Here are some of the activites we are doing in tot school this week!

We are reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See and using the printables from the 1+1=1 Tot Pack: 2-piece puzzles, counting 1-10 and size-sequence bears. We also printed out their colouring pages (though I scaled them down to fit on one page) which you can see in the picture below.

Here you can see the animal colouring sheet that I put together - Nikki did a very good job of keeping the colours on the correct picture. When we coloured the duck, he only coloured the head  so I asked 'what about the duck's bottom?' - he found this hilarious and had to do extra colouring to make sure he coloured each 'bondom'.

We also had some more montessori-style lessons - we used a red straw to blow tiny red puffs across the table, placed purple puffs onto stands (they are the stoppers you are meant to use on medicine bottles when using a syringe - we had them in abundance from when he was tiny and they are perfect for balancing the little puffs on), played with orange pipe cleaners and a blue 'doll' (made from a square of scrap fabric with a stuffed 'head' in the middle) and had some sound shakers - rice, pasta and salt - in small plastic bottles. Nikki especially loved the sound jars.
