Tot School - 25 Months

011

Olivia had a wonderful week in “cool” this week! 
I love seeing the progress she is making,
 and wish I had better documented the boys and Elaina at this stage. 
 Here’s a look at what she did this week:

108

Since the Diva was in “Mm” week,
we did a lot of similar activities for Olivia. 
 She loves this one from Lakeshore Learning Feed the Monkey.

111

This was the first time she tried to use the tweezers.

114

I got out our M for Monster magnet page from Making Learning Fun
She didn’t want to use the magnets this week, but instead asked to color her page.

123


125


126

Then she switched over to using her left hand for a while. 
 I’ve never seen her do that before!

128

She was very focused and intentional with her coloring,
trying to fill in each of the circles.

134

She hasn’t done this puzzle in a while,
and this time around she did very well.

136

She took one section off at a time, and then placed them each back on.

137

I’ve tried to get her to play with Play-doh before,
but normally she refuses. 
 This time she had fun squishing it down onto the letter Mm.

145

These size sequencing monkey’s are part of our Monkey Tot Pack from 1+1+1=1. 
 Here she is making her arms move like a monkey and saying Ooo Ooo.

148

Then she requested to color the monkey’s….

153

Another part to the Tot Pack, Parts of a Monkey. 
She loved this activity, and pointed to each body part as I named them. 
Her vocabulary is expanding so much.

Here’s a peak at the rest of the Tot pack:
 Monkey Parts, What Color Does Monkey Like?,
How Many Monkey’s, Monkey Size Sorting,
and 5 Little Monkey’s Jumping on the Bed.

She did a little Beginner Pattern Blocks

222

And some more coloring…

230

I got out this bean, rice, and macaroni activity
 that I have had since the boys were small. 
 A variety of spoons, scoops, and containers to pour them into. 
This occupied her for at least 25 minutes,
 and she cried when I put it up because it was time for lunch.

We had a few really nice days here this week,
and were able to go to the park that is in our neighborhood.
 Olivia loves to swing and is learning to enjoy the slide. 
She is just like her brothers and sister and loves to do anything outside!

I so wish I had homeschooled since they were little. The memories and bond you are forming is priceless.
