S for Sea Lion

We are currently working on our Mommy and Me ABC units.  This week we did the letter S and Sea Lions.  Unless otherwise specified, all of the printables are from my Mommy and Me ABC Printables, which are free as we complete them (for a detailed list of all the materials in the printables, check out this post).

 This was his desk setup. On the left is his magnetic calendar.  His white board had some alphabet magnets, and his fridge phonics set.  The shelf had some Ss, and some toy sea lions.
  R and Rhino Puzzles
We did both printable and store bought puzzles.
Letter Clipping

Sea Lion Bottle Cap Page
Using our bottle cap letters on the sea lion page.

 Letter Maze
He liked his letter maze so much this week that he had me print another one for him to do.  He used a Do-A-Dot marker and had him mark all of the Ss to make a path from the baby to the mommy.  When he was all done he used his finger to trace the path.

Sea Lion Number Match
We matched number tiles to the cards with the correct number of sea lions.  This was the first week I gave him all the cards at once.
Peg Letter S
Making towers on his peg letter.
He stamped some uppercase and lowercase Rs with our see through stamps.  We also used a "sea lion" (I think the stamp is supposed to be seal) from Oriental Trading.
   Building Letters
We built some Ss using Handwriting Without Tears pieces.
I used the letter lacing page from my printables to have him paint some Ss.  He thought it was too bright, so he needed to paint in his sunglasses.
Coloring a sea lion with some twistable crayons.
Sea Lion Cutting
Using his training scissors to cut apart the sea lions.

Baby Sea Life Matching
We used the 3 part cards and our Baby Sea Life Toob for some matching.  I was happy that Xander could still read all of the words without any mistakes.

REAL Sea Lion
We visited a friend in chicago last weekend, so were able to see a real sea lion at the zoo!  Sorry for the bad pic, I only had my phone.
Other Tot School Activities
 He did some pattern matching with learning links and the pattern cards from Child Care Land.  I love that this is good for fine motor as well as pattern recognition!
 Dry Erase Maze (post about them here)
 The floor puzzle this week was a Melissa and Doug circular farm puzzle.  I liked that all the base pieces were interchangeable.  He liked going around and reading the words to know which animal went where.
