Tot School ~ Catching up!

~ Kaleb is 39 months ~

It has been FOREVER since I’ve posted about our Tot School activities.  Not that we haven’t been doing stuff with Kaleb ~ but he hasn’t been doing as much planned/focused activities as usual. These last two weeks have been much better, so here’s a little look at some of the things we’ve been up to!

I thought I had a picture of Kaleb playing the animal sorting game, but my brain must be mistaken. He really amazed me at how well he was able to sort all of the animals in the Animal Sorting File Folder Game I put together this week.

Before this cute little Melissa & Doug farm sound blocks disappear from our house, Kaleb had to play with it one last time.  I actually had it sitting out to give to a friend, but Kaleb had fun matching up the animals to hear their sounds.

We had fun sorting pom poms by color in an ice cube tray from the Dollar Tree ~ the rainbow order came from an older sister who insists that all colors must be sorted JUST SO!


Some friends of ours were kind enough to give us an electronic drum set for the boys. I’m still trying to come up with a way to appropriately thank them for their generosity {ahem}. 


This picture is from a few weeks ago, but Life on the Farm has been one of Kaleb’s favorite games to play. Thank goodness the game is made out of a thick foam ~ super sturdy since he is rough on it. It’s been great too for going over our shapes and counting and colors.


We took a trip to the children’s museum and Kaleb was fascinated by these tubes that would suck scarves in and blow them out up high ~ kept him occupied for quite some time! :)


The dinosaurs were also something Kaleb spent a lot of time playing on ~ insisting that they were his ‘family’. I have no idea….


And potty training…want to see how well it is going?? You can read more about the bribery initial potty training attempts and some umm…. technical issues. :)

  • Love the idea with the ice cube trays! Looks like we need to take a trip to the children’s museum to see all the new things!

  • Your museum looks awesome. My guy would love all those dinos too. And electric drums. Lucky you. Do they have a place to plug head phones in? Then the kids could hear themselves but you wouldn't have to listen.

  • Hey Jolanthe...awesome fun going on here. You are so amazing with all your creations and also very generous to share your files with your readers.

    I linked to your awesome Geography website from the yahoo group.... I am using your plan, it really is such a great help when you just don't have the time to put everything together.

    I appreciate all that you do, thank you again...truly!

  • My daughter loves that air machine too. She will stand and play for it for atleast the first 20 minutes before I can drag her to the rest of the museum (mainly farm area). Love the pom pom tray idea....I'll make a stop by the dollar Tree today, hope I can find it.

  • I am just starting to get things together to start home preschool with my 2.5 yr old Blaze. I am working on making him the Cars lapbook right now and I have the stuff for a lot of the others already printed out. I love your blog and the links you have are great. Thanks and if there is anything specific that you think would be great to help with developing speech I will be all ears. My son is super smart but behind in speech because of ear impactions and may cases of strep causing him to get really sick and get ear infections. They have cleaned his ears out and I am working with him and he is saying more but I am not sure what else I can do. Sorry to write a book in your comment section haha.

  • Looks like a fun week! I love the pic w/ the undies on his head - looks like something my toddler would do (we are potty training now too). Love your blog! :) <><

  • I have to add my appreciation for the picture of the newest form of hat. Cute. The Children's Museum looks like so much fun. I was thinking I wished I lived somewhere close to such a place, when I realized we do have some sort of science museum/aviation museum a couple of hours away, went there with Girl Scouts when my older daughter was in. Maybe we'll have to make a trip in a year or so.

    Also wanted to let you know, through my blog hopping today I discovered another neat way to meet new blog friends, Tribe Talk, and I chose you as one of my picks.

  • The museum looks awesome - tell me it is near me :) But truly, where is it?

    Love the shot of your son and his undies...LOL!
