Tot School

30 monthsTot School

We had another slow week over here. Mommy hurt her back on Wednesday so I spent most of Thursday and Friday sitting on the couch with a heating pad and reading books with the kiddos! They were both rainy, dreary days so it was wonderful for snuggling and reading books Smile My back is feeling much better now Smile

I got out some smiley face magnets and the whiteboard and let Moo-Bear go to town. I think she got these out every day!

I had these foam elephant stickers and I cut a slit in the lid of a container and she put them inside. She wasn’t too enthralled with this one!

She loves this! When we were playing I would put the shapes on the wrong spot and she would tell me no and put it in the correct place Winking smile

I got out our colored word tiles and colored buckets again. She really just liked dumping out the tiles and making a big mess Winking smile

elephant dot art
I got this “E” do-a-dot page from COAH! She loved it, as usual!

elephants and peanuts
I printed off these elephant graphing pages from COAH. We used some peanuts as our counters and she did a great job. When she was finished we got a little snack!

elephant clips
I also got these from COAH. They were elephants with numbers on them and we clipped the correct number of clothespins on each elephant!

This is our fall sensory bin. She likes it ok, but I am beginning to think Moo-Bear is one of the few 2 year olds that doesn’t really care for sensory bins Winking smile

So, that was most of our week. This week we are just going to be having fun talking about Thanksgiving! For more great ideas check out 1+1+1=1!

Tot School

Tot School

30 months

This week we did letter “L” for leaf. I wanted to wait until the leaves actually started changing colors and falling down so we could go outside and play in them. But, we didn’t do a whole lot of leaf playing b/c both kiddos were sick this week. And b/c we have been finding snakes in our yard and it scares me to have them play in piles of leaves b/c I am sure snakes are hiding in there ;)

I am trying to teach her to put the dots on the circles on the paper, but she still prefers to just dot the whole page. We got this from COAH!

We did a leaf matching game, which I believe I got from File Folder Fun.

She played with our homemade shape sorter. And I think you can see the lacing toy behind her!


This is our bead sensory bin. I also made a fall one, but that day my camera’s battery died so I didn’t get any pics. Hopefully next week I will!


We are working on counting and used q-tips and this ice cube tray. She is getting a lot better and one-to-one correspondence!

I also got this leaf number matching from File Folder Fun. She matched them correctly, but I think it was more by color than number recognition!

Moo-Bear is really into gluing lately. So, we got a leaf printable and glued black beans on it. My girl, who loves to have paint all over her hand like lotion, was not too happy about glue getting on her fingers ;)


I printed out some small and large leaves and she separated them. This is getting way too easy for her so I will definitely add the medium size next time.

And here is the one day we did go out to play in the leaves. They had a blast :)

So, that was most of our week. Check out 1+1+1=1 for more great ideas!
