Tot School 4 1/2
The boys learned to set the table. Their future wives will thank me. I taught them how to set the table. Next, we took turns making a mess of our mock table and then correctly placing the dinnerware in its designated spot.
Mr. Smackdown has delighted in showing off his newly acquired skill of setting the table. I wonder how long it will be “fun” and not a chore? It is amazing how little helpful hands by growing children can become tremendous time-savers. When can he start cleaning the bathrooms and vacuuming?
As if we didn’t already know the letter “A,” we made “A’s” with rubber bands on our geoboards, along with other designs to improve fine motor skills, which is necessary if your hand gets slapped by a taught rubber band!
Childhood just wouldn’t be complete without using Ed Emberley’s Thumbprint Art guidebook.
And to wrap it up, today we confiscated Mr. Smiley’s bath time alphabet toys and put the letters in alphabetical order.
(Can you tell which letter is missing?)
We had some leftover numbers, and used our Connectagons and corresponded the correct number of pieces below each foam number.
After all that fun . . . I stopped at the library so that we could begin learning about the letter “B.” The ants will have to move into our home under a different letter whether they like it or not.
