Below is Butters Tot Tray Setup for Tot School 

This year I am trying out workboxes for Cowboy, so far they are a hit and he loves feeling so big like his Sister. Below is what his set up looks like for now... I will be switching it up a little bit later but for now here it is. His boxes, unlike Butters tot trays, change everyday. Where as Butters, only the letter work activities change. 

Memory Verse
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 
Matthew 5:9

This is our Learning Resources Table Pocket Chart (I LOVE IT) I put the vocabulary cards for the boys along with Bible Memory verse,(which I get from My ABC Bible Verses Book) and Letter for the week. We go over them everyday.

Cowboy, pointing to his Bible Verse as we read it Aloud. We go over everything, on what I call the Memory Board, before we start any workboxes.

Counting to number of the week "18" with Melissa & Doug Abacus.

We were reading about Airplanes, Blimps and Helicopters, in the Book

Building a City with Foam Wood Building Blocks

 Lou had her friend over who is also homeschooled and the kids did some school work at the kitchen table. They did really good in a group setting it was very cool to see how the different ages, all doing different things, worked :) It was like a mini co-op.

Cowboy Cut out his Memory Verse, taped it together and then measured it.

I made cowboy a necklace, and he did NOT want to take it off!! He thought it was so special, so to return the love, he made me one, and Lou snapped a picture while he was giving it to me. I wish it was not so blurry but it was a moment I will never forget!

I wore it as a crown :P
