{Tiny Teach} C is for China

For a while now, I have been planning on doing some "real teaching" with my Lil' Pumpkin, who will be 2 1/2 on Oct. 4.  His little brain is like a sponge right now & I want to take advantage of this amazing time to learn.  I want to thank Alison at Oopsey Daisey for giving me the inspiration to start now. So, this week we started "Tiny Teach," where I am teaching a letter each week along with a theme.

For our first week, I chose the letter C and we learned about China (because that's where his Daddy was all week for work).  Here's an overview of our week!

my lesson plan

We drove cars on our "C Road"

We glued cheerios to a letter C and colored pictures that started with C.

We made letter C's and cars out of playdough.

We finger-painted a Chinese flag.

We read, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and then made cookies with candy pumpkins on top.

Here's our cookie.

We made a Panda Bear out of circles.

We took a "Field Trip" to eat Chinese at Pei Wei, an Asian Diner (yum!!)

Our C Muffin Tin Meal: cheese, cucumbers, chips, chicken, cranberries, & candy corn

YAY for Muffin Tin Meals!!!
