Activities for Toddlers

Leave a comment

Here are some activities on our Montessori-inspired shelf this week.  B (25 months) is working on mastering numbers 1-10 and new vocabulary words.  We are working on number values (not just memorizing the numbers).  Sorting and number graphs help explain numbers values.  Check out www.shelfwork.com for some great ideas and printouts.  We also have fun counting random things around the yard or house.  B is also working on mastering the alphabet phonetically.  The letter activity allows practice with letters out of order to assist with mastery.  We are consistently work on beginning sounds of words and then finding the corresponding letter.

Time to be in the garden!  We had fun planting flowers and herbs this week.  B has fun watching our strawberries turn from green to red.  He is learning to be gentle with flowers and general body control.  What is okay to pick and how do we care for plants (and animals)?  We talked about how the sun is hot and trees create cool shade.  We observed birds and had fun listening for them even when we couldn’t see them.  What do you talk about with your  toddler when you are outside or on a walk?
