Sorry B mommy is bored.
B started school today. In his playroom. I've been so inspired by all the pinterest stuff I see on "toddler" education one of my goals this year was to actually do it. SO B's learning corner was started. I'm trying to plan all my lessons out way in adavance and put them in file folders so it's just a "go-to" type of thing. If I have to plan every week I know I won't do it. There are some amazing blogs about what other mom's have done and I basically just took all of their wonderful ideas and sort of adapted them to fit B, our schedule, and what I have on hand. I'm planning 2 week units that focus on a certain theme, letter, number, shape, and song. Sounds like a lot but it really isn't. So I'm taking all this motivation to pre-plan most of the activities. So far we are almost a week in and it's actually been quite fun. I just try to do a small 15 minute or so activity in the morning and one in the afternoon. If we are busy that day and can't do the activity then we simply don't do it. This week's lesson was about cars, learning to count, learning our shapes and colors. Here is his "Learning corner" and his Chicka chicka boom boom tree.
