September Tot School Plans – 2014

Below you’ll see a very quick rundown of our plans for this month.

But first, I thought I’d start with my goals for Tot School:

Tot School Goals:

1) To learn about God’s love for us and others.

2) To practice loving one another.

3) “To expose early learning skills through play.” (from 1+1+1=1)

4) To HAVE FUN!

 

So, the bulk of our plans are going to come from this website, Twinsane in the Membrane. If you’re looking for a fun, thorough, and easy-to-follow curriculum, you should check here! I also like that there are only three weeks of teaching and one week of review/catch-up for people like me! 🙂

Here’s the plan for the September Unit as listed on her blog:

September Unit:

Letters: A, B, C

Color: Red

Shape: Circle

Theme: apples, plants

Number: 3

And here’s a link to her calendar.

Below are a few activities that I want to try to add to our learning this month:

Alphabet Sorting in a Sensory Bin

Apple Pie Playdoh to use for counting on mats like this. (I also might just use pompons and use the apple and tree mats that I have from last year’s unit.)

We’ll also be doing some of our same activities from last year, so feel free to check out this post for more September Tot School ideas.

Finally, for J.D., here’s a little sensory activity from last year’s plans:

Sensory Apples
Use the apple template to cut out apple shapes out of cardboard,
sandpaper, foil, red flannel and bubble wrap. Paint or color apples red.
Once dry, help child feel each apple. Use words to describe apples such
as:
Bumpy
Soft
Rough
Smooth
