She was immediately drawn to the fall songs, which I had displayed in our mini pocket chart.

Fall Theme -1569

 

We have enjoyed these leaf songs countless times during the past two weeks, tossing leaves all around!

The silk leaves were from the dollar store years ago and have been great.  I put some in a glass jar and added a clothespin for some fine motor work.

The bowl of leaf and pumpkin gems {from Target dollar section last year I think} has been sorted numerous times.  We have also made patterns together, and counted our piles many times.  Such natural learning with engaging and simple materials.

Below you can see her sorting.

We got out our Scarecrow printables and enjoyed reading together! Story retelling is a favorite with these printable characters.  We put magnets on the back and use our cookie sheet.

We also had a notebook full of coloring sheets and printables for her to choose from.  Sadly, I didn’t get any photos of her in action!  Everything in the notebook is pinned on our Fall board!

Tot School Gathering Place Week 93



Life with a Tot is ALWAYS exciting! Everything they do and say is a source of delight! This past week a friend of mine was thankful that her Tot had taken the initiative to practice his handwriting on his own this week – and was also thankful she had purchased the fabric protection for her furniture! I LOVED her thinking! What has your Tot done this week? Be sure to share the fun you and your Tot experience throughout the week through the linky. You may just inspire another Mama and her Tot!

Do you have a Tiny Tot? Some Tots, especially if they have older siblings, are anxious to “do school!” Check out the activities that Tot Vito enjoyed over at Pinay Homeschooler and see if maybe your Tiny Tot might enjoy them!

Over at Learning with Mom, Mama Jasmine helped her Tot explore the letter C with a Biblical emphasis on Joseph and his coat! Head on over and see the fun activities that she put together to emphasize this theme.

Teach Them Diligently 2015

I am beyond excited for the Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Conventions coming in 2015. I was blessed to attend 3 conventions last spring as a speaker and was blown away with the entire convention. My entire family attended one weekend with me and we agreed, it was a fabulous experience for all of us!

Conventions for 2015 will be in Nashville, Atlanta, Sandusky, and Dallas this year!

I will be speaking at Teach Them Diligently this year. I hope to be at all four, but my exact locations are still being decided. As of now, I will definitely be in Nashville and Ohio! Have you seen that water park resort in Ohio?  My family took one look and decided that was the convention they’d be joining me on this year.

I got to meet many blog readers and fellow homeschoolers last year and look forward to doing the same this year. I hope to meet some of you next year!
