Tot School - Pumpkins

Linking up with 1+1+1=1

I haven't linked up in quite some time, mostly because Olivia hasn't been terribly interested in anything "schooly", but also because I'm been horrible at documenting what she HAS done. Now that's she's 3 I plan on encouraging/offering "schooly" stuff at least once a day, rather than waiting for her to ask for it as I did in the past.

For some things, we use Typical Course of Study through World Book as a guideline for what Olivia "needs" to know to "complete" Pre-K. Here's a current list of what we've got to work on...

Matches shaped or objects based on size
Completes incomplete sentence with proper word (really never tried this)
Prints own first name (currently working on tracing it)
Understands top, bottom, middle
Knows age and birthday (we've got age down, working on birthday)
Repeats a sequence of orally given numbers (if they're in order, sure. We're working on mixed up numbers)
Is able to stand on one foot for 5-10 seconds
Able to button a garment
Cuts simple shapes
Handles scissors well (just started with scissors)
Takes care of toilet needs independently (fighting  through this right now *sigh*)
Crosses residential street safely (working on it)
Knows home phone number (working on it)

She loves to practice cutting but refuses my help in showing her how to hold the scissors so she can make more than one cut *sigh*

She's loving these pumpkin pages I found at 1+1+1=1!

We did some yard work this week, Olivia had a blast in the leave

She also wanted to help Daddy dig up the spent plants in the veggie garden :)

Olivia grabbed this foam magnet picture frame, wrapped it around her LeapFrog toy and declared it a hexagon!
