You may remember me posting quite awhile ago about Tot School that I had been working on with Princess. Basically, it is playing with a purpose. The concept is to use playtime as a time to also teach Princess, and also as a time for the two of us to spend quality time together.
I had given up on Tot School for awhile because I did not have many resources, and I did not want to put forth the effort to come up with things to do. After Princess' doctor's appointment last week, I was encouraged to get back into it. The doctor had said that Princess' receptive language was great and that she was a smart little girl. She told me to work on shapes, animal sounds, colors, numbers, and move right into her ABC's. I'll be honest - I never really thought of working on those things with her. I guess I thought they would come naturally?
