This week's Tot School theme was weather. Mother Nature cooperated by giving us a mix of rain, thunder, lightning and sunshine this week!
To study wind, M blew bubbles and played with pinwheels. She was so proud that she could blow the bubbles herself!
We made sun and umbrella puppets, using patterns from our Alphabet Puzzles and More book.
After watching a lightening storm, we painted our own lightning using yellow and white paint on black paper.
We used M's magnetic wooden dolls and took turn dressing them according to the weather. The only one's M really gets are the rain coat and boots, but we still had fun playing with the dolls.
We participated in Open-Ended Art by making clay mosaics.
Mid-week we celebrated J's birthday, and M helped him blow out his candles.
That was all for our weather week in Tot School. This was a pretty light week for us, as I just wasn't up to doing too many activities this week. I had plans to do an Umbrella U for our letter wall, and a counting and sorting activity using paper drink umbrellas, and we may still do those today while the boys are off golfing.
Please be sure you stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what everyone else did in Tot School this week.
