Super Tot is ALMOST 36 months old!!
Super Tot was very excited to start back up with Tot School last week! He loved his trays, especially the *Mystery Item* activity. We will be doing that again this week with new items. Additionally, here are some of our other activities for the week.
First, sort coins by type (there are 10 of each). Next, place 9 identical coins on the spaces provided in the Spend / Save column, and 1 identical coin on the appropriate space in the Tithe (Give) side.
Super Tot is starting to get money on occasion, and I want him to have a Biblical understanding of loving others not only through actions & outreach, but also through tithing. He is clearly too young to have any understanding of percentages, but he loves counting. I thought I would use that skill to teach him the basics, by using 10 of the same type of coin. He can easily count out 9 coins and see that there is one left. It will be natural for him to learn that one out of every 10 (if they are the same) is for giving. This is obviously a concept that will continue to develop, but I know his heart and skills are ready to start grasping this Biblical math.

Cut each strip between the stickers.
Sports Ball Counting
Place the correct number of erasers into the eggs using the number written on each egg.
Each sports ball egg has a number written on it. Super Tot will open each egg and place the correct number of matching erasers in the egg. Then, he will close the egg back up.

Place each shape onto the correct mat.
I created the mats and printed them onto cardstock. I will get a printable ready and attach it to this post later this week. In the pail are 7 colors of each wooden shape. Super Tot will simply place the shapes onto the correct mats.
Place each sticker over the matching vehicle on the mat.

Duplo Pattern Matching
Recreate each pattern using the duplo bricks in the wooden crate.
We will do this many times with various patterns. I know Super Tot will enjoy this one.
