Tot School Crescent Activities

Archer was 25 Months
We have been working on Shape Themes in Tot School. You can see the Shape Themes "Curriculum" post here. This week was crescent.

This is what Archer's desk area looked like. The shelf included a Non-Fiction Sight Words book, a Meet the Sight Words book, an alphabet book, and a blends reader. I also had some books about the moon and hung up some of his art.
Using stickers for his dot art (Free to print here). 
Using a moon cookie cutter and the letter c dough stamp (similar to these). We also used a design roller and used the highway shape (from Making Learning Fun).
Shape tracing page that we use with dry erase crayons (Free to print here)
We had a coloring page, but did not make it to it. Oops. (Free to print here)
Painting a crescent.
Space sensory bin. I used 8 cups flour and 1 cup baby oil to make the base. Messy, but fun. I added the Space Toob figures.
Playroom shelves include both theme related tot school activities and other toys, usually open ended. The goal is to work on things like fine motor skills, visual spacial skills, math and literacy (and keep him entertained). I have been trying to also include one of our toddler games, to get him more used to playing games with us.

On top, I had Chickyboom. Shelves on the left had shape turtles, castle blocks, a ring stacker (the top went missing during the week) and a shape sorter. Shelves on the right had a wooden rainbow, a Space Toob, Squigz and building cards, three part puzzles, space 3 part cards, perfection and a basket of cards with the highway shape (from Making Learning Fun). 
Playing Chickyboom He did not at all get the concept on the game, but loved the pieces. He did a lot of making ramps and rolling the hay bales down.
Castle Blocks. He does much better when I don't get out the entire set at once.
Wooden Rainbow. They look like crescents, right?? 
Squigz and building cards (free here). He was not actually interested in building. He was more interested in seeing what all he could get them to stick to.
Animal Puzzles
We spent a LOT of time making ramps for his cars (and then remaking them when he played too aggressively).
