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!

Slide5

 

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.

It has been a few years since we used Tot School Printables when Ladybug was around 2 years old. It was such a fun time, one of my favorite programs.  Tot School Printables Tot School Printables isn’t just a printable program, it encourages you to dive into a particular theme with each unit, and develop vocabulary along the way.  Exposing basic early learning skills happens all while you are just having fun!

If you have a tot around the age of 2 or 3, and are looking for some direction, this might be for you!  My daughter was 23 months old when we began, and she begged for table work.  You can read my post, Following the Lead of the Child, to see how difficult this was for me as an early childhood educator to accept. We had a fabulous time using this program and it really helped me stay on track and have fun activities to expose her to every week!

This is a FREE printable program, you can download the lessons on the Tot School Printables webpages.  Below you can see all of our posts A-Z linked up, and get a feel for how we did things.

This was our very last Tot School Printables unit, I can’t believe it!  She began at 22 months and we made it through in just under 10 months.  It truly was the perfect fit for her and she is now ready to move on.  You can see her upcoming plans here if you haven’t read that post yet.

I tried to capture many final TSP moments this week!  One new thing that I wish I would have thought of earlier was creating a Letter of the Week notebook for her,  She loves her Tot Time Notebook, so I tried the method out for her letter Zz work this week and she LOVED it!!!  It also kept me more organized!

IMG_7983  IMG_7989

I made her a special bucket with her click markers and eraser so she could easily choose while she worked.IMG_7991

IMG_7993  IMG_7997IMG_8305

Some of the papers were in the sheet protectors but we pulled them out so she could color on them.‘   IMG_7998We made play dough letters on the cover of the notebook, where I slipped the letter Zz title page.IMG_8137

The Play Dough Box is the biggest hit around here, it is played with daily.  Ladybug now creates on her own and comes up with some adorable creatures.

Here’s another snowman I caught her working on.  When I came back a few minutes later he was sudden;y an angry snowman!

Craft time for Truth in the Tinsel is still much fun for her, she likes participating.  Painting Bethlehem {the hands helping her are not my husband’s, remember her beloved boyfriend?  He is back for a visit and she is in heaven!}…IMG_8191

Working on baby Jesus in the manger {we modified the craft from the book}…

Working in her “favorite characters” notebook.  She begs for coloring sheets so I printed one of each for all of her favs {Mickey, Chuggington, Handy Manny, etc.} and made a notebook similar to the Tot Time Notebook.  She LOVES it!  Now I don’t have to print and print and print!IMG_8187

We had a low key Christmas week.  Compared to our intense Christmas fun last year, this week was mostly a bunch of nothing!  We had a few issues in ministry come up that needed our attention and we adjusted. The main issue occurred on Sunday night last week which is my main planning night and it just threw the whole week off.  Hopefully next week will be filled with Christmas learning fun all week long!

She LOVED the Story props for the book, One Baby Jesus.IMG_7802

I can’t believe we are so close to the end of Tot School Printables!  It is coming at a perfect time.  She still likes them, but not as much as she did in the beginning.  She is ready for something new.  We will be completing the units before the new year and starting something fresh in January when we return from Christmas break! I will be writing a post soon to share what my plans are, I just haven’t had the time yet!

We made play dough letters…IMG_7527

The theme of instruments made me think of one of Ladybug’s favorite shows, Little Einsteins.  I created some extra activities for her, which as you will see she LOVED! Download the Little Einsteins Tot Book for free here!

Little Einsteins Tot Book

She loved the mini book!IMG_7534

We slipped the dot paint sheets into sheet protectors and she squished play dough balls on the dots.IMG_7564

Then she asked to write their names.  Her tracing seriously amazes me.  Her simple desire to trace amazes me to be honest!IMG_7570

We made the shapes with dough too…IMG_7574

Then she dot painted a few of them…IMG_7576

We used dot stickers on some too!IMG_7580

She worked on her rocket colors book over a period of several days.  The other printables also came out numerous times!IMG_7642

I remembered to take a photo of her shelves this week!  Nothing too great, but here they are……IMG_7512

Didn’t take many action shots, but got this one of her stringing her beads!IMG_7653

She loves that Laura Carrot sings.  This is the same manger in the book, The Stable that Bob Built-which she is loving right now!IMG_7710

The instrument box was a hit!  One day we turned on our Laurie Berkner DVD for some movement!  She was shaking her Boca Beth Egg Shakers to the music!IMG_7655

Her Tot Time Notebook {which has only ABC sheets in it right now} gets filled in almost daily-she gravitates towards it on her own and will often sit and work through every single page!IMG_7515

The new Play Dough Box has been a HUGE hit.  She has asked for it daily, almost to an excessive point!IMG_7557

We have been reading a few gingerbread books and there are gingerbread cutters in the box…which has provided TONS of fun for her and the boys!IMG_7694

Moms-Favorite_thumb2_thumb_thumb_thu[1]One night when the boys were at church with Daddy, she begged me to do another Truth in the Tinsel bag.  Instead, we painted another crown craft, and then she didn’t want to stop, so we kept on painting!IMG_7590…and painting…IMG_7595

…and painting!IMG_7601

After a few normal painted sheets, she decided to turn it into finger paint {with my approval}…IMG_7603

IMG_7613She LOVED it!  IMG_7634

Remember last time she painted and painted her arms?  She was starting to do it again and I decided to put the limit on her this time and said just her hands.IMG_7627This was her sorrowful response.  The girl does not like to be told NO!  She listened though, very sadly {and a bit loudly}.IMG_7639

We had such a fun time together, since it was mostly giggles and smiles!  The tears only lasted a few minutes!
