Tot School- Summer Time

Our library has started their summer reading program.  We are all signed up to read books.  If she reads 20 books this summer she wins a free game of put put golf and also get a prize each week for reading 5 books.  She loves trips to the library.  They have computers, a train table and so many books!!  We will be planning to go at least once a week.  They also have programs and special guests all summer long, seems like some fun events.  Most libraries do some sort of summer reading program make sure you check in to see what your local library is up to this summer.  

We are planning to spend alot of time outside this summer what fun!!  Little bit loves going for bike rides and kayaking trips she really enjoys any kind of outside adventure. 

We have not done as much sit down and work type of school things instead we have added a lot of education into what we are already doing.  Counting crackers, spotting letters in our books.  Talking about front and back when getting in the grocery cart.  She loves playing with her letter magnets on the fridge.  She has two sets and is able to match the letters up.  I am planning to add in a little more paper work back into our school time, but our focus will continue to be learning through the environment.

We got a need toy for tot time at a garage sale this weekend.  It is a pegboard with larger shaped pegs.  It has already been well worth the $1 we paid for it.  So far I have let baby bug explore it on her own she has rearranged the pegs and built tall towers.  I plan to guide her in some sorting with it this week.
