Tillery Tot School- Letter C

This week we learned about the letter "C"!
We did lots of fun stuff!
Here's a look at our Tot Board:
Like always we decorated our big "C" and our little "c" as they were called all week.
We just used lots of colors this week to decorate them.
We made a clown using a small paper plate and some pom poms.
We made a letter "C" crab.
Using a glass cup, we filled it with water and then put shaving cream on top. We talked about clouds and how they were made by God and that they were in the sky. Then we talked about rain coming from the clouds. That is when I added the blue food coloring on top of the shaving cream. After a few seconds we were able to watch it "rain" from the "clouds." It really was neat!
We also glued some clouds made out of cotton balls on a blue piece of paper.
We played with some foam cookies I made a couple of months ago.
We made some real chocolate chip cookies.
Seth was so anxious to dig into them!
We played with construction stickers...
and a little magnet construction set borrowed from my mom.
We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar lots of times this week.
Then we made a caterpillar out of an egg carton.
We painted it green and made the head red just like in the book.
We also made a caterpillar using our bingo markers.
We made a cow using paper plates and construction paper.
We decorated a piece of paper with foam cars.
We practiced counting with our Usborne Counting Flap book...
and with this matching number game I made. It's just a box with 12 slits cut in it. The slits are big enough for a large craft stick to fit in it. I found these wooden craft sticks at Mighty Dollar a while back that had a circle at the top of them. I wasn't sure what to do with them, but they worked perfectly for this game. I just added some foam number stickers to each circle.
I would take out all the sticks and Seth had to match the number on the stick to the number written below each slit on the box. We still need a little more practice to get them all correct, but he did very well with most numbers.
So we had a lot of fun this week!
Next week we are moving on to the letter "D"!
