Did you catch last week's post about getting your hyperactive toddler to focus? If you didn't, catch it here. In it, I announced an awesome new project which is launching super soon! Little City Tot School is a monthly subscription service that provides you with monthly tot school lesson plans. Enrollment is now open! It's a great way to start your new year off right!
In Little City Tot School I will provide you with weekly themes and activities to go with it. But in case you want some extra activities or if you want to learn more about tot school before starting your Little City Tot School lessons, I thought I would share some of our favorite tot school resources! These are things that help me come up with activities, find theme ideas, or that have tot school tips.
Tot School Resources
This may be a sort of "duh" resource but I also wanted to share my favorite boards with you! Pinterest is a wealth of information for pretty much topic in the world so it's a great place to go for tot school theme inspiration. I've got a board with general tot school tips and activities and then I've broken down the boards by theme: Occupations + Construction, Bible, Book Based, Transportation, Body Parts + About Me, Animals + Nature, Alphabet + Numbers, Colors + Shapes, Places + Events, and Seasons + Holidays. A few of the tot school boards that I follow include Let's Tot School, Tot School Ideas, and Simply Learning Tiny Tot School. If the idea of going through Pinterest and planning tot school lessons overwhelms you, Little City Tot School is the answer for you! Pinterest is still a great place for you to find DIY educational and FUN games to make for your kiddo.
Simply Learning Kids
Kaitlyn has a great list of theme ideas on Simply Learning Kids as well as curriculum ideas. Her lessons are great but I needed to keep the activities more affordable and I got too stressed trying to do it all and I wanted a set up that was a bit more organized.
This website is an amazing mecca of toddler-friendly activities. I mean seriously, I could spend hours on Susie's site browsing all of the fun ideas! She also has book recommendations, parenting tips and tricks, bath-time activities, activities perfect for summer, and so much more! You'll love her site, promise!
Your Vibrant Family
Your Vibrant Family has great tips related to homeschooling. Most posts relate mostly to older kids and grade school aged homeschooling but there are great tips for keeping things affordable, activities for kiddos, and school organization tips.
So mamas, do you do tot school with your little one? What resources help you plan out lessons and activities?
