For Tot School, we're following a letter of the week format. I'm not quizzing or drilling anything in to Eli, just simply introducing letters and having fun around that letter during the week.
We've been lucky with the themes I chose to go with: they've suited everyone for three weeks now!
This week, we went with "camping" (and caterpillars) as our theme. Homeschool Creations and 2 Teaching Mommies had some FANTASTIC camping preschool packs that I split between Eli and Turner. We had other things to do this week, so today was the only day we did our camping theme. I had intended for it to be week-long fun, but why drag it out when you can cram it in to one day?

|We were supposed to go on a hike with our canteens and backpacks but as I looked at the forecast last night and realized we were in a monsoon all day I quickly thought of activities to do inside. I remembered a game I made up a few months ago and wondered if we could go fishing in the bath tub.|
Meet the Dubiens was, again, the inspiration behind our "Fun Food Friday." The kids LOVED last week's lunch even though I thought it was a total fail. They talked about it all week so it was a no-brainer wether I'd do it again!
