Tot School-Week 4


Another great Tot School Week here! We started the week with these fun Lauri number puzzles. I’m just focusing on 1-5 right now. He is starting to recognize the numbers and he can definitely count and he knows what number comes next.

He’s been really into this book lately. It’s “5 in the bed and the Little One Said” by DK. Basically counting backwards right?


Remember how I said he likes to do a couple pages and then falls out of the chair to do push-ups and jumping jacks?


Here’s the proof! hahahaha! He cracks me up!

He’s a little young for this shape game, but he did surprisingly well. And all on his own started talking about making squares and circles.

So…I tried to get it on camera. This is a candid look into how LOUD my house is sometimes! This was particularly bad because I was filming and didn’t want to yell, “BEEEE QUIIIIIET!” You can see how distracting all that fun was to Laffy Taffy. After I turned off the camera, I scolded the little noise-ys! lol

Categories! See his tongue? It’s his “thinking” face!


I was exploring whether or not he could do a pattern, he couldn’t. It turned into a matching game.

The weather was wonderful this week and he spent lots of time playing in the back yard.

Monday we are going to the MN State Fair—he’s going to get all his 5 sense WAY OVER stimulated! It will be great!
