Today would have been the start of my 7th year in the classroom. Can you believe that? Time flies. The students I taught my very first year are now entering HIGH SCHOOL! AH, I can’t believe it! It makes me feel SO old!!
So, as school began this year, I decided I’d start a little schooling here at home. Cori and I do Tot School off and on. We were a lot more regular before Finley was born, but then mommy hit survival mode! It’s starting to calm down a little bit around here as Finley gets a bit older and is on more of a schedule. So, I decided today we would have our very own “first day of school.” My goal is to actually get some plans done for Tot School this year so we can maintain more of a schedule as the year progresses. We are going to have so much fun!
This morning we sang songs at breakfast and read a bible story. Then, we got CB dressed for the day and took her “first day of school” picture! SO cute!!
I was reflecting on my “Morning Meeting” time from when I taught kindergarten to see what elements my almost 20-month old could grasp. I decided on weather. So, this morning our first school related activity was making weather cards. I think they turned out really cute!!
Today in Gainesville, the weather was SUNNY and HOT!
Then, we moved on to our first Tot Tray – Jumbles! I just bought these from the Home Goods store over the weekend and knew Cori would love them! She sure did! We counted with them and built with them today.
We spent about 45 minutes together and Cori had such a great time! I LOVE spending time learning with my little girl. Can’t wait for school time tomorrow!
Until next time…
