Today in Tot School

Tot School

This week in Tot School, Lindsay is learning about the weather. Today we took a walk outside and sang our weather songs (below) while we looked at the clouds that were forming. We noticed the wind was picking up and talked about how that helps the leaves make their music. It never did actually rain, so we couldn't go puddle-jumping like I wanted to. Darn! we did the Hokey Pokey instead!!! We had a great day! Oh, in case anyone is wondering why my beloved child is in a summer dress and flip-flops in's because we live in Texas and while the weather has been quite chilly lately, today the temperature was in the upper 60's (storm's comin!!!)

Learn Weather Songs

Weather Song (Tune of "Oh My Darling")
What's the weather?
What's the weather?
What's the weather, everyone?
Is it windy?
Is it cloudy?
Is there rain?
Or is there sun?

Thunder (Tune of Frere Jacques)
I hear thunder, I hear thunder,
How about you? How about you?
Pitter patter rain drops, pitter patter rain drops,
I'm wet through
So are you!

Fun in the Rain (Tune of "Three Blind Mice")
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
Dribble, dribble, sploosh!
Dribble, dribble, sploosh!
Grab your boots, your coat, your hat,
Jump in a puddle and go kersplat!
Stomp about and become a drowned rat,
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain!


Letter: B (we just got back from visiting my mom, who all the grandkids call "B")
Shape: Triangle

After we talked about all the different things that start with the letter "B," Lindsay completed worksheets on identifying triangles, and was able to find and color all the hidden "Bb's" on her coloring page.

After it was all said and done, Lindsay decided she wasn't finished with Tot School. She actually raised her hand and informed me it was time for blocks. I think she picked that up from the many hours of playing school with Addison! Too funny!!! She really is a great builder - I might have a future architect on my hands!!!

For those of you who are interested in joining Tot School, or reading other Tot Reports from other moms, go visit Carisa's blog at 1+1+1=1 and find some great ideas!


  1. what a great week! ahh to have 60's! we are in the 20's now and that isn't the wind chills! we've played in the snow too! :) that is kinda fun though and i don't mind bitter cold weather if there is snow on the ground! anyway

    your week looked like alot of fun!

  2. I like your weather songs! I'll have to learn them, especially the rainy ones for all the rainy weather we have in the fall and spring; it will help pass the yucky grey days better.
