Tot School

Tot School
Our princess is currently 24 months old.

We did not do anything different for Tot School this week.  We had busy mornings (which is when we usually do our learning activities), and I really did not plan anything new.  We continued to work on the puzzles and games I have mentioned in previous posts.

I do have some big news though.  For those of you who kept telling me, "She will start talking more, literally overnight"...you were absolutely correct!  On Tuesday she began repeating so many words we told her to say.  She learned Eeyore and Tigger, repeated the alphabet (W is definitely my favorite), and began saying her name with two syllables rather than one!  She has just been improving daily from there, and I am really excited. 

She is showing a lot of interest in letters and knows "A", "O" and "Y" by sight.  Not sure how she learned those, because I didn't teach her!  Maybe it was Sesame Street.  :)  Needless to say, we are going to begin learning letters this week.  I did cut out a letter matching game for her last week that she really loved, and it was more difficult than anything she has done in the past.  We will continue with that and look for some more letter activities!  Any ideas?!  I am thinking we will make an ABC book to begin with.

Here are some pictures from this week.  I did not take any pictures of her doing her puzzles since they weren't new, but these are cute.  :)

We have been doing this a LOT lately.  She likes to get in her "bear cave" with all her stuffed animals, then throw them out one by one, then put them back in behind her...and repeat...and repeat...

What a good little momma!

I was finishing up a scrapbook page when she woke up from her nap, and she wanted to do one too.  Here is the princess' first scrapbook page ever!  I did the cutting, and she did her own pasting and pressing in place.  She's a creative genius, don't you think?  Maybe next time I'll give her better pictures, rather than scraps.

LOVE the picture with all the stuffed animals! My Super Tot is the same age as your little one, and he isn't talking much yet. I'm waiting to that day to hit when he starts talking overnight!

What a cutie pie! My 24 Month Old just started talking recently too-- I was amazed by how much he knew! He loves the alphabet too some of our favorite videos have been a Christian one called Little Buds ABCs (terrible quality- but he loves it) and LeapFrog Letter Factory. I was so surprised he knew all his uppercase letters and I think these videos helped.
