Moms - Tot School Tuesday

As we learn the letter O this week our theme is "Moms".  Today we talked about all the many different things that moms do for us.  We read a silly book, "I Love You, Stinky Face" where a mom loves her little boy even if he's a dinosaur or a stinky skunk.  Moms love us no matter what.  

I had a  few different centers set out at the beginning of school but it seemed that the table full of kitchen things was the biggest hit. 
 The babies were a part of almost every activity, we dressed them (and undressed them) and fed them and carried them all around.
 The peg board didn't get a whole lot of action today, which is highly different from most days that I pull it out, either the other activities were just more engaging or they've mastered the art of playing with peg boards and moved on, I'd like to think it was the former.
 EMan wore this fabric picnic basket as a hat all morning, I think it was his chef hat.
 LilGalA and LilGalE had fun sorting the mommies and the daddies.  Toddlers are starting to understand gender differences and this is a great activity for them.  You'll find it and other great activities in the Moms Tot Pack.
 We played dress up and EMan looks great in my red shirt and black church shoes.
 We're so excited to have LilGalBR join us for our Tuesday Tot School class, it's so much fun to have a new friend!
 So fancy!

 We had a lot of fun making pipe cleaner flowers for our moms.  Everyone picked out their own colors and we twisted them together.

 There is a coloring page at the back of the Moms Tot Pack that has penguins holding flowers.  Everyone colored one for their mom.
 We're still using our gingerbread shaped crayons and they still smell so yummy every time we pull them out.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Miss Amanda! Bree had such a great time at Tot Skool. She woke up this morning and said, "I like my new friends."
