Shapes - Pentagon Week

Shape Themes
Xander is 20 Months
Theme:  Traffic Signs
Shape: Octagon

 We are currently working on shapes, devoting one week to each while also reviewing those already learned.   The themes just add a fun element to the shapes lessons, plus some extra vocabulary. I added a page to gather all of the Shape Posts and Printables to make them easier to find.  For our overall Tot School goals for our shape units, see my Goals post.

So much for being back to a normal schedule; it definitely didn't last long!  Xander has had ear troubles since he was small and this week was a rough ear week for us.  We had a HORRIBLE visit to the ENT  that had us both in tears (although his was more like shaking, thrashing screams than tears) and we have to go back in a couple of weeks.  He lost a tube, has a plugged non functioning tube that we're trying to save, and he has fluid behind each ear drum. He didn't sleep well and basically just wasn't himself.  Needless to say, some days he just wasn't in the mood for Tot School, so we just skipped it those days.  That's why there are so few pictures.  Luckily, he seems to be feeling better now, so hopefully we will have better news next appointment.

This week's shape was pentagon and it was our second week using the Traffic Sign Theme.    Traffic Sign Printables.

 We used our shape cards.  We also used some pocket chart phrases from our Pentagon Printables.

A tracing page he did NOT want to do this week.
 Excited about coloring downstairs (his desk is temporarily moved)

We still "played" with his cards from the Traffic Sign Printables.

We used Little Reader quite a bit.  It seems even when he isn't feeling well, he just can't get enough of looking at the words, although he gets picky about which words he wants to see.

We also did a lot of space themed work box activities.  I will post those on Wednesday under the new tag of  Brain Building Boxes!  I also started a linky for tot trays, boxes, busy bags, etc. that I am hoping to do every Wednesday so please link up!.

If you don't already, I would appreciate it if you would take the time to Like Me on Facebook and Follow Me on Twitter!  Thank you!
