Tot School Green Week

     We recently wrapped out our green week of our color themes.  As with the boys, my goal is not for her to learn her colors. You can see my tot school goals here.

Juniper was 17 months
Juniper's little area on our wall. I put up her color poster was free from Isla Hearts Teaching on TPT. I put out some green themed books and sight words for her. She liked the sight words books better than the color books this week.
I tried to give her a chance to use different media for her little coloring book pages (free here). She used markers and paint this week.
I also let her explore with the paint a couple of brushes. She painted her hand and then was very concerned about it being messy.
I'm introducing her to Montessori 3 Part Vocabulary Cards with some color cards. She's not ready to do them independently, but I'm modeling for her and eventually she'll get it. She does like trying to help put the word card on the picture. Sometimes she does it correctly, sometimes she doesn't, and sometimes she knocks all the cards on the floor. She's slowly been getting better, though.
Lots and lots of play dough this week. We used both dark green and light green, since I already had them. She used rollers, character body parts and stampers.
Green stickers.
Various green things on the light table.
Bug puzzle
Sound block puzzle she wanted to do.
Green sensory bin with lots of different pastas and rice.

  1. I love the thing she’s sitting in for the sensory bin. What is it? I would love something to help contain the mess!!

    1. It is a messy play mat from Amazon. I wish I would have had one for my older kids too! https://amzn.to/47CVSfm (aff link)
