We took it very easy with school this past week. I just brought out some random things that were easy for me to put together for M. He is very into elaborate pretend play now and I’m trying to give him plenty of time for that. If he’s involved in something like that during the only time I have free for a little school, well then no school. I’m totally ok with that, although I have to work hard not to compare myself with other mommies out there.
So, in no particular order this week, here’s what we did (no action shots)…
A corkboard and push pins to outline the little pictures with. I had several of these left over from the last time this activity was out. He really enjoys this one!
Our newest puzzle from our toy lending libary:
Pegboard game with shapes, also from the toy library:
A new puzzle from mama (I’ve got scads of these stashed around the house; he just loves a new puzzle challenge).
The good old Lite Brite, which is always fun. He likes to pull the shades in his room, close the door and get it as dark as possible when he plays with this:
Our foam puzzles – numbers and ABCs. He still likes to hammer these guys in with his little wooden hammer!
The first thing he goes for every week is his letter cutting/collage page. He did S this week:
The sand tray and his soft pipecleaner letters.
And, he checks his little sprouts every single morning. It’s looking like we are going to have lots of shamrocks and forget-me-nots. We’ve been counting them and he’s so good about taking care of them. I really need to thin them out, but they are like his babies, so I’m not sure exactly how to go about doing that. :)
I know we’ve done a lot more than this, but if I don’t take a picture of it I just can’t remember anything. Actually, that’s true about a lot of things, not just tot school! :)
Go here to see other tot-schooling mamas.
Have a beautiful day! )
