Tot-school | Week 24 | Letter YApril 9, 2017

This past week’s tot-school
…was deliberately sparse

After a weeks pause we got back to tot-school light this week. We were childminding an extra little one every morning so rather than focus on just the letter we did morning activities and then I added in a letter Y activity if the afternoon allowed. With 2 little boys to entertain having a hands on activity most days set up was a real treat. Our walls became adorned with their artwork and I’m already stockpiling ideas for the week after next when we do it again.

Letter Y was a trial though. I found it difficult to get excited about and most of the ‘usual’ words just didn’t seem to work. While I made up the set for yogurt and yo-yo I failed to find a yo-yo for us to play with so none of that material got used. Yacht – he calls it a boat, Yellow – not an object, Yam – it’s called a sweet potato, Yarn – that’s called wool, Yak – really, he’d not have a clue! I drew a large Y n the floor on Monday and he immediately identified it correctly, I concluded sometimes we try too hard.

The pack I’ve made is available for download at the end of the post.

This weeks read more questions:

It was lovely to do so many hands on activities with another child

I’d hoped to do yogurt painting but with so many messy things each moring I couldn’t face it in the afternoons

I’ve chosen not to include pictures of the other little boy, it’s not my place to make the decision for his parents and even if it limits my pictures I’d feel unsure without express permission for each and every photo.

Unhappy with the letter tracing sheets I decided the kick off the letter Y by doing a yellow colour hunt. Out came the masking tape and soon we were happily adding all sorts of toys into our letter shape. This continued long after the photo’s were taken and I left the letter on the floor all week as a reminded with the items he’d gathered in a basket.

Wednesday morning we broke out the play dough that I’d made in Yellow this time. We practised all sort of mark making, stamping, cutting, rolling and I even tried drawing the letter ‘Y’ for Adam but he wasn’t that interested.

Today our morning activity was the paint stampers and the boys did amazingly each completing over 10 sheets. I made sure I gave Adam the Y for yogurt one which is filled with his favourite stamper – black… oh well, kids don’t always choose the best things for photo’s!
