To keep track of what we've done, I'm going to try to post Eli's tot trays in one post each week. Obviously, things change so he might not do some of the trays or we may even add to them.
This might seem like a lot, but they are all totally up to him...and he ALWAYS asks "to do school wook." He will blow through a lot of these quickly, and when he's bored, everyone has to know about it! Whatever someone recommends for tot trays, I double it for Eli!
A busy boy is a happy boy in this case!
Here are the trays for our first week of school. 9.5.11-9.9.11
A is for Astronaut dot-a-dot page I found on Totally Tots.
Capitol A letter craft a la No Time For Flashcards.
Apple cutting practice tray from The Princess and The Tot.
Counting Alligator Teeth from The Princess and the Tot.
Color sorting from The Princess and The Frog.
Astronaut Tot Pack from Homeschool Creations. I'm hoping this keeps Eli's attention while we're at the homeschool co-op.
Lower case a craft from No Time For Flash Cards.
Letter sorting "moon rocks" using a mini grabber. The idea was from a post
on Totally Tots.
I ran across this idea on Pintrest. Instead of making a big coconut tree, I made a tree from construction paper and taped it on a cookie sheet with magnetic letters! Shake the tray at the end of the story and all the letters fall down.
Using dough to being number recognition.
ABC letter box from Spell Out Loud.
More letter sorting, this time from Confessions of a Homeschooler's Letter of the Week series.
Shape matching from Confessions of a Homeschoolers LOTW pack.
Gluing practice with the letter A, also from Confessions of a Homeschooler's LOTW pack.
I think these should keep Eli entertained for a bit!
