Tot School

Tot School

Miss O is 2 years and 10 months old.
This week in Tot School:

Daddy told the kids a felt bedtime story. They loved this!

A little Leap Frog Bingo: Miss O worked with the Unifix cubes:

Miss O tried her hand at writing for the first time. She did pretty well, but I won't be letting her try this for a while--she was very demanding and grabby, and wouldn't allow me to give her any guidance at all:
Miss O did some pop beads. She had a lot of trouble snapping some of these together, so I was really proud of her when she worked at snapping them all together for about 15 minutes before becoming too frustrated:

She worked on the three part puzzles:

And did some letter stamping. Just another way to expose her to the alphabet:
Here she, Little Bean and my mom were making crowns:

She washed the placemats for me. She loves doing these kinds of chores, and often asks if she can help me clean something:

Miss O spent some time working with the lentil tray:

And worked on matching the letters in this foam puzzle:
She spent a LITTLE time with the Potato Heads. As much as I want to hang onto these, I think it might be time to move on. They never play with them. Should I wait until they are older, or has the window of fun for Potato Heads passed???

Miss O, Little Bean and I played this puppy matching game I printed from filefolderfun.com. I love that it uses real puppies, rather than cartoon. My husband says I should teach them the names of the puppies, but honestly, I don't know all the breeds pictured!
Miss O completed some Tangrams:
And finished the whole puzzle file folder game I made for her:
And finally, she and Little Bean played with the felt. This has been a favorite activitiy all week!

I have been asking myself the same question about the potato heads. We have a huge bucket full of them because my son used to love them when he was 2. I was debating whether I should pass them on to someone else or make more of an effort to bring them out as an activity. My kids love our felt board too.

We only have the mini potato head, but her therapist uses one and she loves it...but Meghnan is a bit younger. I was thinking that it would be a good choice for birthday (Oct) or Christmas, but maybe not if others are outgrowing them at a young age.

What a week you had!

I'm wondering if RockerTot needs a potato head or not. We only have the mini one as well, but he really likes it. I really enjoy your posts. Thanks for sharing!

I keep our potato head in a separate room with certain toy he can only use for school time. ALL of those toys even the Potato Head he BEGS for. Yours might not be the same or you might even do what I do but if not give it a try???
PS I LOVE LOVE LOVE the felt storytime!
