Tot School--A Week II

Tot School
Isaiah is 38 months

A is for Apple (as in Mac)

This week we caught up on our art project of the letters in Isaiah's name.  Here he is praying for an iphone, that goes with the second I in his name.  We also did an A of course with little black ants painted on it with q-tips, but somehow I missed getting a picture of that.  You'll see it when we have our "big reveal" of all the letters of his name after this week.


Airplane
Isaiah enjoyed playing with his little airplane one day while doing his therapy.

Ark
This was our big project for the week.  I've decided to work our letter theme each week around a story in the Bible.  This gives me more structure, and helps me find creative ways to teach Isaiah about our AWESOME God.  This week we made our own ark.  I had a shoe box with a flip-style lid, that worked perfectly!  I cut strips of 2 different colors of brown paper for our logs.   Then we glued them on.  Isaiah did a great job hammering, them, too to make sure that they stayed attached.

Animals
And what ark would be complete with out animals?  We had a hand-me-down book about zoo animals that broke at the binding, so I took each cardboard page and gave them to Isaiah to put in and out of the ark, since this is by far his favorite thing to do with anything!

Apples
While Isaiah did eat a lot of apples this week, this time apples was taken from our verse for the week: Proverbs 25:11 "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." (ESV)  No, I didn't have him memorize it (though I did!), but we talked about it every day at least once, probably 2 or 3 times.  I already have a verse ready for H for this week, and I hope to incorporate a craft as well.  My goal with these ideas is to simply continue to build on the foundation of using the Scripture as our guide for life, which my husband and I have been desiring to teach Isaiah from the very beginning.  I think though that this will help me just as much as it will help Isaiah!  May the Lord bless His Word, that it may be implanted deeply into Isaiah's heart!

Acrobat

And here's a special treat:  a video of my little acrobat.  Who needs aerobics when you can have so much fun with your little person?

Good idea to let him "hammer" the logs onto the ark! Loved the video too!

OH! That video is ADORABLE! I was just a little choked up watching it. SO SO sweet!
I love that he was praying for an iPhone THAT'S FUNNY!

Danielle,
Thankfully, hammer starts with "h", so we can officially use the hammer this week! :)

K,
Thanks for the comment! I just loved that picture with the iphone, so I couldn't resist. He LOVES our cell phones, and yes, my husband has an iphone, and Isaiah can very clearly say "iPhone!". He knew what this was in the magazine when he saw it.

He is loving the acrobat routine - what fun! That iphone prayer cracks me up, too... That ark is a terrific idea - it looks like a great week!
