Tot School- The Farm

Lil’man is 33 months. 
 
This week we focused on learning all about the farm.   Here are just some of the things we did. You can see other activities from this unit by visiting Amber at The Belly of The Whale.
 
Language Arts: Lil’man worked on spelling farm words this week by matching letter tilesAffliation Link to the letters in the various words.  
            
 
Here are some of the books we read this week.

Math Concepts: We worked on number concepts with two different activities this week.  The first activity that we did was "How Many Spots?".  Lil’man would flip over a number card and add that many pom poms to the cow.  This was way to easy for him, so to make it more of a challenge I added tweezers.  He wasn’t very excited about that at all. 
  
He also played Roll a Barn, which we found on Play To Learn Printables.  I really like these Roll & Build activities.  I may have to create some of my own.
 
 
Science/Social Studies Concepts: We learned all about the farm and even touched on what products we get from certain animals, such as milk from a cow and eggs from chickens.  We did the Farm Tot Pack that Carisa and I created last year.  Lil’man was definitely more into it this year than last.

He also enjoyed a couple of Sesame Street playlists.   His favorite was the Toddler: Old Macdonald game.

For Fun: My favorite shot from the week was him on his John Deer tractor.  I like it because it reminds me of how much fun he was having playing the farmer.

So, there you go, that was our week.  Don’t forget, you can download all the printables  (not all seen here) for FREE  at 2 Teaching Mommies.

Next Week we will be focusing on Community Helpers- Mailman, Garbage Man and Grocer! I hope you stop by to check it out!

Most importantly, don’t miss out on what others are doing at 1+1+1=1!

  5. There was a cute idea about milking cows. You use rubber gloves and poke a little hole in the finger tips. Fill it with milk and have your child practice milking a cow.

  10. The roll and build activity looks really neat; thanks for the link!

    For our farm theme a couple weeks ago (my tot is only 15 months), we added circle stickers to a cow template. I'm definitely jotting down your cow spot activity for when we re-do our farm theme next year!
