Wow! It seems like forever since I got the chance to sit down and write an actual post!
We’ve been home for just over 2 weeks now and things are going pretty well. Miss Skylar is still trying to figure out the difference between night and day and unfortunately, we found out the hard way the she is following in her brother’s footsteps as far as his milk allergy goes. But, it seems as though things are finally starting to settle down and getting back into our daily routine in is the near future! (Can we say Hallelujah!)
So, while the littles are sleeping (yes, both at the same time!) I figured, why not visit the ol’ blog and get us back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Last week’s Tot School was a little more laid back and we didn’t try to do nearly as much as we normally do since we were still settling in but the little that we were able to accomplish helped keep Nicholas on a somewhat consistent schedule and, in my opinion anyway, made the transition from only child to big brother a lot smoother.
We started out the week by reading If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
We talked all about the mouse in the story before making a letter M mouse of our own.
We kept the theme going and read If You Give a Moose a Muffin and spent the afternoon making muffins for snack!
We filled our sensory bin with different sizes of marshmallows and Nicholas played for hours. (Most of the marshmallows however, either ended up covering the floor or in his tummy but he really seemed to enjoy this one!)
To get those creative juices flowin’, we make an M with tape on a piece of paper and painted over it before removing the tape.
And finally, we practiced our fine motor skills using safety scissors for the first time!
Obviously, we’re still getting the hang of that one.
And all throughout the week, we used our Letter of the Week Letter M poster to name a few things that start with the letter M.
