Tot School: Letter S

Well here is Letter S — we are already almost done with Letter T, so I will share that soon.  I have so many (too many) ideas for us in Tot School so I am figuring out what we will do when we (finally) finish with Letter Z!  I have been getting back into the swing of things since breaking my arm, but still have to tell myself to take it easy!!


Bible verse of the week:

Does God see my ways and count my every step? Psalm 31:2 

We use the ABC bible verse songs from Songs for Saplings.  These songs are so catchy, beautiful, not “children’s music annoying,” and I find myself singing and learning and memorizing the bible verses along with John.  Carisa at 1plus1plus1equals1 has made coordinating ABC Bible Verses posters which have really helped with his memorization as well.



Letter of the week: Ss

Our curriculum consists of 1plus1plus1equals1‘s Tot School ABC’s.  

We put up our bible verse, an Rr small poster from Tot School, an S sign from my Kindergarten teaching days, and these wonderful Montessori sandpaper letters above John’s table.  We put these up on the wall so he could feel the letter every morning and trace his fingers on the letter.

To the right is our poem for the week from my Free Robert Louis Stevenson Printables, Letter S vocabulary (which was on stars and space which my husband loved!), and his alphabet from the Busy Hands post at 1+1+1=1.


We put a letter collection on our refrigerator too, including our beloved LeapFrog letters.
John loved making an S this week!!  I am not pushing handwriting at all — and when I do it will be easier to harder letters, but he was so thrilled to be making an S!  Check out my post: {Early Literacy Stage 3!}


Here is his work on his clothesline — check out that S!!!



Playing with the amazing Gluten-free edible no-cook playdough recipe from Fun at Home with Kids.  I looooove this stuff!  (But beware, it will mold after a week– doh!)

Our tools are from Melissa & Doug.

And we also made an S is for Snowman on the table with some cute buttons.  Fun at Home with Kids did this on a much grander scale with her Demolish a Snowman!

An easy tray — a pipe cleaner and beads.  Great for fine motor and pincer grasp.  He loved making an S and making a bracelet!

Have a wonderful New Year!
