Tot School - Red

Our intentional Tot School time has been few and far between. We play, read and color a lot, but I haven't spent a lot of time preparing any specific activities for Tot School.

This week has been different (so far).
coloring a Kangaroo with a red crayon (Lucy's letter this week is 'K'
this week so Daphne wanted in on the action)
building with Lucy
throwing red balls into a bucket

sorting red objects - sparkly hearts, red counting bears, red unifix cubes
Daphne's first collage - attaching red items to contact paper! She worked and worked on this!!

Daphne is constantly trying to name colors but can't identify any yet (totally normal, I know) so I thought doing a week of a specific color would give her an introduction to each color. Right now, almost everything is pink - imagine that! This week is RED! She still called everything pink - but I overemphasized that the objects were all red!
