Tot School

Tot School
27 months

This week was a little better with out Tot School! I tried to get us in the school room every day and at least do our trays. I am trying to spend some time planning for the "school year" so I can be more organized and purposeful this fall. I plan on getting back into a regular routine (with themes and such) after Labor Day! Anyway, we had great fun this week!

I got this white board from Staples for $1 and then the Washable Expo Dry Erase markers on a great sale at Walgreens. She loved tracing her hand. Also, she would draw a line and say it was mommy, daddy, g-ma, etc. So fun :)

Moo-Bear was really into puzzles this week so I went with it. Here is an ABC puzzle and while she did it we talked about the letter names. She is getting really good at identifying letters!

A Tigger and Pooh puzzle I bought at Target. It was pretty hard for her to do this one. I helped her out and traced the pieces onto the cardboard so she can she the outline of where to put them. We'll see if that makes it any easier!

She found this in the cabinet so we pulled it out!

She is getting better at pulling the stickers off the sheet by herself. For the longest time she couldn't do it. And what better place to put stickers than on your leg ;)

Oh, and a few made it onto the paper!

She loves these bunnies from OTC. And I got the triangle tray from IKEA (wish we had one near us).

A shape puzzle from Target (wish we had one of those close, too!).

I filled a tub with stones and we poured, made a lot of noise, and a huge mess. Now that little man is moving around a bit (not crawling, but turning in circles and rolling around) I am super paranoid about little pieces on the floor.

Pouring into an old coffee cream container!

I got these cute summer shaped brads. They are suns, ducks, flip-flops, and beach balls. So cute! She was supposed to be putting one in each space, but she just played with them. Maybe next time.

  1. So cute with the stickers! My toddler likes to put them all over her face as well.

  2. Looks like you guys are having fun and staying cool over there. We have that same shape puzzle. Aidan loves it, too! I love it's simplicity. It also is great to identify colors. :)

  3. She's so cute! My tot is just getting the hang of peeling off the stickers too. I try and help her out by removing that background that surrounds the actual sticker.

    I got the cone cups, and almost everything in that bin, from the Dollar Tree.
