Totschool Resources

Here are some of my favourite free Totschool resources. It has been quite a while since I’ve had a tot in the home. My “baby” is 11 years old! Totschool is something I did with all 3 my youngest children and found it incredibly beneficial when I was schooling the older children.

100+ Free Toddler Printables from Totschooling.net

This is a growing collection of free printables for toddlers, designed for ages approximately 18 months – 36 months.

Tot School from 1+1+1=1

Tot School was developed here! The name has spread far and wide across the Internet, but if you’re wondering where the name originally came from, you are in the right place! My oldest son gave the name to this concept when he was just 6 years old…

Tot School isn’t really school at all, it is simply a name given to the idea of learning through play at home during the younger years.

Mommy Made Printables from Totally Tots

Our Mission for Totally Tots is to unite and encourage Christian Moms to train up their children in the way they should go. We desire Totally Tots to be a place where we encourage one another in love, and joyfully share ideas that will strengthen us in training up the next generation of Kingdom warriors. We believe that we can learn from each other’s experiences and provide wisdom gained by them.

We believe that one of the best ways to do this is to encourage each other in faith, by our spoken and written words. It is our hope that as we unite women in Christ, the young will glean wisdom from the old, one will gain strength from another, and together we’ll shed light to the world. Our greatest hope is that through all we share on Totally Tots – that our children will be a reflection of our hearts on fire for His glory.

Totschool resources from Tot School Resources

As a busy mom it can be hard to keep toddlers and preschoolers entertained. I created TotSchool Resources to provide ideas for crafts & activities you can easily do at home whether you’re doing homeschool preschool or just need to keep your little one entertained.

Totschool Activites & Crafts from Shannon’s Totschool

Do you need some inspiration for activities to do with your own tots? You are in the right place!

Totschool: Planning Totschool Trays & Activities For The Week from Year Round Homeschooling with Misty Leask

When Fifi was a baby, I was fortunate enough to go to a little seminar held by Lauryan over at Edukits. The topic of discussion was “Toddler Taming: Stimulating and Teaching Toddlers through Play.” What has stayed with me the most over the last 5.5 years, is the importance of routine and how it benefits both the child and the parent/caregiver.

Teeny Tiny Tot School from Confessions of a Homeschooler

I used a lot of the resources from Confessions of a Homeschooler for my little one when they started joining our school sessions.

There are so many free resources online, I’ve collated a few themes to help you out. You can find those freebies HERE!

Freebie Friday ~ 4 NEW Monsters Ed Christmas FREEBIES

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.

Christmas is fast approaching! I can hardly believe that we are already at the end of 2022. What a roller coaster ride the last few years have been. To celebrate the festive season, I’ve created these FREE early education mini packs. These will remain free on Monsters Ed forever!

Each mini pack includes the following festive activities:
Complete the pattern

Do-a-Dot letter activity (can be completed with either do-a-dot markers, pompoms or stickers)

Number recognition peg activity

Name recognition concertina book

Colour matching cards

I like to make up the mini packs in a file folder. This keeps the activities together and the file folder fits into a large envelope, which is easy to store.

My friend Mick came for a play date with her three children (aged 4, 3 and 20 months) on Friday. The kids had a blast.

Princess Fifi and Miss Fifi had tons of fun.

Miss Fifi listening to Noo read his read aloud

Reading her own story. She is my little bookworm.

Later that day, Noo found a syringe that I use to make the kids jelly (jello) in and had fun playing doctor with Fifi. He would “inject” her and she would say ouchie ♥ They played like this for about half an hour before she got bored with it, LOL.

Is he a doctor or a mad scientist?

Photobucket

Her foot also needed to be injected, LOL

She discovered our Rotary blocks construction set this week and had a ton of fun putting them together in sets of two and taking them apart again. I just love how, no matter how often I brush her hair, her hair always looks so wild ♥

Tiny Tag Along Tot School ~ Water play

~Fifi is 19 months old~

Miss Fifi just loves playing with water. I put on her swimming costume and filled a bucket full of water and gave her a tea set to use for pouring. She poured the water from the white bucket into the red bucket. She spent about an hour and a half playing like this.
Photobucket

She was telling me the water is cold, LOL.
Photobucket

She eventually poured all the water out of the red bucket onto the grass and played in the water/mud.

And then ran around the yard with Koko’s mono-wheel car (which is missing the steering wheel).

Since Fifi is getting more and more difficult to keep entertained during our school day and I’ve rearranged and moved our school area, I decided to follow Carissa’s example and make a designated area for her to play and learn during the boys’ lessons.

Welcome to Fifi’s Tot Spot

Photobucket

This is the bottom shelf of the big book shelf in the school area. This bookshelf is also home to the story books, puzzles and board games. I don’t have nearly enough educational activities for her, I need to start building up her tot stash up quicker.

Photobucket

Here are a few of the goodies I’ve taken out for her to play with for the next week:

Peg puzzles

The ever present Jumbo peg board, her favourite toy right now

Photobucket

A few of her favourite books (There are more, I’m still working on a reading area for her)

Photobucket

While I was busy sorting out her goodies for her Tot Spot, she decided to use the shelf as a bed ♥

Once I had started packing the shelf, she grabbed the peg board and entertained herself while watching a show on TV *giggle*
