Toddler Tuesday

   The toddlers have been very busy bees lately. Here are  some of the activities that they have been working with.  Graham crackers were crushed with a mortar and pestle. This activity was really interesting to watch, they really worked on having to wait to eat  after others had to be served. Practing using a knife to slice the foods was most often selected work. Lacing and sorting lace by color of the shoe kept this child working for a twenty minute period. Toothbrushing  has been a everyday thing here now. After lunch the children work on lining up as a group to brush their teeth. This so far has been the best practical life skill that I have been able to introduce, and the parents are loving it. " The Five Ladybugs" have kept the children staying  attentive for a story for a five minute period during small group. This activity they have been counting and telling the story with me as I am reading it. They have also been choosing this activity for independent work. Tonging  fruits a big hit as well. This group of toddlers really enjoy almost anything that has to do with food.
 They love their independence and want more new things to do everyday. So very often towards the end of the week I may have to change out objects. Some have their favorites, so sharing has been  reviewed daily. Thanks for stopping by so I can share what work these wonderful toddlers are doing. If you want to see what others are doing with their toddlers head over to onehookwonder.
