There were many aspects of our Tot School room -- which I set up back in October -- that Ethan had simply outgrown. Our activity wall was set up to teach him facial feature recognition, which he's long since mastered, and things like the weather and colors. Weather he's got down and colors? Well, we're just about finished with those. Our new Tot School set-up is finally complete and ready to be unveiled tomorrow when we kick off another new week of Tot School! I can't wait for Ethan to see his new space, all the changes and get back into the swing of things.
One of the new changes I made was to create a little "music listening to" space. I fully admit to hoarding a ridiculous amount of vinyl in this Tot School closet and Ethan absolutely loves sitting with me and playing the old records. He loves to select an album of his choosing and watch it spin as the music plays. I figured integrating music into our regular Tot School curriculum could be a great thing and really warm up the room!
I also jazzed up the closet doors with some fun decor -- things like colors and shapes. Posting these photos made me realize that our triangle shape seems to have gone missing so I need to reprint that, but otherwise I think it adds some color and life to the boring closet doors! It will be fun to sit and point out the shapes and colors with Ethan to keep him refreshed and up to date with them as we move onto other things, like letters and numbers.
All set to kick off pink week tomorrow -- if only I hadn't somehow lost every dry erase crayon other than blue!
I feel relieved and excited to get the ball rolling with Tot School and cannot wait for Ethan to see his updated Tot School space when he wakes up tomorrow!
