Well, I finally found my card reader, so as promised, here are a few pictures from our first week back in school. Actually, these pictures focus more on Lucy and her very first week of Tot School.
Our theme for the week is ponds. We started with this because Ty’s arithmetic curriculum is centered on a particular theme every six weeks, and the first one is ponds. For Lucy, I also chose to focus on the letter L and the color green.
Here’s Lucy first experience with her new Do-a-Dot paints. I must admit I put off getting out the paints because I was a bit nervous about a two-year-old and anything with the word “paint” on it.
But my worry was all for naught. Lucy loved the paint, and so did I! And so did Ty!
Lucy did so great with the paint. In the photo above, she was dotting the L’s on the leaf. I demonstrated the first one for her, and she picked right up on the concept and dotted all the rest lickety split.
Then she got a little carried away and just kept on dotting and dotting, which was totally fine. She was having a blast.
Next I got out the letter L tracing sheets, and Ty demonstrated the correct strokes to make. I love that he was playing the role of teacher.
To my surprise, Lucy actually listened to her big brother and followed his directions, “Down and across.”
An action shot. She was dotting so fast!
So proud of her paper. She had found all the leaves on the letter L’s.
I had put this t-shirt of Ty’s on Lucy to protect her clothes from would be painting mishaps. But I’m happy to report there were none.
Isn’t this the sweetest picture? A little deceiving though.
I’ll try to get pictures of some other Tot School activities. I also want to show y’all our new classroom and some of Ty’s work. He’s doing so well! We’re off to a great start. Ty even used the words “school” and “fun” in the same sentence the other day. Wow! And he’s even taken to affectionately calling me, “School Mom.” Ha.
