) and will want to finish it. Today, he noticed that he did not trace the lines on the bus sheet. Well, that's because I added black dots and had him poke it with a giant thumb tack. When I explained this, he seemed satisfied and didn't insist on pulling it out to work on it. 

ABC Find It! Letter Tt

I was feeling a little lazy and didn't have a sensory box planned and didn't hide them either - I just laid them on the table for him to match. Well, he did it himself! He went and hid them where I usually do (in the bookshelf) and then found most of them.

Tt is for Train

Bo has always painted with a capital T, but this time, he did not want to paint the lowercase t with a capital T! I told him I didn't have a lower case t, and he said, "Uh huh!" and went and grabbed a cookie cutter to make his own t!

Making a Train with the Crayons

I found these at TJ Max (Melissa & Doug Triangle crayons) and I love them. The case is hard to open - which means I have to open them and we haven't lost any of them yet! We've only broken one that got stepped on, otherwise they seem durable, too.  And they do not ROLL!

What Starts with Tt? 

Tracing the Tt

Left to Right Tracing

More Transportation

Bo matched up some of his magnets to the printable, but not all matched, so I pulled out the cookie trays so he could just play with them.

(He thinks one is missing.) 

Counting Bears

This is the first time I have had Bo match up the counting bears to the cards (numbers 1-5). Then he played with them as he usually does.  (I'm trying to get better about including some of the other things Bo does besides the printables).

Speech Therapy

Bo started attending a play group at the Center with other children who are in speech therapy.  

He did great, but wanted me close by at all times.  They played dollies and kitchen, did puzzles, colored a fish for art, read a fish book, had a snack, and played in the gross motor room.  

We finished letter Uu this past week and Bo had dental surgery. It was both an emotional and eye opening week for me and a miracle in progress, but I'll share more on that next week. :)
