Preschool Corner ~ If it Moves, Do-a-Dot it!

This week was still a little off for us, but we are definitely moving in the right direction. :) My brother and grandmother have been visiting this week but we’re still doing school. Kaleb has gone from complete disinterest to sitting with us at the table quietly and stamping and and everything possible with his Do-A-Dot markers.

We might just run out of paper. But that’s ok.

Between the Do-A-Dot markers and other markers the boy has literally been covered head to toe in ink daily…but that’s ok. :)

We also had another trip to the doctor’s office trying to pinpoint what is going on in the little boy’s body, since he still just isn’t himself. If you were in a 5 mile radius of the doctor’s office when his blood was drawn, I’m so sorry for all the screaming. Wouldn’t you know the boy perked right up after we left ~ apparently my dishing out cash and him having his body poked and prodded were helpful in some way. :)

This was also Kaleb’s first week with the Awana Cubbies program ~ he wasn’t super thrilled once we got there, and now we’re working on having him learn his first verse for the program. We’re also starting back up with our local homeschool co-op…today, as a matter of fact, so we’ll see how that all goes.

Next week I have a special little surprise for Kaleb that I’m hoping he is going to L.O.V.E. And if not, I’m going to put together a big ol’ pile of Do-A-Dot pages for him to work on. :)

  • Ha Ha! Don't you just love those do-a-dot markers??? My little guy used them this week too. I don't know what it is about them that makes them so appealing but whatever it is, it works... Thank you for sharing!

  • Praying you find out what is going on and that he is better quickly! Love the do-a-dots too!

    It is the only medium that Noah can do without making everything else covered in what is in his hand!

    Love you,

  • This is hilarious - my son has recently discovered bingo daubers, too, and he loves them, so I loved the title of your post! :)

  • Prayers from me to you Jolanthe, sincerely. I hope all is well and figured out soon with Kaleb. I will be thinking of you and praying for Kaleb each day.

  • We love our do-a-dots too! All of my friends that see them always go buy them. And I had a problem with one of the markers once, and the company was awesome about it. We just posted this week about my son doing sudokus with do-a-dots lately, and someone else (forgot the link, sorry) posted about a scroller scavenger hunt marked off with do-a-dots. But, like your son, mine is also just happy to stamp away on a blank sheet. For a little while anyway. :)

  • We have been using the bingo dots this week (since you mentioned it) and my Manny loves them. I am super excited hoping that you will put up your dot sheets so we can all love them!

  • I hope that bloodwork checks out OK and Kaleb will be back to his usual cheerful self completely.

  • We LOVE Do a Dots, and my boys are not in preschool any longer (6 & 9). They can be used for so many, many things!

    Prayers for you and Kaleb. It's so hard when you know your little ones are not feeling well, but just can't pinpoint what is going on. We dealt with that for over a year - finally, found a Dr. that dx food allergies, even after the first doctor insisted that couldn't be the problem. Turns out it was - no more milk, no more problems!

  • Hey Jolanthe! random question...what program do you use to make it so we can download straight from your blog instead of going through something like 4shared or what not...? Is it something you pay to have or something?

    Thanks for all you contribute and give!

  • HI, I have been posting to Preschool Corner, but I don't see my post anymore. Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks, Karen

  • We love Do a Dot too!!! Praying your little guy feels better. Btw, today is the last day for a Seeds of Worship cd giveaway on my blog and there's a free download song there if you or anyone else is interested! :)

  • I actually have my own website and pay for my own domain. Scribd was driving me nuts {and so does 4shared} so I just sucked it up and bought my own domain and pay for the service.

  • I have been looking for Do A Dots everywhere!! Where in the world do you find them?? besides Amazon, because I want them NOW.

  • Awww, love this and it is definitely OK! I will be praying for your little one.
