and it tasted about as good as it looked!
We all kind of gagged and choked our way through the 3 flavors (some of us anyway- others refused after the first disgusting bite!):

I also googled images of the money and printed a few on cardstock.
lapbook we included our notebooking pages. We use the great country info and Children Just Like Me notebooking pages from Jolanthe.
goot a sackne" translation: he got a spanking!
That is our 1st country in. We will add other countries in behind and divide them with tabbed dividers. We're enjoying our trips so far!

Then I showed them a list of all the prepositions. Jackson read them and Ashton highlighted the ones they found.
I was impressed by how many they found and hope this helps them remember what a preposition is!

This wasn't technically Tot School, but I had to snap a picture of one of those beautiful moments where they are actually happily playing together! They loveLittle People almost as much as I do!
They are masters of all farm animals now. This is Wesley in the middle of making his pig noise while showing me the finger puppet. I love that Tot School makes old toys new again. I bought this farm set 8 years ago and it never gets played with until I made it part of farm week. It's amazing to me how intentionally playing with your kids can enable them to play with things on their own later, giving you time to blog:)
Will was very proud of his cat!
I was surprised to see Wesley take his toy over here to play because that is the time out corner! I have also always helped him match the animal halves up on this game. I was very surprised to see he can now do it on his own- smart boy.
This was another moment where I caught them playing on their own. Wesley was feeding Will a pretend waffle. I love how they are using their imaginations so much together.
As we begin learning about zoo animals, nothing beats riding a zebra. Look at that hair go:
I just got these droppers from Oriental Trading. I put a drop of blue food coloring in water in a divided bowl and showed them how to transfer the water from one side to the other. They did it then decided it would also be fun to squirt it on themselves and up in the air. As you can tell by the picture of Will's mouth this was after the peanut butter snack.
This puzzle was just more exposure to the letters as I made their sound for them as we put the pieces in.
Wesley was a big fan of the kangaroo who we made jump because Mommy has no idea what and if kangaroos make a noise.
If you want to see what all your peeps did this week in Tot School, kick back and head over to Carissa's blog!
