Tot School - 18 months

Tot School

I didn't have a theme for the week so I am just posting a random collection of things we did this past week.  We are taking this week off of Tot School since Daddy will be home all week.  We're going to be out doing all kinds of fun things as a family!  But I plan on getting back to our color themes the week after.

Kyla got this Melissa & Doug Fishing Puzzle from her Godmother, Kirsten, and absolutely loves it!

As she gets older, she will understand the "fishing" part a little more.  For now she just takes the red magnetic part and hooks onto one of the sea animals.  She gets so excited when she gets one!

I brought out her Geo Forms Sorting Puzzle again this week, which she always loves.

Carefully stacking

I guess her teddy's wanted to watch her do Tot School today :)

Back to the fishing puzzle

I got our color flash cards out to do some color matching.  She isn't able to do this on her own, but she likes having me help her.  

I tried to snap of picture of her getting so excited when we were doing this color matching.  She would hand me a shape and I would say the color and tell her where to put it.  She'd put it on the color card and I would say "Good job!" and she would get so excited.  I could have done this all day.  It was so stinking cute!

Taking a break to read a book on her rocker

She likes going out to get the mail with Tyler and I so I made her a little mailbox of her own.  I realize it doesn't look like an actual mailbox, but she enjoys it.  I just wrapped up an old Pampers box.  I give her our junk mail and she likes to drop it in the box each day.

I cut the bottom out so I guess it makes a good hiding spot too :)

I got her some Mickey Mouse counting cards awhile ago from the Target dollar section so she enjoys putting those in there too.

She has been enjoying her Leap Frog Fridge Farm a lot more lately.  Before she would get frustrated because she couldn't get the pieces in, but still liked listening to the music.  Now she can get the pieces in.  Next step is matching the animals correctly.

We have been enjoying a lot more outside time this week since it wasn't as hot.  She loves to help water flowers.

One of her favorite toys is her Lil' Baker Smart Kitchen.  We love to pretend to eat the soup and she likes putting the cake, cheese and bread (circle, triangle and square) into the oven.  She can get the circle and square, but still struggles with the triangle.

We went to Toddler Time this week and Kyla made a watermelon craft.

She played with clothes pins again.  She still hasn't got the hang of pinching them, but just pulls them off the bowl.

I decided to try play-doh again this week.  If you remember, she has had nothing to do with it in the past.  But today, she loved it and played with it for a good 30 minutes.

She did a lot better with the do-a-dots this week too.  She still enjoys taking the cap off and putting it on.  But she also did lots of dotting :)

Check back in two weeks for the return of our color themes!  And to see what other Tot School mom's are doing, go here.

    Love the mailbox idea!

  3. I love the mailbox idea!

  4. I want to do that mailbox idea because it's so cute! Nicolas has that fridge barn also and loves it..I ask him to get the pieces of whatever animal and he sometimes gets it right.. :)

  5. A short moment later, James traded for his share for the business to Tom for just a second-hand Volkswagen
    Beetle automobile, probably a deal he took to later are sorry for.
    We had no problem finding a space, though, despite the
    fact that there was a performance that night. Gurgaon is famous for its
    hospitality and when it's time to party Gurgaon have lots of bar in the city to enjoy.

  6. ” The stepmother went over to the young “Jessie
    James,” placed her hand under his chin, tilted his head upward, looked him
    squarely in the eyes for a moment, and then turned to
    her husband and said, “You are wrong. Predominantly the computer software

  7. With over 30 years of specialisation in seamless flooring,
    Flawless Flooring has managed to satisfy the different and unique requirements of every customer.
    First, ready mixed concrete
    in Sunderland can help you get your construction job done faster.
    However, both the methods have their own pros and cons.

  8. According to coal miners can make from $56,000-$104,000 a year.
    Approach human resource professionals and companies and ask what
    skills and qualities they look for in staff and be able to tick all the boxes before applying.
    Data mining is
    mostly a relatively new term that represents the process by that predictive patterns are
    made from information.

  9. Pilots complete flights for their airline, using their simulator, either online (using a network such as Sim -
    Miles) or offline, and then file a pilot report.
    Some of the game titles that are part of this genre involve the more recent of the
    Red Baron series and European Air model. You must, however,
    practice auto-rotations at the flying field with the
    help of an instructor. This kind of game is great because
    it can also provide scientific information, 'Phun' would help with physics study obviously while other simulation games that offer choices could contribute valuable data
    to Psychology. 3) Physical parameters: The
    simulators are almost real, but actually they are on the
    ground, I mean around the sea level.

  10. If one innocently applies an insufficient amount
    of sealer on a very porous concrete material, the said material may not be effective at all.

    The estimate you receive will be based on the number of skips you need, what size skip you want,
    and how long you plan to keep it. Flawless Flooring's polished concrete floor product boasts durability and decorative seamless surfaces made mainly from epoxy and polyurethane materials.

  11. Thats why Indian Hindi papers are very popular in all corners of India.

    Products a man can purchase in the privacy of his own home,
    without having to take an excursion into some dark-alley porn shop, as if he was purchasing illegal contraband.
    Now, many Indian advertising agencies begin to pay
    more attention to Indian Hindi news and this can be led to the increase in revenue generation.
    Do you have any of your own experiences to share with
    readers from all over the Christian community.

    Lap books are another tool a teacher can use to help students create booklets that they
    will want to keep and review.

  12. Everyone who is into style depends on a great stylist to look good and help
    with hair issues and problems. This article will explain
    the hair product diversion conspiracy and list ways that you can determine whether or not the beloved salon brand you saw in
    Walgreens last week was truly diverted merchandise or strategically placed by the powers
    that be. Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but you can find a few affordable pure silicone
    hair products (see below).
