Tot School

Tot School
19 months old

As a former preschool teacher, my mind tends to plan in themes so Daphne's first theme is All About Me. We sang the songs Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and If You're Happy and You Know It. We read The Foot Book and Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb.

This week she played with the Linking People. She basically dumped them out and then put them in and out of the bowl.

Daphne tried spooning the pom pom balls from one bowl to the next. She was really concentrating on this one.

We played with Mr. Potato Head. Daphne could play with this forever! She takes the pieces out and puts them back in - over and over. She is getting pretty good at identifying her body parts - so we practiced with Mr. Potato Head (ears, eyes, mouth, arms, nose).

I love the look of concentration on Daphne's face as she moves the pompoms from bowl to bowl. She seems so young to be learning already, but I know she wants to keep up with her sisters! I can't even believe that nightgown fits her already. It seems as if Lucy was just wearing it.
