F is for Feet, Fish and Frog! And fun, and friend, and food, and the numbers four and five... You get the picture!
After the not so awesome week (actually it turned into two weeks that were not so awesome, but I'll spare you the details) following Valentine's Day, I feel like we're really getting back on track with Tot School! Whenever I really start to put a great effort into it, I can see the good it's doing in Miss E's little life. I've mentioned before that she's a bit like her mommy in the Type A department. She really thrives when we have organized activities, and she just loves to learn!
|Our table set up as Miss E would see it on Monday morning.|
Here's a recap of our week on F! I usually try to stick with one central theme, but this week, there were just too many fun words beginning with our letter. Initially I was a bit worried, because for the first 2-3 days, Miss E was convinced that letters E and F are the same. So sure, in fact, that she would correct my apparent error on a regular basis. My precocious little girl. Shouldn't be surprised.
Using our fun printables, we completed all sorts of school activities...
|Completing a 'feet' picture puzzle. I love the look of determination on her face.|
|Tracing really is one of her favorite activities. She's really starting to get the hang of it, too!|
|She also loves do-a-dots. This day was when it started to click that E and F are different letters.|
"That's an 'F' for 'foot,' mommy!"
I also love to get inspired from pinterest... I found this great idea, and it morphed into several activities. Miss E loves all things painting, so it was a huge hit.
|Painting blue water|
|Miss E used her hand, then counted her five fish!|
Her favorite part was putting the googly eyes on the fish.
|Miss E wanted to make more fish! First, with her hand...|
|And then with her feet!|
|She was so proud of herself. It was all her idea; I wanted to make sure she|
knew what a big deal that was.
|Our final product!|
And of course, we couldn't resist dancing a bit. Her favorites this week were (for the love of the theme), Five Green and Speckled Frogs, and Let's Go Fishing!

What a great Tot School week! The success of this week, paired with our healed home, gets me even more excited for next week's letter, G!
Until next time!
