Tot School


I have been hearing a lot about the phenomenon of Tot school.  Since Maddie is not in school and wants to do school with Mommy, I decided I better have some planned activities for her.  A couple of weeks ago I pulled out my apple unit from my Kindergarten days.  I had some red and green foam apples and then some fake red and green apples that I let her play with.  We practiced saying the colors red and green and then I taught her how to put the red fake apples on the red foam apple and then the same with the green. I then let her glue red and yellow tissue paper on one of the foam apples.  She loved that!

This week we begin to discover fall.  I went to Hobby Lobby and explored their fall stuff.  I found all sorts of cool little things that I put together in a plastic dishpan (found at the dollar store).  Here are some of the things I included:

fake leaves
small pumpkins
fall bells
felt leaves
wooden acorns
fake corn
plastic squash

She loves to take everything out of the box and put it back in again.  I am working on new activities so I will keep you posted on what I put together!
