We’ve been fitting in Tot School wherever we can this summer. We haven’t done much formally and I often didn’t have a camera available to get cute shots of the Bubba!
I gave Alex his share of dough when we made our salt maps. He loved doing this!
He’s often working alongside his sisters.
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/2 cup water
- food coloring (optional)
Homemade play dough is great. I really can’t stand the smell of the name brand store bought stuff. I often make ours yummy-scented and use really neat colors. I store them in bags in the fridge and they keep forever.
Alex likes to help with chores. He likes to use the spray mop. I guess he needed that stool for leverage or something. Maybe he’s got a little Captain in him.
He really loves mopping! But I had to dry the floor with a towel when he was “done”.
Coloring his “Rose Window” for history. We studied medieval cathedrals. I love it when he participates with his sisters. He’s getting to be such a big boy!
He really loves the early readers on the iPad. Alex knows all the colors of the rainbow!
I found this great little fishy tray on clearance at Walmart and knew I had to have it. We used it to sort Goldfish crackers by color, of course.
Alex is saying, “I did it!” and is really just excited that he gets to eat them now.
Alex does love “his” iPad. He has really learned so much from the apps in the last year. He loves Preschool Adventure lately. His favorite is the arcade, especially the rocket letter game where he gets to blast the robots. I am impressed that he can identify and differentiate the uppercase and lowercase letters. The sounds remind me of the Cybermen in Doctor Who. creepy!
Alex got a cute big boy haircut at JCP. They’re free for kids all of August!
Some of my favorite shots. Alex started gymnastics with his sisters (different classes). He got some slick sunglasses in a kids’ meal from Arby’s. He loves feeding the ducks. And his darling spiky new big boy haircut. He was so thrilled to get a sucker.
