Tot School Printables A to Z Bundle!!

Tot School Printables A - Z Bundle


I am so excited to share our new Tot School Printables A-Z Bundle! I created this program for tots years ago when my daughter was younger and it was my favorite year with her! We had so much fun with these units, during such a fun time of her life!  I love toddlers!

First, what is Tot School Printables A to Z? This is a program I developed to help parents and caregivers expose their tots to early learning skills at home while having FUN together. It is not a set of worksheets, but is in “printable” format to make it easier for the parent to build on. Each printable has ideas for hands on fun that your tot may enjoy. There are many options for each unit because all tots are different and won’t enjoy the same activities!

Let me repeat – this is NOT a set of worksheets for toddlers. Toddlers don’t need “school work” and just enjoy playing. I believe in open-ended, hands-on learning, especially in the younger years. Many parents want to expose early learning skills through play and they just don’t know what to do or how to organize their thoughts. That is why I created TSP, for you and for me. It’s all meant to be fun for the tot and for you!


Why a Bundle?

As you may know, the original files for Tot School Printables are available for free. Many people prefer a bundled format and would rather buy it that way which is why I created this.  Below you will see the special features of the bundle so you can decide if this is right for you!


Special Features in the Bundle…

Each of the 26 units has been edited and updated. The basics are the same, but a few things needed some editing and that was done. Specifically, all vocabulary cards were updated to include an option with or without words. The number cards were also updated to include 1-20 in all units.

Intro pages were added to each file to help you prepare for each unit. There is a new intro sheet which features a direct link to our blog post for inspiration, as well as links to our Pinterest boards for that unit.  You will also see ideas for books and toys to add to your learning.



A new planning sheet is included with each unit, to help you gather your thoughts.  I do not believe in writing lesson plans for tots, they are all different and need you to follow their lead when it comes to “school stuff.”  This is why you will not see a daily plan written by me for you.  You have to do what feels right with your tot, this page can help you organize your thoughts and plan!



There are 2 additional pages with direct links to helpful posts, just to make it easier for you to reference helpful posts and items!

There’s also a basic supply list included, which you can also see online here.

2nd Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices

2nd Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices

My daughter is 7 and going into 2nd grade this year. Below are the 2nd grade homeschool curriculum choices we have made for Ladybug! Changes may come, but this is the plan for now!

Curious to see what she did in the past?

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used below}

2nd Grade Subjects

We will not be doing all of these every day. Follow along with us and I will share throughout the year so you can see how it all fits in!

More Thoughts

Math ~ We have chosen to start Teaching Textbooks with Ladybug because we love it so much!  Both of our boys use TT and we plan to continue with all kids.  Ladybug will also continue on with Life of Fred, simply because we love those too. Spielgaben is a fun way for us to do some fun hands-on math each month.

Reading ~ Ladybug reads above grade level and can comprehend above grade level also.  She LOVES to read and spends lots of her free time reading.  At this point she doesn’t need a reading curriculum to teach her how to read so we are going to read together!  I did get her a Reading Comprehension workbook, to be sure she stays on top of those skills.

Spelling ~ All About Spelling Level 2~  We used level 1 and it works well for her so we will be moving on to level 2!

Grammar ~ We will be using First Language Lessons Level 2 and Growing with Grammar Level 2.  I really like the differing approaches, and both are very simple and don’t take a lot of time each day. I also created a set of PowerPoints to go along with the poems she will be memorizing this year through First Language Lessons.

Handwriting ~ Logic of English Cursive ~ She learned her lowercase letters last year and got through some of the uppercase.  We will finish learning the uppercase and work more on cursive handwriting.

Science ~ My husband teaches our kids science and while at Teach Them Diligently, he decided on Apologia’s Swimming Creatures for Ladybug and Krash. They are all thrilled and I am just thrilled that he teaches science!

Bible ~ Picture Smart Bible K-3 Old/New Testament ~ She will do this with Krash {5th grade}.

Art ~ Although I am horrible at keeping up with art, I decided to buy the Home Art Studio 2nd grade DVD and the Holiday Arts and Crafts to use with Ladybug.  Hopefully between those two I will do a few projects with her!

Geography ~ I got her Evan-Moor Beginning Geography just to be sure she know basic geography skills. I wanted a simple workbook format for this year and this was my favorite after looking at several options.

History and World Geography  ~ Ladybug will join Krash for world history, world geography. We are using the same plan as last year…just continuing on!
