T is for Tools

This week we focused on the letter T with a theme of tools.  It worked very well since my husband worked on a building project this weekend causing us to spend a decent time at Loewe's.  Patrick really enjoyed some of the hands on activities we did this week.  For more Tot School ideas check out the gathering at 1+1+1=1.
We used parts from the letter H for hammer tot school printables from 1+1+1=1.  Even though we were working on T not H it still had lots of nice additions.  Patrick is getting pretty awesome with his colors.  He did the coloring hammers page with almost no assistance.

We used wiki sticks to spell out PAT.  He had trouble doing the letters besides T.

Absolutely his favorite activity was hammering golf tees into Styrofoam.  He did this activity again and again pretty much every day during the week. 

We used screws to work on some fine motor skills with loosening and tightening them.

We built things with play doh then identified their beginning sound.  Here Patrick is making and cutting up his pizza, which he correctly identified started with the letter P.  He still struggles with isolating the beginning sound without help but is getting better at it.

We got some big deliveries recently and had two large boxes so the children colored in them. 

We got out the yellow sensory bin again. 
We also got out some magnets and Patrick went around finding objects that were magnetic.  He really enjoyed this activity but I didn't have a chance to grab my camera and take a picture.
