You know what's the coolest thing about having a sister with kids the exact same age as yours? Everything. But especially having fabulous mom ideas to share with each other. The latest, our attempt at Tot School. At home. God, forgive me for ever mocking homeschoolers. For this household has officially started our homeschool preschool. And by official, I mean we have completed Day 1 of "studying" Apples!
Today we've been doing lots of apple projects, singing apple songs, reading apple poems and duh, eating apples. Here's a little glimpse at our first day of school. And as my student said herself, "Mommy, I didn't even cry at school!" I must be an amazing teacher.
We colored apples
We played a little matching game
Then we traced Lucca's hand/arm for a tree trunk and glued it to a blue sheet of paper, which Lucca fingerpainted. We were attempting to create green leaves on the tree, but she is 2 years old with a creative mind..
Which is just fine by me.
We had a ton of fun, lots of learning for Lucca and mama. My main goal today was just to get Lucca to listen to my instructions and then follow directions. She did great. We are planning on doing this a couple mornings a week for 30 minutes. Upcoming themes we will study include farm, pumpkins, dinosaurs, turkeys and other rad 2 year old appropriate topics.
