Tot School

~Krash is currently 37.5 months old~

Tot School is in full swing again, and we are enjoying it! I decided to divide this post into categories of our learning instead of the weekly order, let me know if you like it better this way and I will keep on posting like this. It helps me see where I am possibly falling short and where he is getting exposure so I can adjust for the next week. I got this idea from RockerMom who began posting RockerTot’s Tot School posts in a similar way-thanks for the great idea!!!

Learning Toys/Puzzles…

K enjoyed playing with Baba until he had to leave on Wednesday…
He asked me for our Bead Sequencing Set

I got him these cute Oreo Matchin’ Middles at the used book sale for 25 cents…score-he loved them!!!He is getting really good at his 24 piece Cars puzzle, and will ask me to show him if he can’t find where a piece goes…
Another consignment sale find…these great Bristle Blocks
He did really well sorting by size…

Physical Games/Toys…
K continues to love Wii Boxing, we continue to love watching him!!!ABC Fun…

I made Krash this new abc set, using pipe cleaners to make each lowercase letter (I used a glue gun to make them). I got the idea from this great blog (who got it from another great blog…aren’t blogs great!!!)! I made ours a little different, putting them on rings so he can carry them all and flip through them. I am adding a new letter as we go through the alphabet this time in abc order.
This week he enjoyed making his Ee with eggsand his Ff with feathers
After he made each letter he helped me add the new letter to the rings, which we will continue to do now. Then we go through them all together.I am also adding letters to our Wooden Alphabet set on the dishwasher as we work on them. He plays with them a lot now, I have heard him practicing them on his own and also singing…

Arts and Crafts…

K did water painting for the first time…
He drew his first face and person, which I LOVE!!!!!
He chose to make Daddy a car painting for Father’s Day (he pointed to his Cc on our wall and asked me to paint with the cars again).

Life School…
Krash and Ladybug enjoyed watching Baby Einstein together…Krash went bike riding with Daddy and Pac for the first time!!!
He also started his very first swimming lessons…
My Favorite…

Finally, here’s my favorite shot of my precious boy from this past week…


If you have a tot (approximately ages 1-3) at home, join in the fun and share what you’re doing with your tot! Here’s how to get started if you’re new…
If you’ve never read this: Go HERE 1st for more details- please do!!! Then if you have any ideas you’d like to share, link up your exact post to Mr Linky (if you have questions about how to do that, let me know in a comment or email-links to homepages will automatically be deleted).
When you add your name(blog name) to Mr. Linky will you put your tot’s age (in months) after it, like this: 1+1+1=1 (36 mos)? I think this will help new readers a lot as they look for ideas for their specific aged tot!

If you are unsure of how to add your direct link to Mr Linky-I added a tutorial with photos here, scroll down to see it!
