The plan is to have a series of posts of things to do with your toddler. Not just activities to keep them occupied, but ways to get them involved in what you are doing. Granted, this will work if you are teaching preschool and kindergarten to older siblings. I have no experience occupying a 2 year old while teaching older children. You can check back in two years though. I am sure I will have come up with a way to teach my 2 year old Harold while teaching Tabitha second grade, Amelia first grade and Hannah Preschool. But, I really don't want to think about that right now; they get old fast enough as it is.
So, we are planning on starting Kindergarten the second full week in August, which will be the week after VBS for us. That is not set in stone of course, but I am hoping to accomplish my goals to get me to the point of being ready. That leaves 3 weeks open for this series of posts.
When I look back on what I did with Tabitha and Amelia, I am finding 3 different topics I would like to discuss.
- Alphabet/sound activities
- Number activities
- Fine Motor Skill Activities
If it doesn't look like we will be starting school the week of the 13th I will add another week of Toddler Idea Tuesday with some miscellaneous ideas.
How would you like to join in? I will make this a linky so you can join in with your ideas on teaching/occupying toddlers while teaching older children. I am looking forward to seeing your ideas as well.
The first linky in the series will go live Tuesday July 24th
