 We played with or Motor Works toys from Discovery Toys.
 I got these wooden lions to color at Michael's Clearance rack.

Pumpkin Decorating

Last week we decorated small pumpkins.  I got the awesome idea from Elle Belle's Bows website.  She decorated her own pumpkins so pretty.  So I let the kids have a try, and they loved it.  You can tell by their pure concentration.

Go by her site and check out what a wonderful job she did decorating her pumpkins.

Tot School

Hannah is currently 27 1/2 months.

For this week Caden's curriculum lesson is on, Hannah is incorporated in the theme on her level:
  • Transportation
  • Letter P and Q
  • Color purple and orange
  • Number recognition 1-3
  • Daniel and the Lion's Den
  So I still kept the theme of Caden's lessons but tone down Hannah's.
I showed Hannah our letter of the Week and then had her push the Alphabet song and the letter Q to see what sound it makes.

We counted the dots on the choo choo train and then put that amount of marshmallows above the smoke stack.
Then she wanted to put the marshmallows on the dots.
I read the story Daniel and the Lion's Den from our book 100 Bible Stories and 100 Bible Songs.
Then I printed out this lion and had her put pasta noodles around the lions face for his mane.  I got this from Danielle's Place.
Then I  made her a pumpkin with 3 triangles on it and had her glue them in the correct spot. 
Then she glued the pattern on the pattern.  So basically she did matching.   I got this from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

 Peg Play Activity Set we talked about colors and counting.
 Stacking blocks counting and colors.
 She still enjoyed putting buttons into the can and naming the colors.
 Gluing orange buttons on the letter p.
 Dot paint letter Q with the color purple.
 Gluing pom poms on the letter Q.

 This is our bulletin board I made so the kids can keep up with what we are doing during the week.

Caden is currently 46 months old

  • Transportation
  • Letter P and Q
  • Color purple and orange
  • Number recognition 1-3
  • Daniel and the Lion's Den 

 Buses and other Transportation:
We were talking about buses so I pulled our our Mini Motor Counters.  I asked a few questions:
  1. I pulled out the car and the bus and asked, "Which vehicle holds more people?"  
  2. Then pulled out the boat and train and asked, "Which one drives on water?"
  3. Then pulled out the helicopter and airplane and asked, "Which one holds more people?"

 Listening: We pretended we were on a bus and circled around the bus and when the music stopped (The Wheels on the bus) we had to find a seat on the bus.
 Prereading: I randomly put the letters from A-P out on the floor and I had Caden put them in alphabetical order.

He decided to use something other than his hands.
Hannah was using her feet.
 Yeah, he did it with more help towards the end...he was getting tired of this game.

 Math number recognition:  I had him count the number of dots on the train and put the correct number of marshmallows.
 Not sure why he held up five fingers.
 Bible Lesson:  I read the story Daniel and the Lion's Den and had them color a lion and glue pasta noodles around his head for his mane.

 On our shelf I added some transportation puzzles.  I put out the Melissa and Doug contruction puzzle  and a Fall Puzzle.
 Caden woke up from his nap and saw me and Hannah doing her Mommy School and wanted to join in on reviewing the letter P with dot paint.
 Here is the board I have up each week.   I thought I have talked about it before but could not find it.  I took it down for a while because of the house being on the market but decided I would put it back up.
