Tot School- b is for bug (and birthday!)


Tot School
Jonathan is 31 Months


This will be an short post this week because we've been busy this weekend celebrating a birthday:

Grace is 1!!!!

It's hard to believe a year has flown by already! She's cruising the furniture and trying to talk and she's such a little lady! We'll be down in central Illinois this week visiting family and checking out the state fair!

But if you want to see what we've been up to this week, check out these posts:

Sensory Bin: 


Our bug sensory bin was a huge hit this week:



We practiced spooning and pouring the grassy green rice. Jonathan had fun matching the bugs up to some insect flashcards I found in the Target $1 Spot. We also used some Montessori printables that Carisa designed.

Books 


We read several great books this week. Jonathan's favorite was The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle. He loved this so much we checked out a few more of Carle's buggy books. They were a big hit!

Games 


We had gorgeous weather this week so we went on a "bug safari". I hid ten of his bugs in the grass outside and Jonathan and his friend T. hunted for them. We used our Sunny Patch magnifying glass to explore and attempt to identify the real bugs we found outside as well.


Bible 


We talked about Joseph this week. Look for a summary post soon!

Happy Birthday Grace! :) Birthdays for my littles are always bittersweet for me. They grow up WAY too quick.

The sensory bin looks like a lot of fun!
