Tommy the Triangle

20 Nov

We’re ending our lessons on the letter ‘T’ this week. But before we end, I wanted to do a lesson shapes, mainly triangles since it starts with ‘T’!

We read one of my favorite shapes book. The Greedy Triangle is about a triangle who is tired and bored of being a triangle, so he goes to the shapeshifter and changes into all sorts of shapes. In the end, he decides being a triangle is the best. The language in this book is too hard for a 3 year old to understand, so I retold the story to him in my own words so he could understand. Still, he could understand the concept and it introduced him to a triangle and other shapes.

Then we made Tommy the Triangle!! Here’s what you’ll need:

*a large triangle shape

*googly eyes

*other cut out shapes for a face

*glue

So to start, I gave him these shapes and had him put together Tommy the Triangle. 

And here he is!

Do any of you have fun lessons for teaching shapes?

Letter ‘T’ Alphabet Box & Train Coloring Book!

12 Nov

Oh I’m so happy to be blogging again! Last week was a crazy week! My husband was out of town for the past 7 days and I had a conference that I planned for my part-time job….I am SO glad that week is over! How are you all? Sure hope you had a great weekend!

In my last post, I showed you our Birthday Sensory Tub. Since Troy’s bday is coming up as well as Thanksgiving, we are focusing on the letter ‘T’. To start off, I introduced our ‘T’ alphabet box to him. 

Inside the alphabet box, there’s a train coloring book. To practice our colors, I made this small book for him to color. Each page says a different color, which is the color he will make the train. To download a copy of this coloring book, click ColorTrains. And to download a bigger copy, click ColorTrainsBig.

His favorite color of the day….pink! This little train book will be fun for him to look through to review his colors.

This little guy is obsessed with trains, which is why we are doing so many train activities!

Learning how to write the letter ‘T’. Got these printables here. This was a fun way to learn how to write the letters, since he basically made lines to each picture.

Well, that’s all for today. I’ll be blogging all this week, so make sure to check back tomorrow! Happy Monday!
