This week was our first week of Tot School. I learned a lot, Gabriel learned a lot, showed me how much he already knows, and most of all, we both had fun. It made me realize why I don't want to go back to teaching (for now), the fun was what I was missing my last year of teaching.
Here is a wrap up of what we did this week and some pictures. I am really glad that Gabriel and I are doing this during the day. Miss that Nathan misses most of it but Gabriel and I recap our day for him as soon as Nathan gets home!

One of VDay Crafts
Gabriel is pointing out shapes and colors
Creating Circles using Blue Paint
Toilet Paper Roll and Cookie Cutters
Practicing his Circles and Triangles
The Triangle turned into a path. Later learned
Mickey Mouse talks about paths and maps
on the show.
He wanted Circle "Sandmiches"
The face of Play-doh does not taste good
Little help by me and he created his first
Yellow Triangle. Triangle needed
eyes he said.
Our VDay box and showing the squares and triangles
on the box. I drew on the box which upset Gabriel
because he wanted to draw his own squares and
square. Pretty good for his 1st square.
ABC and 123 Blocks
He put the numbers in order and I added the picture blocks
Relating the word with a drawing
my handwriting - his drawing
