Toddler Ideas Tuesday: November 11, 2014

Welcome back to Toddler Idea Tuesdays! I hope you will join with me again in sharing the fun activities, crafts, and lessons that you are doing with your young children. 

I am finally getting back on track with the two younger children during our lesson time. We are still way back on the letter D. I printed out some worksheets from abctwiggles.com for both of them. Then we made some Dotted D's.

This worksheet focuses on upper/lower case identification.

Hannah worked on writing the letter Dd, coloring pictures that start with /d/, identifying the D/d to color the dinosaur, and identifying the pictures that started with /d/ while giving the dog the bones.

 Even Harold did well telling me which pictures started with /d/.

He colored a Dd poster as well and did a wonderful job gluing the bones onto the paper after I cut them out. I didn't help him with the gluing part at all.

And here are their Dotted D's. I just cut a D out of a piece of construction paper and cut out circles for the dots. Harold chose colors for the paper.


I have to say, I have missed making letter crafts for the children.

Now onto:

Toddler Idea Tuesday Features

On my last Toddler Idea Tuesday post, there were 3 wonderful posts linked up. As there were no clicks at all last week, I have decided to highlight all 3 posts. 

1- Christianity Cove shared 13 Thanksgiving Bible Activities That Teach Gratitude. I have to say, this is perfect timing, because we have been learning about gratitude.  

2- The Bewitchin' Kitchen shared Tips for Planning a Train Themed Birthday Party. I'm not sure if we will be doing a train themed party any time soon. However, I can really see making use of these ideas when we are doing the letter T. I love the look of the train snack ideas.

3- Mimi and the Grands shared T is for Turkey - Book Study Unit. There are many great ideas for a Thanksgiving unit study. I need to see if I can find the book T is for Turkey to read to the children. 

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your toddlers and preschoolers? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on my Toddler Ideas board and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up. Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our toddler time. By linking up you are giving me permission to use a picture from your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your toddler, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Sunday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.
