Tillery Tot School- Letter W

This week we learned about the letter "W." Some weeks are easier than others when coming up with ideas for Tot School. This week was definitely one of the easier ones.
 This week's Tot School board:
We stamped w's onto our letters this week. 
 We read Peter Spit a Seed at Sue by Jackie French Koller and then we made our own watermelon. (Sidenote: Jackie French Koller won the 2010 Kentucky Bluegrass Award. I got to meet her when she accepted her award at the KBA Luncheon at the Kentucky Reading Association Conference. This is an autographed copy of her book.)
After reading about watermelons, we had to eat some too.
One day we hunted for walnuts in our backyard. We found quite a few.
 One day we played with our makeshift water table.
 Seth also loves getting water out of our rain barrel
 (which we got for free from the Community Farmer's Market).
 One evening we packed a picnic and had dinner by the Circus Square fountains. While Seth is perfectly content just watching the water, we couldn't leave without playing in the water for a little bit.
 We made a whale using construction paper...
 and one using a plastic cup and some foam.
 We made a wheelbarrow using a laundry detergent scoop and some foam.
 Of course, we had to play in the water. 
This was Silas' first time in a kiddie pool and he loved it!
 We had waffles for breakfast. I found this recipe for Salt and Pepper Paleo waffles
I have tried several different waffle recipes and this one is probably my favorite.
 We made a windmill. 
Unfortunately I couldn't find my box of brass fasteners, so we just had to glue the blades to the windmill instead of allowing them to spin.
At the end of the week, we made a walrus. 
 We didn't get to the worm activities I had planned, but I'm sure we'll get around to them eventually. Next week we move on to Letter "X."
