Summer Tot School Plans : August 2019

Summer tot school is definitely more relaxed for us but we still love our weekly themes. This month we have white, Emotions, the Ocean and Circles!

I have been loving the laid back summer break that we have had but I definitely want to try and get us back to at least some sort of rhythm. Our Summer Tot School plans are the way for me to keep us on task, at least a little and keep that TV off!

Color of the Month : White
We are still working on our colors in summer tot school. This month is White and while she already is quite good at recognizing there is no harm in a little extra focus!

This month we are working with the color white. She already knows the sign for white but we will reinforce it and continue to work on all the color signs as well! Bitty’s Birthday is on Wednesday, we don’t have any BIG plans but we will be celebrating as a family and there will for sure be cupcakes! lol

If anyone has a favorite book that heavily features the color white, Let me know! I couldn’t think of any books that we have that really talk about it or even just have a lot of white in them!

Toddler Emotions
Those big toddler emotions can be tricky to handle and I though maybe spending some time talking about what makes us happy or sad pointing out how other might be feeling could help!

We will be at my parent’s place for the week. (one last summer vacation hurrah!) You may notice some repeat activities from when we were on vacation in Alabama. I chose these activities because they are easy to do anywhere or I know that they have what I need to do it there!

I did end up picking the theme of emotions, as toddlers have BIG emotions and the sooner we can help her understand them the better off we all are. That said I am not sure how much we will focus on that as that is still a fairly vague concept for her. Just lots of talking about it and maybe we’ll check out some new books about if from the library!

Habitat and Animal of the Month : Ocean & Sharks
Summer Tot School wouldn't be complete without some Ocean activities!

We needed to have an Ocean theme before the summer was over so here we are! Lots of water play and talk about sharks and other fish this week!

Time to start on shapes : Circles
I am excited to start working more on shapes now that we are a bit older! We will be doing lots of round art and ring play for cirlces!

As Bitty will be 2 by the time we get to this week I think that it is time to start some more focus on shapes. She already knows star, of her own volition so it will be interesting to see how quickly she picks up on the other shapes when we really start to focus!

Again if you have any great recommendations on books about shapes I would love to hear them! Somehow we got this far along and we really don’t have much about shapes!
