#### Glad you joined me today for more "Adventures" of Greased Lightening. If you have a little toddler at home, I hope that these three little tot school happenings will inspire some creative play in your neck of the woods. First up, was a quick little matching game I had whipped up last week using an assortment of primary-colored paint chip samples and clothes pins. I wanted to make a simple game that both he and Blonde Warrior could play. Obviously, Blonde Warrior...being a year older and having a more structured preschool time...needed something a little more challenging than his younger brother. To play the game, Greased Lightening had to match the paint sample with the corresponding colored clothes pin. When Blonde Warrior played it later that same day, he matched up both the color and the number. Sweetie Pea was kind enough to lend out her piggy bank along with its contents for this next little "to do." While the big kids were busy with their math assignments, Greased Lightening completed his own math "lesson" by putting change in the piggy bank...again and AGAIN! He couldn't get enough of it. Which was fine with me because the fine motor skills necessary to put a coin in a small slot are the same ones needed to learn to write...someday. This made for good practice in coordination and helped to build up his handwriting muscles. Tinker toys are always a tot favorite around here. As I had mentioned a few weeks ago, anytime we have a large assortment of similar toys, I break them down into a smaller pail for Greased Lightening. Otherwise, he gets overwhelmed and doesn't quite know what to do with himself. Plus, since the school table is usually covered with books and projects, a smaller amount is much more space appropriate. What has your tot been up to this week? Do you have any "go to" tot ideas? I'd love to hear them! More tot friendly ideas. Featured at the Hip Homeschool Hop

#### Small group is what we called it when I was a teacher. It was the time where we would split the kids into two groups and would do a teacher led activity together. I recently started doing a little pre-school program in my home and we have 26 days to fill this Summer so I couldn't resist doing a letter of the day! Our letter A small group was stickers and a letter Aa sheet to stick them on. Letter B was blue play dough with letter B cutters(bunny, bone, bear, bell, ext.) C was Colors! We mixed colored water and then put the glasses in rainbow order! The kids LOVED this! D was counting Dogs and then Dinosaurs with our counting mats. For the Letter E I filled a cookie sheet with letter E things and then covered it with a cloth. I would take away one thing and the kids would guess what I took away. We will do this again because it was very challenging for them! Oh and we named the little boy Ed and the wood box was Empty:) I'm not a big letter theme crafty person but the children have been loving the letter of the day! Caden has been talking about the letters of the day non stop and he's know all of his letters for over a year and a half! I'll post more small groups in a week or so:)

Great, fun matching game

#### Abc, Ice Cream

#### Matching upper and lower case letters...did this out of 'foam' ice cream cones from Hobby Lobby. Looks like this would make a great file folder game.

#### Ice Cream Cone letter game. Match upper-case w/ lower-case.

#### Thanks to Ronald Reagon, July is National Ice Cream Month and we're celebrating all week long with ice cream crafts and activities. Today I whipped up this simple matching game for A as we continue to work on her ABC's. I google-imaged "cone" and "ice cream cone scoop" and found this great cone graphic as well as a template for a scoop. I printed off a bunch of the cones and cut them out, writing a lower case letter on each one. For the scoops, I used Photoshop to fill in each one with a fun pattern. (Squidfingers.com has some fabulous patterns for free.) You could always just use the template to trace and cut out of scrapbook paper, though. Eventually I'm hoping A will be able to match the upper and lowercase letters, but until then this is working great for letter recognition. She might just know all her letters by the time preschool starts!

Texture Sequencing Sticks - color, texture and quantities matched to digits. Lots of simultaneous learning happening. When students make these for themselves you add fine motor. I would let them keep the sticks in a pencil box at their desk and help them learn to count objects and match the spoken number word to the symbolic digit - so difficult for some of my kiddos.
