October starts the holiday season and I really do love this time of year, not to mention that it is super easy to theme activities around holidays! So for our October Tot school, we are embracing all things dark and spooky. Just not TOO spooky. She is only 2 after all.

Looking for Tips to stay on top of it all!
As we enter the busy season as well as I get further along in my pregnancy I feel like tot schooling may start to slip a bit…I’m going to try my best but life happens you know! If you have any tips or tricks for keeping on top of the chaos feel free to share them below!
Color of the month : Black
October Tot School will be focused on the color black. We have already done the color white and in the future, we will be combining these as its really hard to do one without the other!
Animal habitat of the month : Desert
We are going to try out something new this month a pick up some themed books from the library. So you will see that I have a book picked for each week. These are just ideas for me to remember. Whether or not the library has that book on the shelf is a whole other thing!
The shape of the month : Triangle
She seems to really be enjoying learning the shapes and I love that because the shapes theme is one of my easiest to plan. You will notice that I repeat a lot of the ideas from shape to shape. I figure the new shape keeps it from getting boring for her and its easy for me!

Halloween Tot school fun!
October Tot Schooling just wouldn’t be complete without some Halloween activities! We are going to mostly be focusing on spiders, as that is something real world and tangible for her to understand.
The way the weeks fell this month we have an extra week in our October tot school plans. I choose to just sorta blend our Halloween theme over with a dash more pumpkin for this week.
Holiday Excitement begins!
I am looking forward to the holiday season this year. Bitty is finally at an age that she is starting to really understand whats going on and she sees the wonder in so much. It’s going to be a fun season! (if I can just keep the belly from slowing me down too much!)

Ummm.. this looks like an amazing plan!
Thank you! I love planning out these activities, even if we don’t get to them all I love having them in my back pocket when we need something to do for a few minutes!
I am so excited that I just discovered your site! Do you have more in depth info about how you incorporate each of your reading/learning/exploring etc sections into each day?
I don’t currently have that no, I may have to work on a day in the life kind of post here soon that would be a great way to talk about it more, but basically we read anytime/all day long. She is super into that right now. Learning/exploration activities are usually after her afternoon nap and/or during dinner prep. Art is usually around lunchtime; sometimes before sometimes after just depends on the day really. Play is the largest part of the day she has free play in the morning from after breakfast until we are ready to leave the house. Then again around lunchtime when we aren’t doing art. Then after her learning/explore activity, she has free play access for the rest of the evening, but we often end up spending a lot of the evening reading! Let me know if you have any other questions!
