Do you have a toddler at home? I consider toddlers around 15 months and up to 3 years old. I love doing tot school and have found some great ways to do it. I think toddlers benefit from some time during the day that provides them with multiple experiences that broaden their horizon. I like to do theme based days so that the vocabulary I use is consistent from one activity to the next. I also like to do tot school with a number of toddlers so they can learn to explore with other kids and watch how another child similar in age might do something. This also encourages them to try something they haven't done before.
Today was the first day of our 10 month school year at Little Adventures Tot School and boy did we have fun! Our theme for the day was School Tools and you can find all the lesson plans, ideas and printables here. All activities are geared toward toddler aged children. Last year I had 15 months and up kiddos and this year I have 24 months and up, so the days are looking different already. We will be focusing on certain fine motor skills throughout the year and my favorite skill to start with is ripping tissue paper. Being able to rip paper is a great start to being able to hold a pencil, crayon or a pair of scissors.
triangle pencil grips on a few different colors and let them at it. The older kids that will be turning 3 soon practiced holding the grip pinched in two fingers with three fingers under. The younger toddlers were shown that they can hold onto the triangle but there wasn't too much instruction involved. Mostly just coloring on their name that was printed in bubble letters in their art notebooks.
