That's right, this past week my kids were gone. They went to the grandparents for the "weekend" - well, Friday - Tuesday!
With that said, I have challenged myself to look for teaching opportunities with my kids while we are playing together. For example, today, my boys and I were playing trucks. I was
assigned given the truck with the front loader. I used the bucket to fill the truck with the alphabet letters. Well, my 2 1/2 year old saw what I was doing and quickly took over the truck. While he was lifting the letters - I had him name each letter :-) Or when we play farm with my 1 1/2 year old, we only speak animals (make animal sounds) for all of the animals. Nothing is cuter than hearing a kid say "moooooo"!!
The only thing I worked on this week for my Tot School with the boys is finalizing my lesson plan format. Nothing big! I also took time to read through lesson plans for ideas!
Thanks for all of the great comments last week! I appreciate the thoughts and encouragement from everyone else that is also working on this process.
Enjoy your week!
