Letter F Tot School

Henry is 36 months.

I'm a couple weeks behind blogging about this, but two weeks ago we did the letter F again. I thought Henry would really like it because he has been super into farms lately. But, it was his birthday week and then we all got super sick. So, other than co-op, tot school sort of went to the sidelines that week. I still think we had some good work, so I'll share! And co-op was fun that week.

On our first tray was the color matching flower work that I used in our spring unit last year. It was a set of felt flowers, corresponding button stems, and a corresponding color sheet. Henry still loved this tray this year and had a bunch of fun again matching the colors. He was much better this year at getting the flowers around the buttons.


The second tray was a set of 3-part farm cards with different farm animals. I paired the cards with our set of Schleicht animals. Henry still struggles with matching the words on his own but enjoys matching the cards and animals.


The third tray was a set of cards which asked the kids to match the correct word with the picture. They had a picture of the word and its name spelled correctly. Then, they had three choices -- two of which were close but wrong. Then, the tray included small beads to place on the correct word. This was a big hit with the co-op kids and provided a good challenge. Henry wasn't very good at finding the correct word, but liked trying.



Other things we did included:

Block puzzle -- we used this last time too. Henry still struggled with it, but enjoyed it a lot more than last time we used it.


Feelings Cards -- I cut and laminated a bunch of baby/young child pictures from magazines with different happy/sad/surprised faces. The kids could then sort them into their respective feelings.



Magnet Board -- Complete with a set of wooden farm magnets. Everyone enjoyed making their own farm.

  2. What great ideas! I really loved the idea of laying the beads onto the correctly spelled word (pinned it), but my son is still too young for it. I came across you blog last night while looking for some ideas for montessori spaces, and really love what I've seen! We've recently started tot school (about a month ago now), and I'm still struggling with organisation/ideas, etc, but we're starting to really find a nice rhythm and I will be trying to incorporate a lot more montessori inspired activities into our routine more generally. Soooo thank you for all of the inspiration :)
