Tot School: Week 7

Breck is 42.5 months
Rowan is 18 months


Fine Motor Skills
Fun with Beads
While Breck was at preschool, Rowan and I spent some time playing with beads.
She strung them onto pipe cleaners, put them through the holes of our foam peg boards and dumped them back and forth in film canisters. The film canisters were a huge hit! She dumped those for probably 20 minutes straight!

Arts & Crafts
Rowan colored - her face, hands, shirt, and the top of a rubber stamp.
(thank goodness it's washable!)

Breck and I worked on "gingerbread" houses.

Reading & Letters
Rowan worked on Name-Letter Matching. I told her what the letters are and where they belong to spell her name and she placed the letter caps on the correct spot.

Breck works on letters a lot at preschool and he's shown some big improvements in identifying them, so we don't focus on them too at much home...instead we casually talk about them in daily conversation, such as when Breck sees the letter B, he says "B is for Breck!" and I'll quiz him here and there during the day.

Although, we did work on writing the letter G.

Following Directions
I found some printable/customizable Bingo cards and, well, we played Bingo!
(we used the 3x3 size since I wasn't sure how into this Breck would be)


  1. Wow, that is awesome that Rowan was able to match the right letters for her name at only 18M!! Good for her! And apparently your doing an excellent job mommy :)

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment!

    I hope you are having a great Monday :)
    xo, KA

  3. She is adorable!!! And I must say you are quite the Mommy!

  4. Looks like a great week! I love the film canister dumping! Its always the simple things in life that is so entertaining to them!

  5. Sounds like a great week! I was also impressed with Rowan's matching abilities. And I love the film cannister activities...such a thing an 18 month old would love, it brings back memories of when my bigger guy was that age!

  6. Wow! Great matching abilities for such a little squirt :) I just printed off some Bingo cards earlier today from that same site! (Christmas themed--my boys LOVE Bingo!)


  7. Way to go Rowan!! That is great that she is matching up already! Whoo hoo!! Glad y'all had a good week.


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
