Tot School- Week 3


Such a fun week we had! I spent some time the weekend before printing out and putting together some file-folder games for Laffy Taffy. This first one is a color/pattern matching game. The yarn is supposed to be the frog's tongues…He loved it!

The second one is another color matching game with a leaf theme! I am so longing for fall and I think that is why I chose this game!


And the last one is a Noah’s Arc animal matching game. He had to match the males with the females. We had fun discussing the different animals and the sounds they made.


Counting Pegs. He loves to count!

I started out with simple shapes for him to find by feeling around in the bag. He would tell me what shape he was looking for. He knows all his shapes!

Then with the more difficult tiles, I just let him match the blocks with tiles.

We always do puzzles!


Laffy got to go bowling this week too! Boy did he enjoy that! He played 2 full games and carried that 6 pound ball each time it was his turn!

And lastly, he had fun building with his big blocks.

Another great week! So happy to have this little Tot—he is a joy to his whole family!
