Our most recent Tot School snippets spread over about two weeks. I had everything lined up to go and on Monday, Little Sis came down with a bug that didn't go away for quite some time. Bless her heart, she was so tired and whiny I thought my head might explode.
When she did have moments of feeling "okay" (and they were quite brief), I took her downstairs to play and change up the scenery.
Our focus was on the Letter F for feather, fish, flower, frog, & farm....
Tot School Letter F Activities
F is for Flowers
I couldn't find a printable for what I was looking for, so I just made my own. Here Little Sis matched the shape on the flower to the shape on the vase. I haven't really stressed shapes much, and when she looked at the shape, she did well matching... other times she would pick up the flower and just put it somewhere!
F is for Frogs
You can't talk about the Letter F and not talk about frogs!! Little Sis and I labeled the frog parts, made our own 5 Speckled Frogs props and listened to the song on my phone, completed a Do A Dot Frog page with stickers, & worked on lacing!

F is for Firetrucks.
Stamping F's on the fire truck. She wasn't so interested in this one. A lot of those markings were ones I did to try to get her interested!
Letter F Arts and Crafts
Decorated paper plate fish with Do A Dot Markers, painted with feathers, and made "flowers" using paint and the bottom of a pop bottle. I thought the latter craft would turn out better... oh well, the kiddos had fun!
Playing with Playdough
I was trying to have her fill in the F, but pulling it apart and putting it wherever she wanted was more fun : )

F is for Farm
Farm Shadow Matching! I actually cut this activity wrong, according to the directions, but she did a great job with matching up the animals and making their sounds.
Activity from 2 Teaching Mommies On the Farm Unit
Find the frog!
I made up my own matching activity using stickers. I put several stickers of frogs and a few stickers of random animals, and Little Sis was to use her Do A Dot marker to dot all the frogs.
Think of it as an I SPY activity for toddlers!
Letter F Tot School was a full week! We also:
- Created a farm scene with our Melissa & Doug re-usable sticker pads
- Made words with Melissa & Doug See and Spell
- Played with Leap Frog Magnetic Animal Match-- she loved this!
- practiced matching the letters in her name. I wrote her name on a piece of paper and using foam letter stickers, she matched the stickers to the letters!
- made funny faces with Mr. Potato Head!
- explored all things green in her water table-- makes for a great indoor sensory table in the winter time.
As I write this, she is finally on mend! Our healthy little gir is back!!
