Tot School~22 months: Cones, Rods, and Puff Balls


Tot School
~JI and TJ are 22 months~

I am not sure if I have mentioned it, but for now, Tot School (for us) is used as a means of keeping the babies occupied while I work with the big three. So, that is why so many of the activities are hands-on manipulative type things. I will pull out just about anything to keep them occupied while we “do school.” With that said, here are some of the things that the babies did this past week.

They used a spoon to scoop puff balls into a cup. Yes, I knew it was time to move on to another activity when all of the puff balls were on the floor and the bowl and the cup were broken! :-)

While the older kids used their cuisenaire rods, I gave the babies a few to play with.

Finally the really enjoyed stacking their cones…but…

they enjoyed balancing them on their heads even more!

    I need more activities like that – to keep my LO occupied. It would make things nicer. :-)

    The cone on the head made me laugh. Thanks for sharing your week!
